retho and veger,

Many thanks for your great work on this package, which continues to get better and better. This is the first time I haven't had to link /usr/lib32 libraries to /usr/lib in order to get the printer to print. Again, thanks.

capt requires extra/ghostscript in order to work and will silently fail otherwise.

Updated to version 2.70!

Thanks to veger for his contribution to the package.

While I indeed did forget to click the Flag out-of-date button, I thought I would you the courtesy of providing the link to the updated software, instead of merely flagging it as out of date and letting you hunt around for the new software as the upstream URL doesn't host it.

I'm sorry if that inconvenienced you.

Aerion, flagging the package out-of-date is enough.

I was aware of the new version, but it's very tedious to update the package since it has so many lines inside... so I'll update the PKGBUILD when I have time.

Version 2.70 was released on September 4, 2015. See

The ccpd.service file needs to be updated to reflect the renaming of cups.service to org.cups.cupsd.service

reztho, just did! We'll see if there will be any progress. :)

dian, that's the way Canon released this. It's a mix of propietary / open source software. I followed their packaging instructions for the .deb / .rpm versions and adapted it to the Archlinux way.

zeljko, I guess you can try to contact with Canon support about this subject.
