@radar_wiekszy: Interesting! It seems that rastertospl has indeed hardcoded paths:

$ strings /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertospl | grep /opt

What does the samsung provided package install in that folder?

My scx-3405w also printed black pages, and rastertospl also crashed with similar error message. Installation from Samsung-provided packages solved the problem, but then I moved rastertospl around a bit, and apparently it crashes when placed in /usr/lib/cups/filter, but if it's a symlink pointing to /opt/smfp-common/printer/bin/rastertospl - no crashes. Same file. Hardcoded paths, maybe?

rastertospl was crashing on a free function (free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x0000000002286d80) + ML-2160 printer printed fully black sheets.

Surprisingly installing the driver from the vendor-provided tar (not a newer version), without making an Arch package resulted in a working installation. Strange.

@christoph.gysin I found out it installs well with yaourt, but fails with the help of packer.

@Moo-Crumpus: I can't reproduce this. Also, I'm not sure what the error message means. Could you reproduce this with non-translated error messages? Try running it with LC_ALL=C pacman ...

Does not work.

@mmozeiko: Done, sorry about that. pkgrel update got lost during git rebase.

mmozeiko commented on 2017-02-08 20:20

Can you please increase pkgrel number? So we automatically get newer package version after your changes to PKGBUILD.

christoph.gysin commented on 2017-01-24 19:54

Thanks, the OEM_FILE should now get installed as well.

I can confirm what nicoulaj said, I had to add the following lines in the PKGBUILD to make scanimage detect my M2070 :

mkdir -p "$pkgdir"/opt/samsung/scanner/share/
cp $OEM_FILE "$pkgdir"/opt/samsung/scanner/share/
