The driver needs the "gs" binary to work, which is provided by package "extra/ghostscript". I think this should be added as a dependency. Other than that it works right out of the box, thank you!

The patch is added in the latest release. Sorry for the long time it lasted to push it, it did not happen to affect myself, so I could not confirm it.

I had the same problem as andimueller. It presented itself as being unable to print in mono and subsequently finding that settings were being ignored in favour of the opt file.

I can confirm that andimueller's fix works (apart from the typo):

chown root:lp /opt/brother/Printers/hl3040cn/inf/

chmod g+w /opt/brother/Printers/hl3040cn/inf/

Yes, you're right. I'll update the dependency packages

lib32-glibc is reported as a dependence, yet lib32-glibc is not a target

There is a problem with the package on both my x64_86 and i686 systems. The printer doesn't recognize the printing options and with cups in debugging mode there is this in the error_log: "[Job 4] Error: "/opt/brother/Printers/hl3040cn/inf/brhl3040cnrc.old :cannot open file !!". I found out, that this is caused by by a permission problem, the group "lp" needs write permissions on the "/opt/brother/Printers/hl3040cn/inf" directory. To fix this I had to change the group and permissions of the group: "chmown root:lp /opt/brother/Printers/hl3040cn/inf/" "chmod g+w /opt/brother/Printers/hl3040cn/inf/" Could you please update the PKGBUILD with this fix?

I updated the PKGBUILD and added psutils to the dependencies as suggested in Installing a2ps pulled in psutils whichs is why that also worked. However, psutils should be enough.

I had to install the package 'a2ps', because I saw "No pages" in the logs without a printout and somehow this solved it. I don't know, if that's maybe a hidden dependency.
