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.

@phw I was not able to complete the setup wizzard without it, running KDE.

Why group "lp" and not "fax"?

phw commented on 2015-11-05 13:30

@tuxflo: Is it really a hard dependency or can I add it as optdepend? Because without libsecret being used it should also work without gnome-keyring.

tuxflo commented on 2015-11-05 12:48

Please add gnome-keyring as dependency, because the login wizzard can not be used without it.

I have updated the package to disable portaudio, looks like this feature is rather experimental anyway.

phw commented on 2015-03-11 18:37

@mpausch: I have never build it with portaudio installed, but I will see if this can be fixed. One solution is definitely to use the "--with-portaudio=no" option in the configure command to disable portaudio completely if you don't need it.

Actually this is what I will probably do to fix it. I don't see any benefit in compiling it with portaudio support.

just tried to install the 1.8.11 on my box, but during build I get an error regarding libportaudio:

Thanks for the reminder. For some reason I never got the out-of-date message :( Anyway, the package is now updated :)

I certainly know it is bad behaviour to ask for an update in the comments. But I already went the recommended way and flagged this thing out-of-date on 2015-02-01 (27 days ago).

So I'm writing here to create a polite reminder in your inbox.

Thanks for the feedback. I have updated the package to 1.8.10. This also fixed the build issue that came up with one of the last GTK updates. Also the fax printer is working again for me (I never found out why it stopped, but looked like a roger-router bug to me).
