Dear maintainer, unfortunately this driver does not work out of the box. With the current release of this driver and CUPS, you still can add a printer, using the driver provided by the package but printing via network (IPP with DNS-SD, AppSocket/HP, etc.) fails. Every printing job is simply ignored. I patched the PKGBUILD to add lib32-glibc as required dependancy to fix this issues. With my patch printing via IPP with DNS-SD, AppSocket/HP and USB worked again. The patch is available at my Github-Repo, I hope you will integrate it in the driver: Feel free to add feedback I might have done something wrong, as this is my first contribution to Arch.
