Makes sense. I didn't understand this error was from Git, fixed now :)

Looks like yay downloads sources to the folder with PKGBUILD. That's why when agree.html became a versioned file, Git refused to check it out over already present unversioned copy. Victoria, Julien, can we see a listing of your directories with brscan4 PKGBUILD? I bet we'll see rpms there too.

So why don't you just overwrite the file agree.html? BTW, yay is not an official tool. I tested with makepkg which is the arch way and this worked for me.

I have the same issue when updating the package:

@vstuart: I don't get the sense of your message, sorry ;) I tested pure 'makepkg -cfsi' and it works without quirks. Could you please tell us a little more?

error merging brscan4: error: The following untracked working tree files would be overwritten by merge:

Start update (e.g., yay -Syu), and at appropriate prompt (brscan4 update) choose to view the differences (diff), to get your path to agree.html:

  diff --git /home/victoria/.cache/yay/brscan4/agree.html /home/victoria/.cache/yay/brscan4/agree.html

Then, in a terminal:

mv /home/victoria/.cache/yay/brscan4/agree.html /home/victoria/.cache/yay/brscan4/agree.html.old

Update /install should now proceed. :-)

It works ! Many Thanks

Brother seems to have deleted the license file from their website. For the time being I have pushed a new version of the package that contains the license file.

Hello Harey and all

Brscan4 (0.4.8_1-1) build fails as can't be downloaded (error 404). Is there a way to bypass this?

Thanks in advance

The brsan4.install file should get this right without user interaction. Calling /opt/brother/scanner/brscan4/setupSaneScan4 -i does exactly what you did manually - adding 'brother4' to /etc/sane.d/dll.conf... Don't know why this does not work for you... Did you by chance configure addditional restrictions for pacman? Puzzled...
