When decreasing the version of a package you should also increase the epoch variable. Otherwise aur helpers, and pacman, will think the older, but higher, version is newer.

Reverted to 2.4_1. Sorry for the trouble, but I cannot seem to get the new package to work. Again, sorry!

After moving the file /opt/brother/scanner/brscan-skey/brscan_mail.config so the package can be installed I get

/tmp/alpm_oeM7NG/.INSTALL: line 26: /opt/brother/scanner/brscan-skey/ No such file or directory

And in /opt/brother/scanner/brscan-skey/brscan_mail.config there's the line


which looks odd and was


in the previous version.

I came here for that conflict error, yet no package claims that file.

Maybe it's safe to force install?

I also get the error brscan-skey: /opt/brother/scanner/brscan-skey/brscan_mail.config exists in filesystem

I got the following error when upgrading this latest package (0.3.1_1-1):

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) brscan-skey: /opt/brother/scanner/brscan-skey/brscan_mail.config exists in filesystem Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

To any users, please reply here with any problems or lack thereof with the new update (0.2.4_1 -> 0.3.1_1). It is a big jump and some of the code base changed.

This version 0.2.4_1 is old. Can you update new version 0.3.1-1, 64 bit?

You must add brscan-skey to lp like gpasswd -a brscan-skey lp then brscan-skey.service will work (see udev config rules).
