There is a new version 9.1.0! Can the version be bumped? I tried the old source-URL and received a 404. I replaced the date-stamp with 20220203 and it worked. lists the new publish-date at the top option.

For Kyocera M5521cdw the additional package python-pypdf3 is still missing in the dependencies. It's quite hard to find out that this package is the missing part to get the printers working. I think it would make sense to not only setting it as optional dependency.

There is a missing dependency, I think: python-pyPDF3 is needed by some processing steps required by some printers

Newer printers does work with this driver, for example the Kyocera P5026CDN. Older printers like Kyocera FS-6525MFP will not work properly, unless if you're lucky enough. Keep in mind: this is Kyocera's fault for not updating their packages to linux. I already told the company about this problem but they ignored my mail.

For me the build fails (on '5.8.18-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Nov 1 14:10:04 UTC 2020 x86_64 GNU/Linux') with

Edit: Actually I was able to fix it by manually changing the source file in my case to the italian location:

Changes required for 5.0:

  • Downloaded zip contains tar.gz at top level
  • /usr/share/kyocera → /usr/share/kyocera5
  • kyodialog4 → kyodialog5
  • […]_E → […]_F

Ah now I found a solution, added DLAGENTS to use wget instead of curl now it builds as expected.

OK, I can add the lib32 stuff. I don't know how to solve the 403 error. I guess I am not allowed to host the file myself. Any ideas?

This package is broken in different ways:

  • makepkg can't download the drivers from - error 403 forbidden. Downloading via Firefox works as intended.

  • the driver needs lib32-zlib to work, otherwise cups logs this error: "D [26/Feb/2018:11:57:45 +0100] [Job 7] Kyocera-FS-2100DN-KPDL: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

  • the driver needs lib32-libcups to work, otherwise cups logs this error: "D [26/Feb/2018:12:26:01 +0100] [Job 14] Kyocera-FS-2100DN-KPDL: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Both errors result in a "Filter Failed" message, caused by filter "/usr/lib/cups/filter/kyofilter_E".
