A working PKGBUILD I have put there:

And a patch to the current PKGBUILD:

Depends on the package foomatic-filters, however, there is no such package (and aur/foomatic-filters-lprng does not provide foomatic-filters, and even if it would, it would be no feasible option, since it conflicts with cups).

On 2017-08-23 @donChristophe already pointed out that the dependency on foomatic-filters can be replaced with cups-filters. However, the PKGBUILD was not updated since then.

So, I flag this package out of date.

It is possible to edit the PKGBUILD file to replace the foomatic-filters dependency by cups-filters. Compilation and installation takes place without problem, and the driver is usable again.

cups-filters does no longer contain foomatic-filters. pnm2ppa can't be installed.

My trusty 722C is still working after 17 years of service but I decided to update to a newer printer. Since I no longer use this package I am orphaning it.
