Also, as I don't own the hardware anymore and lack spare time to work on this package, I'm looking for (co-)maintainers.

foo2zjs, when paired with Ghostscript9 as present in Archlinux, has a nasty color printing bug. The foo2zjs author is aware of it but hasn't, so far, appeared to fully describe the bug, report it upstream, or implement a fix/workaround in his software.
Instead, what he recommends is to install Ghostscript8 as /usr/bin/,3189

What's supposed to be the bug with ghostscript 9? i just installed foo2zjs for an hp 2600n and the test page looks ok (not great, but not "nasty" either)

thanks @intelfx. you're a life saver for me. But for your (this package), I would have been forced to change distribution that offers solution to my HP1020+ printer (I have 3 Nos in my SOHO). HPLIP toolkit never worked for me and I missed this package greatly. Many thanks to you, sir!

I confirm: foo2zjs is back driving my lj1000 as normal operation.

@intelfix: Thank You :o))

I have a CP1020nw I could help with this.

I rewrote the udev rule to run firmware loader directly, working around SYSTEMD_WANTS flakiness.

I do not have relevant hardware to test changes, and I could have gotten the syntax wrong — please test and report with udev logs if it does not work.

Sorry for my inaction — I somewhy had the notifications turned off for this package. Package bumped. I'm working on the firmware loading problem now.

i managed to get it to build modifying patch 0004

This has not been tested yet. i tried to follow the reason behind the original patch. maybe someone can check it. Of course you need to change its integrity checksum in the PKGBUILD.

  1. applebloom, who commented on 2018-09-30 18:40: Were you able to get over that?

  2. JohnML, who commented on 2018-09-23 09:39: Can you upload the output of makepkg you attached, the Package broken stuff, to any, for example ptpb, pastebin like site? I hope it will be clearer there. Do note that asking that doesn't necessarily mean I would be able to help.

foo2zjs-20180920.tar.gz has a different checksum (bdd5dd1b128c1b0df714ea3a64d808ef951bcbe58a0aae5c6ee14360f1f68f56) than in PKGBUILD (downloaded a few times with the same sum, so it's probably not a broken download).
