[SOLVED] help fixing PKGBUILD for brother-ql1060n / AUR Issues, Discussion & PKGBUILD Requests / Arch Linux Forums

Given that there are some proposed changes: Does anyone have an up to date version of the PKGBUILD? Happy to update, but a little bit tight on time currently. Alternatively, also happy to hand over maintainership.

It appears the ppd file is not present in the sources used by this PKGBUILD... Brother now seems to only provide the ppd file in it's source file:

$ find ./ -type f -iname \*.ppd 

I copied the file to /usr/share/cups/model after running the normal installation with this repo's PKGBUILD, and now I can print again.

Please apply this patch to the 1.0.6r0-1 PKGBUILD:

warning: If your brother-ql1060n is installed and working, updating using this PKGBUILD will cause your printer to stop working. At least that is what happened on my two computers where I have the printer installed.

@kbabioch FYI this package is no longer working. It creates a brother-ql1060n-1.0.6r0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz file that is missing the cups filter. Other files appear to be missing too. For exampke, the path /usr/share/cups/model/ in the package is empty.

I believe Brother has renamed the filter so it no longer matches the pattern lpdwrapper

I've bumped the version to 1.0.6, please try and verify whether it is working as expected.

@the-k: All of this is voluntary work. I'm working on this during my free time, so I won't provide any ETA ;-). Patches are welcome, of course, though ;-).

Hi. Any ETA on the update? The package has been flagged out-of-date for over a month.
