Hello, could you update links to https?

The path given in the comment from 2012-09-12 has a mistake. "/usr/local..." is wrong, use "/usr/share..."! "/usr/share/brother/Printer/dcp585cw/inf/brdcp585cwrc". There you will find the file and you can change "Letter" to "A4". I checked it and it works.

if anyone experience margin problems (no top margin; huge bottom margin), you could try the following: Edit the paper size parameter in "/usr/local/Brother/Printer/dcp585cw/inf/brdcp585cwrc" to the paper size. For example, change "Letter" to "A4"

I have no clue if i'm honest. I just copied the PKGBUILD from dcp c130 printer driver. You can find it here in the aur. just remove it and check if it works without tcsh. Later this week I get a new computer. So i have to fresh install Arch. Good chance to test the installation without tcsh.

i'am just curious, why is tcsh as dependency needed?
