Due to the major printing issues caused by new binary blob libImageProcessor.so in 3.18.7, both hplip and hplip-plugin were downgraded to 3.18.6.

Yes. Please add "epoch=1" to the PKGBUILD, then I will remove my patched hplip AUR package.

@andmars Thanks, but downgrading is not the best of options. Consider that there are people who already compiled and installed the package and now won't get the update.

It probably would have been better to change the version to the same of hplip (1:3.18.6-1) to make sure that the update is distributed to everyone

Manjaro is a supported distro. Test on that.

I have added a patched version of hplip on the AUR (and will make the binary available in archlinuxcn). This solves the current "Filter failed" issue by removing use of the new libImageProcessor which was conflicting with this plugin. I filed an upstream bug, but doesn't look like they will take it seriously because Arch Linux is not supported and they think it works on supported distros.

Here's the working patched version on AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/hplip-reverted-imageprocessor/

This AUR package just provides a PKGBUILD with links to the sources, including the patch that fixes it from @loqs in comments to the Arch linux bug: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/59548#comment172098

Thanks @andmars. I was planning to post in the forum, but I was trying to find some information about the bug first. But since you have posted already, I'll just wait for the next version. For now, I've downgraded to the 3.18.6 hplip version and installed the openprinting.org driver manually.

@gerson: same here and opened a topic in the forum. Maybe you can post your /var/log/cups/error_log here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1801074#p1801074

And there is already a bug-report for hplip 3.18.7

gerson commented on 2018-08-06 22:10

Added the 3.18.7 editing the PKGBUILD manually. Scan is working, but I'm not able to print. So far I have no clue of what's wrong here. If anyone else faces trouble, please let us know.

I've always used the openprinting.org plugin. This is my first time using the developers.hp.com plugin. Could this "official" plugin be broken?

There is no 3.18.6 plugin download available (yet?) at http://www.openprinting.org, but I did find it here: https://developers.hp.com/sites/default/files/hplip-3.18.6-plugin.run (md5 c86f38efb36a33493e9565af0d321c9f).

@entodoays: www.openprinting.org hasn't updated hplip-plugin, yet, hence it's still 3.18.5.
