As the main branch has been unresponsive for a while, we might want to consider updating this package to the following fork:

With my Brother HL-L2320D printer, I received a CUPS state on a print job of "Unable to launch Ghostscript: gs: No such file or directory". Installing ghostscript "sudo pacman -S ghostscript" remediated this issue. Suggest potentially adding "ghostscript" as an optional source?

I am able to get my Brother HL-L2370DW working with the HL-L2360D driver that was bundled with this. Works like a charm, thanks!

The description is "CUPS driver for the Brother DCP-7065DN", but it should be "Driver for Brother laser printers" (source)

If anyone (like me) is having problems where the printer silently fails to print, switching to the brlaser-git AUR package fixes it. The author of brlaser hasn't tagged a new release in a while, so the latest release (v6) doesn't include the commit https://github.com/pdewacht/brlaser/commit/9d7ddda8383bfc4d205b5e1b49de2b8bcd9137f1 that fixes this issue.

For Google-ability, I had this issue on a Brother HL-L2300D series printer.

You can add "aarch64" to supported architectures

You need to add cmake to makedepends. Also, you can add "armv7h" to supported architectures :)
