Installing the package doesn't automatically install desktop widgets. Running /usr/share/turboprint/lib/install-post as root installs the widget, but I'm not sure if this is safe. For example, this script copies an init script to /etc/init.d (a file, not a directory.)

Important note: before upgrading to this package, make sure any AUR helper you use does save earlier versions in /var/cache/pacman/pkg. Otherwise, if the period covered by your license key for upgrades has expired, this package will not work. In which case you may find earlier versions of turboprint here:

The listed version 2.47.1-1 is no longer available for download. The currently available version is turboprint-2.48-2.x86_64.tgz

Until the package is updated, edit the PKGBUILD during install and change

pkgver to 2.48.2

md5sum for x86_64 = 1e10ba5d88c2754b264027a0a2207d64

sha256sum for x86_64 = 76c8e4e4b02f37da09c7711226b978b64aa6f7a9b4280a9a42e9e6da69a658e8

I won't maintain this package anymore, a new maintainer can take it. Regards.

If you encounter the

"curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading"

error, do the following, until this package is updated:

During installation say 'yes' to editing the PKGBUILD file.


That works for me.

This isn't working for me right now. I'm getting the following error message:

==> Retrieving sources...

I notice that manually clicking that link on this web page also 404s.

Hi, thank you for the patch. My license is not valid anymore and I won't probably use turboprint anymore. I can update the package, but somebody has to test it. Do you have a license ? Could you test the package ?

Hi rrkadio, I had a look at the file tprintdaemon.service. The file is included in the package. What you want is that the service is enabled after the installation of the package, right ?

Thank you for your answer. I also answer very late. I'll have a look in about one week. At the moment I can't because I have a lot of work. Thank you for the information, I'll be able to solve the problem faster.
