You guys need to remove the line 36 in cnijnpr.c that says #include <sys/sysctl.h> or else it won't build. I am a newbie so what I did is I edited the line and made a copy of the file and when it started building I replaced it for the one created. Maybe a dirty way but I got it working.

Hi, it's doesn't build anymore with newver cups. I'm prepared patch that was fixes that. Can you add this to package?

Thanks for your patch.

Using "for" loop for installing packages was nice, And also removing symlink
from .install to PKGBUILD. But I didn't change the "pkgrel", Since it's just an
edit on PKGBUILD itself. It's fools users to update.

I've rewritten the PKGBUILD, I've split the package() function from build(). Also the /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij symlink is included in package.

UPDATED Release number.
Now it will be listed as a package that need to be updated through "yauort" or
other AUR helpers.

Actually not all cnijfilter* are compatible, When there weren't
"cnijfilter-mp280" I've tried to use others like mp270 which was
working properly but other packages didn't worked for me or at least properly.

"--program-suffix=mp280" for each will set some useful(not very
required) information for each package and lib. Seems most of canon driver on AUR
failed to compile/build due to this issue.

Anyway, Still I'm using my mp280 printer and I would like to take the ownership
of cnijfilter-mp270.

Yes, that seems to work, well done. By the way I think we should unite all these cnijfilter* packages. Why not provide all the ppd? I think the suffix mp280 added is purely cosmetic. I was using the the cnijfilter-mp250 package ( with a mp270 printer which is actually the same package (moreover the maintainer of the last package was asking for someone to take over his package in a comment).

No need to install older version of automake from AUR.
I've patched the source code, And it built successfully.
Please try it and give a feedback if it's works for you properly.

@Alir3z4 I agree that to properly fix the source would be better. But perhaps we should propose a working package in the meantime. If someone find a better fix, we could always apply it. At least using the other version of automake would allow users to print and would not damage anything. My opinion is that a dirty hack to compile a package is always better than nothing at all.

Alir3z4 commented on 2013-01-10 19:04

Yes, Correct.
But I don't think using other version of `automake-1.11` which from `AUR` would be the Right solution. We should looking for a generic solution, by generic I mean not using other version of `automake`, Have to find a way to patch the source code itself.
