@andmars Yes I'm on Arch (mostly, was Antergos but switched most packages to Arch). I've built many packages via Pamac so I must have the base-devel. I was trying to install via Pamac from AUR.

@Gotit: I presume you are on Arch Linux and have base-devel group installed? How did you build the package? The snapshot with "makepkg -si" or any AUR-helpers?

The HPLIP website has contact info for developers only. Lacking a better way, I did contact them there, and was redirected to Launchpad.

My bug report is:

On other news, I suggest this as the bugs URL:

@andmars Thank you for your answer.

However, you can see that the current hplip version in extra is 3.20.9-2 :

and the last update of hplip-plugin is 3.20.9-3

@kuluse: That is indeed strange since I ONLY update hplip-plugin when there is a new version of hplip in [extra] (see my pinned comment). What servers do you use in your /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist? Maybe you are on an outdated server? Maybe:

Hello, thank you for maintaining this package !

I have a question thought : since hplip-plugin needs to match the exact version number of hplip in order to work properly, why don't wait the new version of hplip comes in extra before updating hplip-plugin on aur ?

I mean everytime I update hplip-plugin I can't print until there is an update of hplip (some weeks !).

It was very anoying because I didn't know what the problem was but now I know that's ok, I don't update hplip-plugin if hplip is not updated.

Sorry for the naive question but I'm really wondering (no offense at all !)

@argymeg, it might be, but I don't know. It might be that something in the hplip-plugin blob ought to be fixed to better match hplip. Maybe that fix works for the networked model but would break the not networked one?

Although, to be honest, I can't find instructions on how to report bugs in the URL provided by the hplip package, either.
