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.

Thanks for sorting this out - much appreciated!

Updated. I had to recreate the diff file because there were changes to all the different languages' man Makefiles that had to be included. I hope it works now.

Just tried this, think there is a bit of a bug somewhere ...

The build almost gets to the end, then fails on the man page generation:

sed -e 's,##DOCDIR##,/usr/share/doc/muttprint,g' -e 's,##SHAREDIR##,/usr/share,g' -e 's,##BINDIR##,/usr/bin,g' -e 's,##SYSCONFDIR##,/usr/etc,g' -e 's,##TEMPDIR##,/tmp,g' -e 's,##LIBDIR##,/usr/lib,g' ./muttprint.pod > muttprint
pod2man --center="Muttprint Kurzanleitung" muttprint muttprint.1
muttprint around line 3: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in 'schöner'. Assuming ISO8859-1
POD document had syntax errors at /usr/bin/core_perl/pod2man line 71.

The following page seems to indicate at least someone knows about the bug:

I tried to edit the PKGBUILD and change the patch file version to 0.73_4 (and the associated hash so it verified), unfortunately although I can now see the "--utf-8" argument being passed to the pod2man command, it still fails with the same error.

Seems like the =encoding is in the wrong place in the man page file?
