My Brother printer/scanner MFC-L8650CDW is working like a charm from years, using the package build from here.
I’m now installing a new laptop (Lenovo P1 gen3) with Manjaro/Plasma and trying to build the same package, I got the following error :
Lancement de build()… /var/tmp/pamac-build-diego/deb2targz/PKGBUILD: ligne 19: patch : commande introuvable ==> ERREUR : Une erreur s’est produite dans build(). Abandon…
So I tried to build the package on another machine, and everything’s ok …
Any suggestion ?
According to the project’s AUR page it has been flanked as out-of-date since Nov. 2021 already.
And according to the comments, there is a new driver.
So bottom line, I think look for another way of installing the drivers…
Yep, but I can build it on another PC (same system) …
And I didn’t find any other way to install the drivers :_(
Also a Manjaro PC? If so,
Then you can always ask help on the AUR page? I don’t know if this is the correct way if doing things, but it is a possibillity.
You can try using IPP Everywhere…
cups-pdf is installed and running
Set the printer to a fixed IP Address, either by manually giving the printer a fixed IP address or by reserving the IP Address in your router.
Then from the command line run:
lpadmin -p MFC-L8650CDW -E -v "ipp://184.108.40.206/ipp/BINARY_P1" -m everywhere
Note: change the IP Address to the correct one you are using.
You’re missing the
base-devel meta package required for using the AUR. See Arch User Repository - Manjaro
I just updated the package. Try installing it again.
I disowned it after fixing it, so feel free to adopt it.
Thanks so much @Yochanan ! Build went through now.
At this point, driver looks ok, printer is identified, but when i send a print job, i get a " “The printer is unreachable at this time.”.
Probably some closed port somewhere …
