No clue I got an error during build and had to remove the url in the xml (shouldn't be a problem I guess).

pkgdesc='P-Touch PT-series and QL-series printer driver for Linux (under CUPS)'
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

makedepends=('autoconf' 'libcups' 'foomatic-db-engine')


build() {
    cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"

    autoreconf --force
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    sed -i '/<url>/d' printer/Brother-QL-600.xml

package() {
    cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"

    make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install

    # Compile and remove foomatic database
    mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/ppd/"
    echo "dummy dummy" > "$pkgdir/usr/share/foomatic/db/oldprinterids"
    FOOMATICDB="$pkgdir/usr/share/foomatic" foomatic-compiledb -t ppd -d "$pkgdir/usr/share/ppd/Brother/"
    rm -r "$pkgdir/usr/share/foomatic/"

@blackout: Ah thanks, fixed. At first I had build it with a different download url and forgot to remove the temporary downloaded artifact after changing the url.

won't build you have to use these lines

sha256sums=('ee1b53cf89b63a065683456a58ba20c28c5d4c966c4ff8e0883601dbf35caa82') cd "$srcdir/printer-driver-ptouch-$pkgver"

@x3a: Thanks for the message. I did not notice that there is a new version.

My patch was from a time where the repo was on bitbucket and the development was slowed down. I bumped the version and submitted my changes as a pull request.

This build fails during the make process while the current state of the projects git repository (7b13070b64f87bb432f84cc7d4826a126d2e8bc2) can be build properly. Why do you patch in functionality for the PT-2430PC during the package building instead of contributing your changes directly to the git repository?

the download of the driver package fails (repo deleted by developer).
