I have finally updated the package to 2.1.0. It was a bit of a PITA, since it requires older versions of gssdp and gupnp, but those are in the AUR now, too.

Fax printer setup is greatly simplified in Roger Router 2, you just need to run:

lpadmin -p Roger-Router-Fax -m drv:///sample.drv/generic.ppd -v socket://localhost:9100/ -E -o PageSize=A4

No need to fiddle with groups or spooling device anymore.

Apart from that I am actually looking for someone who is willing to co-maintain this package with me. The last months made it clear that I lack the time to do bigger updates, and the changes with Roger Router 2 are quite significant. Also upstream, understandible, is focusing on the Flatpak distribution, hence build requirements and build procedure are no longer as clearly documented. For now I think this PKGBUILD is fine, but there could be some tuning in regards to what dependencies are really needed on runtime.

Hi @phw, any plans to update the aur package to 2.1.5 (upstream released a new version on 2019-09-23)?

URL is https://gitlab.com/tabos/rogerrouter/-/archive/v2.1.5/rogerrouter-v2.1.5.tar.gz

Works great on my machine here. Thanks a lot.

The post-install message seems to be misleading.

According to upstream documentation at https://www.tabos.org/installation-unter-linux/ (German only – second grey box with lpadmin command) a generic PPD is (now?) used.

No /usr/share/cups/model/roger-fax.ppd after installation. Someone can confirm?

phw commented on 2018-03-20 13:14

Just an update: I will update the package, but I ran into some issues and time constraints. Also upstream does not seem to make separate source releases available anymore, so the package will be built directly from git.

@satriani: The usermod definitely not, that is modifying the user doing the packaging or install, depending where you place it. That's not the business of the package installation to decide which user goes into which group.

Creating the printer might be a little bit different, but given Arch packages in general let the user control the installation I don't like this idea either. The install script already outputs messages about both those things and the users can take action if they want to use the fax printer.

I have a few suggestions for you. Please add the following commands into PKGBUILD

usermod -a -G lp $USER
lpadmin -p "Roger-Fax" -E -v roger-cups:/ -P /usr/share/cups/model/roger-fax.ppd

@sgar: There is already a comment about lp group. Is fax group needed, too? Have to check.

sgar commented on 2017-09-19 14:24

would be nice to add a comment "add user to groups 'fax' and 'lp' and create those groups if they dont exist.."
