Just an update: I will update the package, but I ran into some issues and time constraints. Also upstream does not seem to make separate source releases available anymore, so the package will be built directly from git.

@satriani: The usermod definitely not, that is modifying the user doing the packaging or install, depending where you place it. That's not the business of the package installation to decide which user goes into which group.

Creating the printer might be a little bit different, but given Arch packages in general let the user control the installation I don't like this idea either. The install script already outputs messages about both those things and the users can take action if they want to use the fax printer.

I have a few suggestions for you. Please add the following commands into PKGBUILD

usermod -a -G lp $USER
lpadmin -p "Roger-Fax" -E -v roger-cups:/ -P /usr/share/cups/model/roger-fax.ppd

@sgar: There is already a comment about lp group. Is fax group needed, too? Have to check.

sgar commented on 2017-09-19 14:24

would be nice to add a comment "add user to groups 'fax' and 'lp' and create those groups if they dont exist.."

@mozon: See the comment by TNC; they changed the download URL. Will update the package soon

Installation is not possible.

Any suggestions ?

Important notes:

  • If you have libsecret installed it is recommended that you also install a compatible keyring application such as gnome-keyring. As an alternative you can use Roger Router's built-in "Simple password" storage, which can be configured in the settings under Advanced -> Security.

  • To use the printer follow the post install messages, basically run:

    lpadmin -p "Roger-Router-Fax" -E -v roger-cups:/ -P /usr/share/cups/model/roger-fax.ppd
    gpasswd --add [username] lp
  • If you build roger-router inside a chroot environment and want to make sure you build it with support for all optional dependencies edit the PKGBUILD and uncomment the makedepends line with all build dependencies added.

@phw, thank you for your quick answer. I haven't noticed the configurable password option. Seems like it is simply an upstream bug that "GNOME Keyring" is selected by default (even though it is not always installed) and the wizard fails without an informative error message or the option to use "Simple password" instead.
