Now you'll see this warning message: lpadmin: Printer drivers are deprecated and will stop working in a future version of CUPS.

Not sure what this will mean for the future with this driver.

Thank you, reztho, for your valuable advice! base-devel installed :)

To avoid defective drivers and for correct package manager information, you can translate the original deb packets (cndrvcups-capt_2.71-1_amd64.deb and cndrvcups-common_3.21-1_amd64.deb from CANON https://support-sg.canon-asia.com/contents/SG/EN/0100459601.html) using the debtap program (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/debtap/). Obtain the .pkg.tar.xz arch installation packages. .PKGINFO files can be edited easily before generating .pkg.tar.xz packages. Everything goes perfectly.

'@reztho, been using your driver working fine all thru the years never updated it until a few days ago. Spent alot of time digging & found out the solution, fyi, i'm just a power user not a programmer.

Long story short, found that you need the flag '-no-pie' at LDFLAGS at Line 118 => https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=capt-src#n118 Also found the compiled libbuftool.a needs to be copied to /usr/lib/ then only statusui will build. Hope this helps, Thanks for maintaining & keep updating this driver for so many years, Cheers.


Updates

Finally found out why libbuftool.a was not found during build is bcos ${pkgdir} was not properly expanded :P

LDFLAGS='-L'${pkgdir}'/usr/lib -no-pie'


Updates

In case anyone wants to build the previous version 2.70, it'll work with the above same flag. https://bit.ly/2wUesB1 To know which model is supported then refer to here => https://bit.ly/2CEtRus All credits goes to reztho for this driver.

bluetux, hope you saw the pinned comments. Good luck with that. Keep the installation files somewhere in case you want to uninstall the driver someday. You've lost the whole point of using a package by doing a manual installation in your system: now you have the driver files scattered around your system without the package manager knowing about them.

Cray2TheZ, pacman -S base-devel. This pacman group is a must to have in any system, specially if you're looking to compile stuff like this package. It's a pity that group is not enforced anymore to be installed in the installation guide: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_guide#Install_the_base_packages, as you can see it's mentioned there.

The package is not compiling in Arch, even after installing automake and autoconf. I get a this error:

checking for gcc... no checking for cc... no checking for cl.exe... no configure: error: in `/home/myusername/capt-src/src/cndrvcups-common3.21/buftool': configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

Please help! Thanks!
