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.

@tristelune Sorry for the delay .. i confirm that the turboprint monitor launch but don't work properly.....

you need to create the following file and enable services below

For systemd you need to create a service file,
Create /etc/systemd/system/tprintdaemon.service with the following information




Then just install/start the above service file using:
sudo systemctl enable tprintdaemon.service
sudo systemctl start tprintdaemon.service

After that the monitor works (ink levels, queue,etc)

Update to version 2.40.

@rrkadio:do you still have the problem ? If yes, when exactly ? I tried to start turboprint and I had no problem.

rrkradio commented on 2016-09-29 21:58

There is a new release 2.40-1

The problem related to "turboPrint daemon not started" is still present in your 2.39-1. The workaround [create a service as explained by whompus (2012-12-19 21:16)] works like a charm.
