What's better to install? Custom (brother-mfc-l2700dw) or generic (brother-brgenml1)? I'm confused

See this example...

Can someone post the working PKGBUILD for this package? Thanks!

PS: it seems that this PKGBUILD works... don't forget to install the a2ps package!

Huge thanks to sakenogawa. I can confirm that his process worked for me as well.

This package doesn't work at all, can somebody fix it? It doesn't seem like the maintainer will do something about it...

For me it works only as sakenogawa says: I use the brother-mfc-l2720dw package and I modify sources and md5sum with the one used here.

Please add also brscan4 as dependency for the scanner and the udev-rule:
/etc/udev/rules.d/99-printer.rules
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0331", MODE="0664", GROUP="lp", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

Why do we need a wrapper? Wha about x86_64 support? What about direct support in CUPS or a fork of it?

What about Gutenprint and Foomatic? What about brscan-skey?

There are tons of driver packages, some of them have a big bunch of drivers:
- brother-brgenml1
- brother-cups-wrapper-ac
- brother-cups-wrapper-laser
- brother-lpr-drivers-ac
- brother-lpr-drivers-laser
- brother-lpr-drivers-common

Kind regards.

Unfortunately, this package did not work for me, because on x86_64 it does not enforce the installation of lib32-glibc and the PPD and filter files are not copied from the /opt tree to /usr.

I decided to adapt the PKGBUILD from brother-mfc-l2720dw using the source links from this package which worked like a charm. Maybe consider modifying this package accordingly.
