They released v 3.1 yesterday, but I reported a bug. They said they have just fixed it, but right now they have removed all the links to the downloads.

@mpei it's nice to hear that your issue was resolved. Note that you might be able to avoid the binary printer driver altogether. If you have a recent HP printer with AirPrint support then driverless printing with CUPS should just work, and it's possible you could get driverless scanning working via eSCL protocol with SANE's eSCL builtin backend or the sane-airsane one.

Thanks for everyone pointing me in the right direction. It is solved and I think I know what happened.

I renamed the symlink: mv /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu.tmp

And installed insync with yay: yay -S insync aur/insync-nautilus aur/insync-nemo

Some time ago I had hp-lib installed and I remember that needed the symlink to be there in order to run properly and find the plugins. So I must have put that in manually and forgot about it. I'm grateful for all your help.

I'm grateful for all your comments! I really am not sure how to debug this on my own.

This only makes sense if you have a symlink somewhere there. So it's /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu or /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0.

Just test this with $ file /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0, one of them should be a symlink, and then check which package own the symlink (can be none if created by an install script).

I did then remove the .cache file and tried to install again: error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) insync: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu exists in filesystem Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

@mpei /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0 is a directory and it's not a problem if multiple packages own it.

Also, I'm pretty sure that you didn't run this on /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0 but on /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0.

$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache?

It would be great to check if the symlink / directory is there before creating it.
