Hi. would you consider updating to the latest version (2.50)? Thanks.

The Zedonet ftp server no longer accepts connections. (According to Zedonet forums, it's been turned off, however the ftp server is still running, but asks for login details, which no customer has.) If anyone needs to download older versions, use the Zedonet archive at instead.

Installing the package doesn't automatically install desktop widgets. Running /usr/share/turboprint/lib/install-post as root installs the widget, but I'm not sure if this is safe. For example, this script copies an init script to /etc/init.d (a file, not a directory.)

Important note: before upgrading to this package, make sure any AUR helper you use does save earlier versions in /var/cache/pacman/pkg. Otherwise, if the period covered by your license key for upgrades has expired, this package will not work. In which case you may find earlier versions of turboprint here:

The listed version 2.47.1-1 is no longer available for download. The currently available version is turboprint-2.48-2.x86_64.tgz

Until the package is updated, edit the PKGBUILD during install and change

pkgver to 2.48.2

md5sum for x86_64 = 1e10ba5d88c2754b264027a0a2207d64

sha256sum for x86_64 = 76c8e4e4b02f37da09c7711226b978b64aa6f7a9b4280a9a42e9e6da69a658e8

I won't maintain this package anymore, a new maintainer can take it. Regards.

If you encounter the

"curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading"

error, do the following, until this package is updated:

During installation say 'yes' to editing the PKGBUILD file.


That works for me.

This isn't working for me right now. I'm getting the following error message:

==> Retrieving sources...

I notice that manually clicking that link on this web page also 404s.

Hi, thank you for the patch. My license is not valid anymore and I won't probably use turboprint anymore. I can update the package, but somebody has to test it. Do you have a license ? Could you test the package ?
