The following error displayed by epson-printer-utility can be safely ignored. I don't know what is the cause, but is doesn't affect usability: Unable to load library icui18n "Cannot load library icui18n: (icui18n: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)"

If you get the error Communication daemon down, Error code = -1, you have to start the ecbd service. You can either do that with sudo systemctl enable --now ecbd.service if you want the serice to run at system startup or with sudo systemctl start ecbd.service if you only want to start the service manually each time you use epson-printer-utility

This worked: source=("${pkgname}_${pkgver}-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb"

@thibaultmol the package does have a post_install/post_upgrade hook already that contains this information

thibaultmol commented on 2020-05-22 18:23

@lgm fair enough, maybe including it as an echo would be helpful though:

@thibaultmol, I can't do that. It would be pretty invasive to just enable a service with root rights during the install. The info through the post-install method is the best I can do. I'm sorry.

@lgm could you add the line to enable the deamon to the pckgbuild?

sudo systemctl enable --now ecbd.service

Thank you! I wasn't aware that this package needs a daemon, as I don't own an Epson printer myself. I'll pass on the solution. Thx again!

Hi mielouk. I cannot say anything about the icui18n error. I have installed icu and lib32-icu. And do not see it

About the Communication daemon down, Error code = -1, did you sudo systemctl enable --now ecbd.service? I can reproduce this error only when I stop this service.

Hello I'm a supporter in the Manjaro forum and had recently two identical reports on this package. Both these members use KDE so I installed it on my XFCE Manjaro laptop and can reproduce the error.

Unable to load library icui18n "Cannot load library icui18n: (icui18n: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)" 
Communication daemon down, Error code = -1

When I install it on my Arch machine I get also an error but only

Communication daemon down, Error code = -1

icu is installed and the machines are up to date. Could you provide some insight?
