Hey, I've adopted this package and applied some of the suggestions:

  • Add missing dependencies, notably libusb-compat and sane (cred @ZhandHua).
  • Depend on exact version of hplip (cred @jsn42).

In addition, the PGP-signature of the artifact is now checked, which means you need to fetch upstream's key:

gpg --keyserver hkps:// --recv-keys 4ABA2F66DBD5A95894910E0673D770CDA59047B9

Unfortunately, I have no HP printer at home so my testing ability is limited to running hp-diagnose_plugin. If someone has better opportunity to test and is interested in maintaining, let me know and I'll handover the package or add you as a co-maintainer. Cheers!

@john999 I fixed the problem by downloading the current snapshot and building the package by myself (makepkg).

@MystikReasons: Reading through the older comments would tell you both that pamac famously doesn't like this package, and that this is not the place to ask for help with it:

@DanielH that is almost certainly an issue with your GPG (and/or DNS configuration), and not with the instructions in this package. If you Google your error message, there are several discussions about similar issues on the Arch forums.

@DanielH Please import the PGP-key as the pinned comment suggests.
