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

Still doesn't print to the LBP7600C model :-(

updated to latest version

I've checked several of the supported printers and found no newer version of the UFR II driver.

However, some of them now don't list UFR II anymore but ANOTHER driver, called CQue .

there is an aur package for CQue here :

Is this really out-of-date? If so, a link to the new version would be helpful as finding anything on the CANON homepage is next to impossible.

lib32-libxml2 is in [multilib] repository, check /etc/pacman.conf to verify you got it enabled.

try creating these symlinks :

/usr/lib/ > /usr/lib32/

/usr/lib/ > /usr/lib32/

redatkins commented on 2015-02-28 14:06

Where are the files that need to be symlinked to /usr/lib?
Can't get this to work, I get:
Error: target not found: lib32-libxml2

Symlinking the two libs fixed it for me.

Thanks, that would be great ...

I have been forced to use Windows under VMware to be able to print for already a cup of years ... In the past I also tried the cndrvcups-lb-bin but did not work as well with the LBP7600C model although a different error was printed on the page that came out.

I have looked at the gentoo ebuilds, and found they are very close to mine.

there are however 2 comments in them that are new for me :

cndrvcups-lb # c3pldrv dlopens the absolute path /usr/lib/
cndrvcups-common-lb # c3pldrv dlopens the absolute path /usr/lib/

I've checked comments on the aur capt-src page, and those appear to confirm some libraries are only found when they are in /usr/lib .

The cndrvcups-lb-bin package which is based on the debian binary canon includes does have all libraries in /usr/lib .
If canon code indeed uses absolute pathsd, that would explain why we have cases where the binary package works, but the one build from source not.

I will look into symlinking the libs mentioned in the gentoo ebuilds so they can be found from /usr/lib .

I've looked at those sources in the past, and afaict the only difference with the UK & US sources is in the license / list of supported printers.

I see 2 possible causes for the problems with canon drivers :
- the spec-files in the source are NOT the ones used by canon to build the binaries (there are some configure options in the spec files that are not supported by the source configure/make files)

- canon builds the drivers against an older ubuntu version (possibly 12.10 )
and latest versions of cups/autotools etc have changed to much.

Since i last checked how other distros deal with canon UFRII printer driver, it seems gentoo has made progress.

I found v 2.90 ebuilds

I'll try to figure out the gentoo macros and compare them with my pkgbuilds.
