Any chance we can get the archive put on some other file sharing service? It's giving me a 429 code when I attempt to visit the page.

Edit: Temporary workaround:
I downloaded the original rpm, converted it to tar.gz, uploaded it to github, then used that as the url.

The fix suggested by c.gerhorst seemed to work for me.

Thank you for your answer. I don't think so.
Anyway, changing the package section in PCKBUILD into
cp -a "$srcdir/usr" "$pkgdir"
mv $pkgdir/usr/lib64 $pkgdir/usr/lib
solved my problem.

Do you have any other cnijfilter related package installed, or some remnant? In any case, with a careful application of --force to the package, it should install fine.

Package seems to be broken.
Output during installation:
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)

Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Reason: Pacman 4.2 does not allow files in symlinked directories.

Source file timeout.

The resulting package was empty.
I applied this patch to the PKGBUILD (and also for the cnijfilter-mp495-x86_64 package) :

Also, why don't download the RPMs directly from the Canon website? They are included in the following tar :
