@antesilvam: enable multilib repo

this packages seems to be broken for me unfortunately:

Reading repository package databases... Reading local package database... Resolving AUR dependencies... :: error: Can't resolve dependencies for AUR package 'canon-pixma-mx870-complete': :: error: Dependencies missing for canon-pixma-mx870-complete :: warning: Following packages cannot be found in AUR: lib32-popt

@mathiassteiger /usr/lib32/cups issue should be fixed now - apologies for the delay in making that happen.

Probably the conditional at the bottom of the PKGBUILD that reads the architecture and copies it if x86_64. Thank you for bringing this to my attention @mathiassteiger - I will see about fixing the PKGBUILD soon.

It broke about in 2019-05 for me, but it was working perfectly before.

The problem is that the install directory is now /usr/lib32/cups , instead of /usr/lib/cups , and the former is just not read and never was read by Cups. I tried to fiddle with PKGBUILD to change it, but strangely it always ended up installing in lib32.

So now I just copied all the files to normal lib directory.

All working well.

Thanks for the heads up, ben2ben. Looks fine right now, but if anyone else reports issues, I'll find a new place to host the source files.

Manjaro KDE kernel 4.4.38-1
When trying to connect to

the connection kept timing out. I started a ping and once the site was up again I was able to DL the file and complete the install.

Note. I use uri lpd://ip_of_printer/PASSTHRU to get my mx870 to respond.

hope this helps folks :)

Hmm...according to the CUPS ArchWiki article, the PPD file is specified using the -P switch (

The man page for lpadmin seems to indicate that -m is used in conjunction with lpinfo to get a list of available PPD files (

Can you try the command again with the -P switch instead and see if it works?

lpadmin -p CanonMX870 -m canonmx870.ppd -v cnijnet:/00-00-00-00-00-00 -E

as root and with a valid mac-address, of course

Can you paste the command you are trying to execute?
