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:

https://download.brother.com/welcome/dlfp002258/cupswrapper-ql1060n-src-1.0.6-0.tar.gz

$ find ./ -type f -iname \*.ppd 
./cupswrapper-ql1060n-src-1.0.6-0/ppd/brother_ql1060n_printer_en.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.

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 The package has been flagged out-of-date for over a month.
