the string being a array is still a thing.

Hi xdever, could you please add this "printf_msg.patch"

Build manually. Maintainer really should fix that printf(msg)...

Refuses to compile for me. Gives following error: min12xxw.c: In function ‘printav’: min12xxw.c:728:2: error: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Werror=format-security] 728 | n = printf(msg);

Any workaround?

In case anybody in 2021 is still interested in these old printers, which run perfectly with linux, might appreciate this comment: You need ghostscript to print, otherwise you get Filter failed.

Just tried installing - error says the url should not be an array. I changed it manually to a String, now it works. Maybe this should be changed.
