I was able to avoid the use of deb2targz using ar (part of binutils, part of base-devel) :

pkgdesc="LPR and CUPS driver for the Brother MFC-9330CDW"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('perl' 'brscan4' 'a2ps' 'lib32-libcups')

package() {
    cd $srcdir || return 1
    [ -d "mfc${model}" ] || (mkdir mfc${model} || return 1)
    for i in *.deb;do ar x $i && tar -xzf data.tar.gz -C mfc${model};done || return 1
    cd mfc${model} || return 1
    cd opt/brother/Printers/mfc${model} || return 1
    perl -i -pe 's#/etc/init.d#/etc/rc.d#g' ./cupswrapper/cupswrappermfc${model} || return 1
    perl -i -pe 's#printcap\.local#printcap#g' $srcdir/mfc${model}/opt/brother/Printers/mfc${model}/inf/setupPrintcapij || return 1
    cp -rf $srcdir/mfc${model}/usr/ $pkgdir/ || return 1
    cp -rf $srcdir/mfc${model}/opt/ $pkgdir/ || return 1

Also I'm trying to see how to avoid the printer being overwritten (changing back to default settings and being a USB printer) at each install of a new version of that package due to the call to the postupgrade() function. Shouldn't that one only be called at install time ?

jfk's comment is still accurate. lib32-libcups needs to be installed in order for this printer to work properly.

Following Onishin old tip, I confirm you may need lib32-libcups. "Generic-PCL_6_PCL_XL_Printer-pxlcolor.ppd" is not really working in my case.

  • If not already done uncomment mutlilib on /etc/pacman.conf (both lines):


Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

  • Run pacman.

I think the dependency on brscan4 should be optional.

It's probably a driver issue (and not a aur package one), but in my case I can't use properly this driver : the printer don't want to print hereticaly I have to use Generic-PCL_6_PCL_XL_Printer-pxlcolor.ppd instead...

What's the point of deb2targz? makepkg already extracts the .deb file for you, you just have to tar file that was inside it and is already there.

I've got an issue where this driver tries to print 10 copies of everything. I've tested with various applications as well as lp itself, all signs point to this. Another user has reported a similar problem here:

New version uploaded.

On my computer, the single quotes on the license line are giving an error. Replacing them by double quotes solves the issue.

I think add dependence lib32-libcups is good idea . Not work if lib32 cups is not present
