Thanks for your patch.

Using "for" loop for installing packages was nice, And also removing symlink
from .install to PKGBUILD. But I didn't change the "pkgrel", Since it's just an
edit on PKGBUILD itself. It's fools users to update.

I've rewritten the PKGBUILD, I've split the package() function from build(). Also the /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij symlink is included in package.

UPDATED Release number.
Now it will be listed as a package that need to be updated through "yauort" or
other AUR helpers.

Actually not all cnijfilter* are compatible, When there weren't
"cnijfilter-mp280" I've tried to use others like mp270 which was
working properly but other packages didn't worked for me or at least properly.

"--program-suffix=mp280" for each will set some useful(not very
required) information for each package and lib. Seems most of canon driver on AUR
failed to compile/build due to this issue.

Anyway, Still I'm using my mp280 printer and I would like to take the ownership
of cnijfilter-mp270.

Yes, that seems to work, well done. By the way I think we should unite all these cnijfilter* packages. Why not provide all the ppd? I think the suffix mp280 added is purely cosmetic. I was using the the cnijfilter-mp250 package ( with a mp270 printer which is actually the same package (moreover the maintainer of the last package was asking for someone to take over his package in a comment).

No need to install older version of automake from AUR.
I've patched the source code, And it built successfully.
Please try it and give a feedback if it's works for you properly.

@Alir3z4 I agree that to properly fix the source would be better. But perhaps we should propose a working package in the meantime. If someone find a better fix, we could always apply it. At least using the other version of automake would allow users to print and would not damage anything. My opinion is that a dirty hack to compile a package is always better than nothing at all.

Alir3z4 commented on 2013-01-10 19:04

Yes, Correct.
But I don't think using other version of `automake-1.11` which from `AUR` would be the Right solution. We should looking for a generic solution, by generic I mean not using other version of `automake`, Have to find a way to patch the source code itself.

This package does not compile

Running autoconf ... error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE

This is due to an incompatible version of automake. I am not competent enough in autoconf to properly fix it, but it is possible to compile it with automake-1.11 (available in the AUR) as described here:

I am sure. Besides, they are dependencies of this package so I have to have them installed. Here's my full build log:
Some gcc comments are in Dutch, the actual error is the "dereferencing pointer to incomplete type".
