I also created the AUR scangearmp2-sane-git which uses the github repository below. It includes a slightly upgraded GUI for scangearmp2, but more importantly provides a sane driver.

Thanks @tit1970, updated. How do you find the new versions? If I just check my own printer it still links to an old version.

@burster I have now updated it because it seems to both work. What build system are you using? The old path works with both yay and makepkg.I would still recommendend to switch to scangearmp2-sane-git as it is the same as this package, but with some improvements (like being able to use any linux compatible scan program as it ships a SANE compatible driver as well).

Sorry for late reply. Of course it was a clean build 'cause I ran into trouble. The problem is the path to the libusb patch. Since we're are already in the directory where the patch is we can't find him in parent directory. See:

@burster Did you try to clean build (assuming you use yay)? Otherwise, how did you try to install? I just verified on a clean system, and both yay and makepkg work fine?

Also, consider trying out scangearmp2-sane-git, it has both an improved dedicate UI, and integrates with existing linux scan tools.

Hello. Patching failed because wrong path in line 25: 'patch -p1 < ../libusb.patch'. You need to remove ../

@jdetwiler Sorry, made a mistake with packaging. It works fine now (select the option to clean build the package)
