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.

Suppose you could remove this line nowdays:
install -D -m755 "${srcdir}/tprintdaemon" "${pkgdir}/etc/rc.d/tprintdaemon"

jcci commented on 2013-02-25 06:29

TurboPrint 2.29-1 is out and includes the driver I need.

I have the same problem like Aerion! The md5sums is wrong.

Aerion commented on 2013-01-29 14:26

The md5sum fails on turboprint-2.28-1.x86_64.tgz

Updated and added service file.

whompus commented on 2012-12-19 21:16

For systemd you need to create a service file, got this info from a german site

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

Teyro commented on 2012-12-19 19:45

Since i reinstalled my system with systemd the turboprint status monitor doenst work for me! I cant wath the status of my inc...

net147 commented on 2012-09-15 07:09

Updated and fixed.

matse commented on 2012-06-14 13:28

Another thing that I realized is that you get an error if you remove turboprint and don't have "/usr/bin/kbuildsycoca4" (from kdelibs) installed. Then pacman says (after pacman -Rsc turboprint):
"error: command failed to execute correctly". As I said it's because of this line in your post install funcion
[ -x /usr/bin/kbuildsycoca4 ] && /usr/bin/kbuildsycoca4 &>/dev/null

Since kdelibs are just an optdepend of turboprint you can maybe update it that it executes this line just if "kbuildsycoca4" exists with something like
test -x $(type -p kbuildsycoca4

matse commented on 2012-03-27 15:03

Thanks! Great work!

matse commented on 2012-02-16 12:24

Package works nice, thanks for your work! I have just some additions to make with which I had to cope to get my printer running:
You don't seem to run the "install-post" script during the installation. I gues this script makes some essential changes (some are probably unneccesary on arch) like setting the suid bit vor "/usr/share/turboprint/lib/pipeutility". "pipeutility" creates an user folder in "/var/spool/turboprint/USERNAME", which is neccessary in order to be able to use some featuers like "manual duplex printing".
Another thing is that normally "turboprint-monitor" should be started with the user login, a script which creates the neccesary .desktop files is "/usr/lib/turboprint/95turboprint_monitor", so turboprint-monitor is started in the background as soon as the user logs into a DE.

So to summarize my proposals: Change you PKGBUILD so that "/usr/share/turboprint/lib/pipeutility" permissions become "4755" and write a notice that every user that wants to use turboprint should execute that pipeutility as well as executing "/usr/lib/turboprint/95turboprint_monitor".

turboprint-2.22-2 is out... please update

JohnDVD commented on 2011-11-09 11:00

Can anyone bring turboprint 1.96.* back to work? cups seems to be downgraded. I wasn't successful with cups and libcups 1.4.8

Buying a new license sucks!

Kompilator commented on 2011-08-11 14:30

Since version 2.20 I can't select the print previev function in tpmonitor as normal user. As root the print preview works for me.

net147 commented on 2011-07-10 02:54

matse: Thanks for the feedback. I haven't used turboprint with a supported printer in several years so I can't actually verify that everything works properly myself. Feedback from actual users of this package is the only way for me to tell if all is working as it should.

matse commented on 2011-07-08 00:22

Thanks for the package, works flawlessly!

dbrgn commented on 2011-05-16 13:54

In case someone also has problems configuring the printer, this might help (german):

Updated to turboprint 2.18-2 and fixed installation of some components.

oliwer commented on 2011-03-25 21:44

turboprint 2.18-2 is out. libpng12 is no longer needed, and my printer refused to work unless i copy /usr/share/turboprint/lib/pstoturboprint to /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoturboprint

net147 commented on 2011-02-11 08:46

Updated to turboprint 2.18-1.

Harey commented on 2011-02-11 08:35

2.18-1 is out

net147 commented on 2010-12-31 12:10

there is no xtpsetup. apparently the graphical user interface can be accessed by running the turboprint executable.

erpl commented on 2010-12-31 12:03

Hi net147,

thank you very much for that package. Just a few questions: Am I mistaken or is there no xtpsetup in this build? Do I have to istall another package? Many thx in advance and keep up the good work!
