How to install this driver for x86_64 ?

You can simplify this PKGBUILD to depend on the cnijfilter-common similar to the cnijfilter-mp550 package.

changes in Pacman 4.2 means this pacakge no longer builds.

see for an improved pkgbuild (WIP).

This package will still work (at least it did for me) if you do the following:

1) bring in cups.patch and libpng15.patch from the lib32 package (thanks to that maintainer).
2) update this PKGBUILD by adding the 2 patches to the source section and their sums to the md5sums section:

source=( \
grayscale.patch cups.patch libpng15.patch)
md5sums=('0a40b46016511d59d1d0a3d3d9a653dd' 'f3d01db16494ae9ca16d9be8e9cd193b' 'abd0c2ee747e20558adcf327bb3a8633' 'e75b117cd7a399c0861c4e8e10c30294')

Put this at the beginning of build() (after the grayscale patch on the first line):

cd ${srcdir}/cnijfilter-source-${pkgver}-${pkgsubver}
patch -p1 -i ${srcdir}/cups.patch
patch -p1 -i ${srcdir}/libpng15.patch

3) build the package as follows: AM_CFLAGS='-ldl -lpthread' makepkg -i

I built this on a Toshiba Satellite U405. Sorry, I'm not a C programmer, so I can't maintain this - I just researched the errors and played with it until it worked.

Hope it helps someone.

To get it to work properly, I needed to add the following to the end of the PKGBUILD:

ln -s pstocanonijmp560 ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij || return 1
