i'm not surprised pacaur (and likely any aur helper) has problems building this.

The reason for the versioned dependency on cndrvcups-common-lb is that a cndrvcups-lb version ONLY works with 1 specific cndrvcups-common-lb version .

The correct way to build them goes like this :

build new cndrvcups-common-lb
remove old cndrvcups-lb version (if present on system)
install new cndrcups-common-lb
build & install new cndrvcups-lb version

Easiest way to build this with pacaur : use 2 commands like this :
pacaur -S cndrvcups-common-lb
pacaur -S cndrvcups-lb

package was tested by Holger Jahn using a Canon MF 4100 .
Thanks, Holger.

NOTE : x86_64 only for now.
If you use a 32-bit install and are willing to help, contact me by email.

I am working on a new cndrv-lb package, and have found someone with a printer using this driver that is willing to test things.
The new package is based on the rpm spec file, as canon appears to spends most time on making that working.
A lot of things had to be adapted to the archlinux environment.

veggiemonster, thanks for your remarks, if you wish to help with testing send me an email.
(you can find my email in 1 of my uptodate aur packages).

I installed the cndrvcups-common-2.40 from AUR. Then I modified thi PKGBUILD to use the 2.40 version. I tested both on x86_64 and i686, both on usb connection and ldp network connection. No hope! I also tested with 2.30 package in AUR and I got the same result:

On x86_64: First it was complaining about the FreeType fonts which apparantly a bug which has been introduced with new release (2.4.9) of FreeType:

MF4150_Net-22 Unknown Withheld 1k Unknown completed at
Mon Apr 9 04:25:44 2012
"src = libcanon_pdlwrapper.c, line = 514, err = 0¥nGPL Ghostscript 9.05: Error: Font Renderer Plugin ( FreeType ) return code = -1"

That can be solved either by upgrading to ghostscript-svn or by downgrading FreeType to 2.4.8 and now the message is persistently is:

MF4150_Net_ppd-33 Unknown Withheld 1k Unknown completed at
Mon Apr 9 12:56:12 2012
"src = libcanon_pdlwrapper.c, line = 514, err = 0¥nError Response:ReqNo=2, SeqNo=3,opvpErrorNo=-2"

For i686, if I force it on the x86_64 machine I'll get the same result. If I installed on a i686 machine, in lpd network case, it says completed successfully while no data is transfered to the printer. In usb case, no data is sent to the printer, job status is "processing" for ever.

It's sad because on my partner's ubuntu machine I can install the network printer in a fraction of a minute and everything goes as smooth and easy as ice-cream.

PKGBUILD draft for 2.30:
Is there anyone who is capable of understanding what's going on there?
