Does it work for my Epson WF-3725 printer? Any raccomandations to follow prior to install this package? Thanks.

@AngryUbuntuNerd I figured out what the problem was. My system (uname -r --> 5.5.13-1-MANJARO) has the following default LDFLAGS configured in /etc/makepkg.conf:


Removing those flags gets the package to compile flawlessly. Kind of sad that the default flags fail just like that :(

@AngryUbuntuNerd thank you very much for the answer, I'll look into it

I just tried again with a freshly updated Arch Linux (x86_64) and it works:

checking whether the C compiler works... yes

Either a problem with your PC, or there is a dependency missing. Let me know.

makepkg fails with

checking whether the C compiler works... no
configure: error: in `/home/alberto/build/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2/src/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2-1.1.9':

Is it a problem in the package or in my computer?

Interesting part of the config.log:

Now up to 1.1.9

violaian commented on 2020-02-22 06:23

Version 1.1.8-1 is posted

nsmcclellan commented on 2020-02-08 04:07

Wow 1.1.6-1 already.

nsmcclellan commented on 2020-01-29 22:22

Time to update this again. New file path:

Looks like a version bump to 1.1.5-1

intothemild commented on 2019-12-27 17:11

This hits a 404 when trying to download the package, i updated the url and sha256 to what's below



I also updated the version to 1.1.3, and ran makepkg

this worked for me... I think that either the src.rpm should be commited to git, or the link gets updated regularly, it seems like it's on a CDN which isn't stable.
