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://keyserver.ubuntu.com --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!

@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: https://terms.archlinux.org/docs/code-of-conduct/#Arch_Linux_distribution_support_ONLY

Getting the following error while building with the newest version: /var/tmp/pamac-build-jens/hplip-plugin/PKGBUILD: line 39: cd: /var/tmp/pamac-build-jens/hplip-plugin/src/hplip-3.23.12-plugin: File or directory not found. According to pacman, my version of hplip is 3.23.12-1 which is the newest one for me (stable on Manjaro, https://packages.manjaro.org/?query=hplip).

@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.

:: (1/1) Parsing SRCINFO: hplip-plugin gpg: error reading key: No public key

:: PGP keys need importing: -> 4ABA2F66DBD5A95894910E0673D770CDA59047B9, required by: hplip-plugin :: Import? [Y/n] :: Importing keys with gpg... gpg: WARNING: DNS is not properly configured gpg: keyserver receive failed: No such file or directory -> problem importing keys [daniel@hardwork ~]$

@argymeg, Ah I see, thanks the explanation. My bad for not reading the comments thoroughly enough. Reverted in 3.23.12-3.

@carsme, thank you sincerely for taking on this package, but please, consider rolling back your second change. This keeps coming back every year or so - as @Anty0 responded when @jsn42 suggested this, and as I responded when another user suggested it previously, this has been tried before and needed to be reverted as this breaks upgrades of hplip, requiring the user to remove hplip-plugin, upgrade hplip, then re-install hplip-plugin. Certainly a more disruptive problem than the one this aims to solve.

I have a HP Laserjet Pro MFP M148fdw printer that requires the hplip plugin. It prints and scans like a charm with hplip-plugin 3.23.12-2. I can only test the released plugin, have no time to work on it.
