Brother dcp7030 printer - does not print

i have installed this printer via cups - system has found the printer - keeps giving the notification that the printer is idle – printer is connected via usb and is on – tried to install the printerdriver via aur - however this gives an error :
→ cupswrapperDCP7030-2.0.2-1.i386.deb uitpakken met bsdtar
→ brdcp7030lpr-2.0.2-1.i386.deb uitpakken met bsdtar
==> Bestaande $pkgdir/ map verwijderen…
==> Bezig met het uitvoeren van build()…
/var/tmp/pamac-build-vivianet/brother-dcp7030/PKGBUILD: regel 38: patch: opdracht niet gevonden
==> FOUT: Er is een fout opgetreden in build().
cups shows the printer (however with driver for dcp7025)

I don’t know what language that is, but I see something about patch, so I assume you are missing required packages for building from AUR, so install base-devel and try again.

Sorry I can’t offer any help regarding your other problem.

fyi language is dutch - thank you that did the trick

Is base-devel and git installed? if not run

sudo pacman -Syu base-devel git

and try again.

If you wish english output of your commands just put


in front of the command.

yes installing base-devel i the trick - thank you - weird that base-devel was not installed by default in manjaro
