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

@artemklevtsov, sorry, I'm not familiar with submission process. Also according to the ArchWiki, it would be against AUR submission rules if I understand this correctly (, second rule).

@yaworski, can you upload your code as foo2zjs package to AUR?

If anyone is using my fork, I've removed fix_20200505 branch, just use master branch. It also contains a fix for an issue reported by jose1711 on github, regarding build failing on some locales.

The issue is with one of the patches. I've forked the repo and fixed it:, fixed version is on branch fix_20200505

You're free to use it if you want

Same problem :

An alternative is to use hplip (pacman)

  • Download files : and (

  • Launch sudo hp-plugin (Specify a path to the plug-in (advanced) : enter the path to downloaded files)

  • I received the error Unable to recieve key from keyserver but I said still want to install the plug-in

Thanks to the maintainer, @intelfx.

Below is the complete set of commands which worked for my HP LaserJet 1020:

pacman -S cups cups-pdf
cd ~/git
git clone
cd foo2zjs-nightly/
makepkg -si
sudo usermod -a -G lp sergei # said by foo2zjs-nightly
sudo usermod -a -G wheel sergei # needed to be able to administer cups, see /etc/cups/cups-files.conf, administrator user groups are sys wheel root
sudo systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd.socket
firefox http://localhost:631/
# enter your linux login and password
# Administration - Add Printer - Continue - Continue - Select the printer model - Set Default Options - Add Printer
# Printers - you should see your added printer here
# Now the printer is ready to print

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)
