Scanning for brother did work the other day and now the debtap brscan4 module does not fit with simple-scan. :x

No way simple-scan will recognize my brother printer as a scanning device. =@

openrc the system behind nemesis: printing as an example

Post#19 by ncmprhnsbl » 06 Jan 2018, 23:41

could be a temporary thing.. did you pacman -Sy first?
a heads up: there are bunch of packages out of date in the base modules as of yesterday..

Post#20 by francois » 07 Jan 2018, 02:10

1.0 Is there a way to flush changes without login out of nemesis? I find it much time consuming to do so to remove changes from another install like porteus for example.

2.0 Same result at second try. Impossible to build the printer module. Pacman -Sy will not be sufficient. :(

Heads up for you. :happy62:

looking at one package on one of the mirrors: imagemagick-7.0.7.19-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz is a different version to one you trying to get..
http://artix.wheaton.edu/repos/world/os ... pkg.tar.xz
so maybe

Code: Select all

pacman -Syy
to force rewriting the database

Solution:
Always fresh (without changes) will yield the printing module as proposed in the first post. So in the future, I will be building only in only fresh mode.
Thanks.

Plank module though functional before reboot will not be functional without the changes. So lets dig it in the thread for plank.

Having some printing and scanning problem since december with nemesis.

Finally, the solution for the printing was with missing ghostscript and its associate dependencies. I downloaded the package with and followed stifiling instructions:
Porteus/Arch aka Sensei (Porteus w/pacman package manager)

Code: Select all

pacman -Sw ghostscript
Here is an old link with a simple procedure to install brscan4 scanner driver. You need to have yaourt:
http://neithere.net/2013/02/18/archlinu ... _7860.html

Code: Select all

$ yaourt -S brscan4-network
$ sudo brsaneconfig4 -a name=Brother_MFC-7860DW model=MFC-7860DW ip=192.168.000.107
This link provides also the printer driver installation.

Updated first post to build module instead of using pman. However, this is only temporary version. Though I have been able to obtain a functional module on another linux box. This time it did not work.

I know understand what is meant by necro bumping for the arch linux brains.The concept is important, especially for a rolling distro. :happy62:

Thus this thread will soon be closed to be replaced by a new one.
