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

When I recompiled with the Japanese sources, the monochrome model LBP3410 works fine but I cannot get the color model LBP7600C to work. It only prints some message about TIFF error. I even modified the source to point to the correct 32bit libraries in Arch:

i.e. in

modify to
%ifarch x86_64
%define libs32 /usr/lib32
%define locallibs /usr/local/lib

The Jap. sources are downloadable from HERE:

In the past this worked flawlessly for the older LBP5400 color model. I don't know what is so special about the model LBP7600C. The site fully supports other Linux distrib such as Debian. When I tried the compile the binary version according to cndrvcups-lb-bin it also fails :-(

I had the problem, described by xmachina47x and pngaudioguy with a MF5940dn on x86_64. Installing the binary packages didn't work in my case. Installing the canon cQue driver (canon-cque on aur) was the only solution (pxl and pcl drivers)

good catch, Chais.
new version uploaded

You're currently trying to overwrite /usr/bin with a file. Luckily it fails. The line should be
mkdir -p "${pkgdir}"/usr/{bin,share/{caepcm,cnpkbidi,ufr2filter}}

I've looked again at this package, noticed that the cpca module part was build with different flags then the others and split that part to a separate package.

Same problem here, I also used to get sheets of paper with the message "**** Unable to open the initial device, quitting." with this package. I tried it with cndrvcups-lb-bin and everything works! I guess there is still some unresolved dependency on a 32bit lib.

Giggaflop ,

thanks for actively checking if there is a newer version of this driver.

However, look at the release date of the 2.10 version : june 2010 .

Canon appears to increase the version number with 10 on every release, so next version will likely be 2.100 , not 2.10 .

2.10 released:

I as well had the “Unable to open the initial device, quitting” problem, with CANON IR1730. It works with the cndrvcups-lb-bin AUR package.

i had the same problem as pngaudioguy ("Unable to open the initial device, quitting" + "If you can read this , you are using the wrong dirver for your printer") and resolved it the same way: installed the cndrvcups-lb-bin(thankyou pngaudioguy for the hint) also from AUR.
The printers that gave me the heaadaches are Canon mf5940dn and Canon Isensys mf4780w.
Hope this helps someone cause i lost 10 hours with this.
