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 http://support.brother.com/g/s/id/linux/en/before.html?c=us_ot&lang=en&comple=on&redirect=on. 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.

Fixed PKGBUILD

I can confirm that you need to run cupswrapperhl3040cn -i as root, however the location has changed since greg77's comment. The script is now located at: /opt/brother/Printers/hl3040cn/cupswrapper.

Happy printing!

There is a dependency missing : psutils.
With the command of my previous comment it works pretty well....

I'll try to fix and update this package. This might take some time so please be patient.

Cups complain about a filter missing, in fact you just need to execute (as root)
/usr/share/brother/Printer/hl3040cn/cupswrapper/cupswrapperhl3040cn -i

It creates the filter needed and configures cups, maybe you have to midify the printer in cups.

Hey guys, cheers for the out of date flag. I no longer use this printer as my primary so I hadn't noticed, when I get spare time I will have a look. If you already have a working PKGBUILD it would help a lot.

ATM this isn't a priority for me, as it isn't my primary printer. If someone would like to take over, I have no issue with handing it off.
