Thank you for this wonderful package!

Please add ghostscript package as a dependency. I spent about 10 hours (really) to find out that the printer does not print because cups cannot find the "gs" command. It worked under Ubuntu 17.10 in a VM, so I knew it must be an issue in my current Arch installation. I found out what was going wrong by setting the log level in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to "debug2" and scrolling through the error output. I finally found that line:

[Job 52] which: no gs in (/usr/lib/cups/filter:/usr/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin)

After having installed the ghostscript package via pacman -S, the printer works like a charm now.

@Luken: And I'm not sure whether you also need lib32-glibc, as stated by alex_de. You might want to check this and maybe add it to the dependencies as well. Could save a lot of work for users who do not read the comments :)

You have to choose jetdirect-printer in the add printer dialog, lpd-printer and hl-l2340d didn't work for me. I also had to enable multilib in /etc/pacman.conf to install lib32-glibc which is needed by the driver.

You must have the multilib repository enabled on x64.

Installation fails due to missing lib32-glibc, which pacman does not know about. Can someone point to a workaround?

Fine work. Thanks a lot.
I have another Brother : HL-5340DL. How can I proceed to get such a package from the Brother's drivers?

dpc you have to install "base-devel" group of packages before you will be able to build anything.

Seems to work for me. Thanks Luken!
