My sister have a printer brother DCP-J315W, connected with usb.
I installed the brother-dcpj315w package from AUR, and it used to work without issue.
But I was informed "recently" that this printer is not working correctly since perhaps two months. (perhaps it's related to the AUR package update, but I think it's was already not working before the update.)
When I try to print, there is no activity on the printer, and, using the cups web-interface, I can see, for the printer status: "idle - sending data to printer"
I'm not sure about what I see in the logs, there are some failure about systemd and avahi service, when I try to print, perhaps it's the issue, but I really don't know.
It tried to not use the usblp kernel module without success, the printer is not recognized by cups without this module loaded.
So, I'm quite lost with this issue.

If you have any idea to help me debug this issue, I'd be grateful.
Thanks a lot to read this.

Issue solved, I had to execute this commande after the package installation:
I contacted the package owner so he can update his package.
