@christoph.gysin: Thank you, I tried to install it on a fresh arch install and it works perfectly.

[EDIT]: Seeing news from the coreutils package, it seems that they are trying to fix this wrong chmod behaviour. It will be fixed with the new update to "coreutils" 9.0.2

@gabrielelinux: Thanks for reporting, should be fixed now.

I'm having issues installing this AUR package both with paru and with "makepkg -si". The installation stops when the process reaches the "prepare" stage. On terminal it says "An error happened in prepare().".

[EDIT]: Reading similar issues on the AUR packages, like a recent similar issue with the "spotify" package, I think the problem might be related to a change in the chmod command, with the new update of the "coreutils" package. It might affect the installation process because I saw that in the PKGBUILD at the beginning of the prepare() stage, there is a "chmod" command. But this is only an assumption.

I could, but I'm now quite sure it's not related to the source: previously, I've had an ancient version of the driver installed (4.01.17). When upgrading to your package, removing the printer from cups, then re-adding it, the black page issue happened. When restarting cupsd prior to adding the printer, it did not.

So, sorry for the false alarm and thanks for providing this package!

@maggis This is interesting. I don't quite understand what fixed this for you, since the tarball at the new URL is indeed identical except for a gzip header timestamp. You can verify this by uncompressing both. The resulting tar is identical:

$ curl -sL | gzip -cd | sha256sum
4fcb2e88fc74d73e7af9c4273ed16ec7d8a8c98882ac14de2e29ebe8f20f510c  -

$ curl -sL | gzip -cd | sha256sum
4fcb2e88fc74d73e7af9c4273ed16ec7d8a8c98882ac14de2e29ebe8f20f510c  -

Can you re-install this package with the URL in the PKGBUILD, and reproduce the problem?

@christoph.gysin @araruna I've hit the same problem on an SCX-4726FN. Managed to resolve it by changing the source to in PKGBUILD. Strangely, md5 and sha256 sums of both tarballs differ, but when extracting them and comparing sums of each file, all are the same.

@araruna Can you spot any differences in the installed files? I'm happy to fix this package, but I can't reproduce this with my printer.

Strangely, printing from the drivers installed from this package gives me a shitload of completely black pages (there goes my toner), with cups reporting that "/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertospl crashed on signal 6".

On the other hand, manually installing the same (?) drivers from HP's website worked out fine...

Unfortunately doesn't work on Samsung SCX-4100. When I try to add printer it says 'failed to add new printer additional drivers required'.(Please someone help me. I don't want to go back to windows just because of printer)

@Thermi: Thanks, fixed.
