You might add a replaces line in your PKGBUILD and file deletion requests for both packages afterwards

I've came up with a package named brother-ql700 [1] that combines the lpr package as well as the cupswrapper package into a single package where all of the necessary files (PPD, filters) are available. This is in accordance with how Brother drivers should be packaged in Arch [2]. It is more lightweight and easier for the user, since he doesn't care about the details.

Feedback is very much appreciated.

I had a look at that source and sadly the only thing that gets compiled there is one file with definitions and a few functions. It does not link against anything except C, so there would not be any benefit from building this from source...

Nice! :)

I'll update the package today or tomorrow.

Brother's released the source code!

Lol. Getting binary packages to work can be a black art at times.
One of the problems I had was that the original rpm was installing (and was linked) to things in places meant for a Redhat system.

You'll have to make sure that things are missing. strace and a hex editor helps a lot. You'll also need to track down any possible errors for each binary that gets run. cups does indicate, albeit not very well, what it's missing.

If you are missing the postscript files, then it's likely you are having them installed/generated in the wrong place (or not at all).

I don't have a QL710W so I have no way of testing the PKGBUILD. This particular PKGBUILD took a lot of testing on my part...

My advice would be to take my PKGBUILD and attempt to modify it to build a package for the QL710W (then submit it :P).

71GA commented on 2014-07-29 16:58

Is it possible to create another installation file for QL710W model? Please.

Please note that this package will automatically add the USB printer. Make sure it's turned on.
If you get a flashing red light when printing, make sure to set the paper size correctly in cups.
