both a fresh install, and a formerly working driver are giving the same issue.
cups is version 2.3.3op1
OS is manjaro kde 20.2.

After some more digging, it seems that the problem is issue 64. Looks like your patch isn't actually doing anything. The ppd files at both
are unchanged with the error on line 576. Manually correcting the file at /usr/share... fixes the issue. The file at /opt/brother... seems to not affect cups, but I corrected it anyway.

Not sure why the patch isn't working, since I don't know how makepkg works.
But it looks like on installation, the patch file is simply copied to /opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6910dw/0001-cups-segfault-orphan-CloseUI.patch as opposed to actually being applied.

Are these first time installs or did my patch break a formerly working driver? See #64 #65 #66.

I am also having the same problem. Only, the web-ui does not give an error. cups silently crashes. first error in journalctl is
kernel: cupsd[582]: segfault at 2a ip 00007f3f010b8cf9 sp 00007fffc0c040c8 error 4 in[7f3f0108c000+55000]

followed by the same messages shown by olib.

Process 582 (cupsd) of user 0 dumped core.

if I try to install my Brother MFC-6910DW printer with this driver and CUPS 2.3.3op1-1 the "Add printer..." UI gives me a "Failed to add new printer" message dialog. I use "Manjaro Gnome 20.2".

In the logs I can see these messages:

Process 3126 (cupsd) of user 0 dumped core.
Stack trace of thread 3126:
#0  0x00007f44e43fccf9 _cups_strcasecmp ( + 0x4bcf9)
#1  0x00007f44e440a623 _ppdOpen ( + 0x59623)
#2  0x0000562313a70d51 n/a (/usr/bin/cupsd + 0x32d51)

Do you have any idea how to fix this?

Thanks for help!

It's in the AUR archive and you have it. You probably have it working so go ahead and add it.

Anyone know where the brother-mfc-j6920dw package went? I have it installed locally on my laptop, but I can't find it in AUR anymore.

Updated. Package should be named brother-mfc-j6910dw 3.0.0-1, not -2.

Can you update to the latest 3.0.0-1 build. Below are the latest deb links. Also included the link to the raw source code which now available as well as an alternate, hopefully easier build. Thanks so much!

This is a modification of anotherZero's package ( to accommodate the MFC-J6910DW. Enjoy.
