@HamishTPB Have you openend a bug report upstream? I'm reluctant to patch in perpetuity...

There seems to be a typo in the default settings file /etc/Muttprintrc


should be


If you do not override the system-wide config with your own then this will bring up the error:

Press any key to write error: Broken pipe

The uppercase "P" is listed as paper size in the man page where lowercase "p" is the printer name.

I had the same issue. I was able to debug the problem a bit without involving mutt, by doing just "cat file | muttprint". This returned the following error:
lpr: The printer or class does not exist.

Which seems odd since the lpq command knows the printer, it returns:
"hpc_5180 is ready". And echo $PRINTER returns: "hpc_5180"

Anyway I was able to (mutt)print successfully by adding the following to my muttrc file:
set print_command="muttprint -P A4 -p $PRINTER"

(It seems that it should also be possible to set the printer via a muttprintrc file. See the muttprint manual page.)

@dtbaumann - thanks: added your patch

Hi, it seems that the settings for duplex printing are mixed up. For papersave mode (two pages on one landscape sheet) the binding is short edge and vice versa.

Please change url=( -> url=

makepkg is failing with error "url should not be an array."

@grudziar, I don't have the reference ready, but somewhere there are AUR guidelines saying that packages of the base-devel group can be presumed available on every AUR'ing computer and need not be specified in the depends...

I had to manually install automake and autoconf on my machine. Apparently, they are not listed as dependencies, and without aclocal and autom4te build fails.
