Epson printer driver download page seems to be broken quite a while now :'(

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2018-12-06 16:02

Thanks @uwe, that fix worked on my machine, updated the PKGBUILD @lukas.fink1 your fix seemed to not work for me, same error like before

uwe commented on 2018-12-06 10:31

It does not work for me. I had to add one line in "build" section after "cd":

autoreconf -f -i

Got it from here:

lukas.fink1 commented on 2018-11-27 18:47

What worked for me was changing the build function to this:

build() {
  cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"

  ./configure --prefix=/usr \
              --with-cupsfilterdir=/usr/lib/cups/filter \

(I don’t know how to do newlines here so: This seems to rebuild aclocal.m4 and configure with the installed version of the GNU Build System.

I am getting an exception when building the new version (1.0.27) of this package, saying "'automake-1.15' is missing on your system". The automake in the Arch repos is 1.16.1 - I assume thats the problem? If someone else has the problem and knows how to fix it, I can update the PKGBUILD

pontiaj2066 commented on 2018-10-21 18:21

Looks like it's broken again. Along with the first one
