Hi FuzzyCheese,

Would you like to submit a patch and become a maintainer? I don't use Archlinux anymore and I don't have the printer. I've added you as a Co-Maintainer in case you would accept :-)

Found a bug in /usr/share/brother/Printers/HLL2360D/cupswrapper/brother_lpdwrapper_HLL2360D

Symptom: When printing in Inkscape, paper size was set to custom and printer would fail with "Filter failed" status. Error in /var/log/cups/error_log: "Can\'t use an undefined value as a subroutine reference at /usr/lib/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_HLL2360D line 557 "

Assumed Cause: The Brother filter does not properly handle units not being passed with custom paper size. If no units(pt,mm,inch,in,cm,m,ft,etc.) are passed in command, conversion function address is not assigned and filter fails with error mentioned above.

Fix: Initilaize $unitfunc to address of sub pt2dot. Find around line 540: sub check_custom_paper { my $x = 0; my $y = 0; my $unitfunc; my $unit = ''; my $ssize = '';

change "my $unitfunc;" to "my $unitfunc = \&pt2dot;" This causes the unspecified units to be processed as "pt".

Yeah that could be- with installing brother-cups-wrapper-laser I also installed some of the dependencies that package has that I didn't have installed previously so it might have been another one of them. It was definitely installing that package that got my setup working though.

That's strange because I haven't installed this wrapper and yet it's working correctly (also HL-L2365DW) - so it can't be required or there's a package I have installed with similar functionality.

Could I suggest adding brother-cups-wrapper-laser to the dependencies? Couldn't find anywhere saying it was required yet it is (at least for Brother HL-L2365DW)

I did it, thanks.

This is also for the Brother HL-L2365DW. Maybe add it to the description?
