I have Manjaro 20.2 running cinnamon and trying to install the printer Pantum P2502W. I downloaded the driver from the website at https:// global.pantum .com/global/drive/p2502w/ (sorry, forum rules won’t let me post links). I was not able to ran the installer without issue. I was unable to print. I tried adding a new printer with Print Settings by extracting the PPD file from the driver. I am still unable to print. Now Print Settings errors with “Print service not available. Start the service on this computer or connect to another server.” Clicking on the “Start Service” button does nothing. Manage Printing (localhost:631) is unable to connect. The printer and driver work as expected on Windows 10. However, I need to get this printer to work with Manjaro. Any tips? Thank!
pantum-p2200-p2500-driver in the AUR.
I downloaded this file https:// aur.archlinux .org/packages/pantum-p2200-p2500-driver/ (remove white spaces). This installer behaved similar as the one downloaded from the pantum website.
sudo ./install.sh ./install.sh: line 8: cd: too many arguments 64bit system en_US.UTF-8 Cannot run program dpkg: No such file or directory system return 32512 delete event occurred
If you insist on using their install.sh, based on that error you got, then install
pamac install dpkg
and run the installer again.
I don’t insist on using it. As previously mentioned, I retrieved the PPD file from the driver download and still could not get the printer to work.
That won’t work as
dpkg will try and install Debian packages Manjaro does not have.
Do what now? Use:
pamac install pantum-p2200-p2500-driver
I looked through the file downloaded from aur.archlinux and could not locate
pantum-p2200-p2500-driver in it. Consequently pamac install failed. Do you have more info on this? From within the
LinuxInstall directory I ran the following command:
pamac install pantom-p2200-p2500-driver Error: target not found: pantom-p2200-p2500-driver
Please read this first, you’ve missed a step:
You’re right. I overlooked that. Thanks Yochanan!
