Shutdown is so slow in16.04 – Ask Ubuntu

ccpd = Canon Printer Daemon for CUPS

On a system with Linux MINT 18 (based on Ubuntu 16.4 LTS) and a Canon LBP7210C network printer, I did this for a faster timeout to take precedence.

Edit the override.conf file

$ sudo systemctl edit ccpd.service

and enter


to set the timeout to 10 seconds. Save and exit.
This change will prevail between each shutdown.

To check the modified timeout value, run

$ systemctl show ccpd.service -p TimeoutStopUSec

The same method was used in this post for a different service.

Note: Each service has a timeout and its there for a reason. Changing the timeout for a network printer seems OK. For other services (eg: disk drives) the effect of changing a preset value must be carefully considered.
