For anyone having an offset issue, the page format can't be changed from CUPS, so to use A4 you need to update /opt/brother/Printers/mfcl8690cdw/inf/brmfcl8690cdwrc

@kbabioch - Your solution is required to make this package work.

Without the two symlinks, printing does not work for me either.

I think the PKGBUILD should add these necessary symlinks as part of the process.

You saved me with your comment so thank you!

I think you can now switch the download sources from http to https. ie:

https://download.brother.com/welcome/dlf103215/mfcl8690cdwlpr-1.5.0-0.i386.rpm

https://download.brother.com/welcome/dlf103224/mfcl8690cdwcupswrapper-1.5.0-0.i386.rpm

Thank you!

Was able to fix this issue by creating some symlinks:

cd /opt/brother/Printers/mfcl8690cdw/lpd ln -s x86_64/brmfcl8690cdwfilter brmfcl8690cdwfilter ln -s x86_64/brprintconf_mfcl8690cdw brprintconf_mfcl8690cdw

Not sure if this should be part of packaging or how to address this in the best way. Would be great to see if this is also an issue for others?

Is this package still working for you? Used to work fine for me, but since the latest update I can no longer print.

The log file contains something like this when trying to print a test page:

D [15/Mar/2023:23:05:30 +0100] [Job 1578] sh: line 1: /opt/brother/Printers/mfcl8690cdw/lpd/brmfcl8690cdwfilter: No such file or directory

Not sure if this is the main issue, but at least it doesn't sound right.
