@sgerwk you either need to install texlive from AUR too, create a symlink from /usr/share/texmf to /usr/share/texmf-dist, or add a patch to this package so that it also looks within the texmf-dist package.

The file is the same (at most a different older/newer version), the texmf-dist folder exists to allow side by side installs of texlive-basic and other texlive packages from AUR as far as I'm aware.

Thanks, works (almost) fine now.

I have the hyphenation file in /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/hyphen/hyphen.tex that is, with texmf-dist instead of texmf. I don't know if this is something specific with the way I installed archlinux.

Does not work for me - I get this error:

Unimplemented: POSIX::tmpnam(): use File::Temp instead at /usr/bin/html2ps line 498.

Fixed as suggested:
