Installing OK after applying:

Then it would fail to print anything with:

PID 149084 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_ql570) stopped with status 126 (Text file busy)

At which point I installed it manually according to the instructions here: This works, and the key difference seems to be that this filter script is created mode 700 by this package, and 755 by the 'cupswrapper' script run manually. I'm not sure how to fix that in the PKGBUILD - chmod doesn't seem to have any affect.

The only other difference is the existence of a couple of *.ppd files when I do it manually, but I don't think they're crucial, it's just the permissions issue.

In my case cups-filters is a dependency on cups itself, which is already a dependency of this package. Why do you need a2ps? I haven't installed this package and it works fine for me. How do you trigger an error regarding the non-existence of a2ps?

Thanks for packaging both these in one, very convenient! Suggest a small addition to dependencies: I needed cups-filters & a2ps before the filter would run.
