Install package epson-inkjet-printer-201211w failed

Hi, I've installed and configured a fresh setup of Arch Linux with Cinnamon desktop.

I need to install epson-inkjet-printer-201211w driver for my Epson WorkForce WF-2010w (wireless version), so when I try to do a makepkg -si from the downloaded git repo (https://aur.archlinux.org/epson-inkjet- … 01211w.git) it returns the following error:

running CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh /bin/sh ./configure LDFLAGS=-Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro,-z,now -Wl,--no-as-needed --prefix=/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201211w CFLAGS=-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fno-plt CPPFLAGS=-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 --no-create --no-recursion
configure: error: cannot find required auxiliary files: compile
make: *** [Makefile:290: config.status] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...

previously i get the following warning:

WARNING: `automake-1.11' is missing on your system.  You should only need it if
         you modified `Makefile.am', `acinclude.m4' or `configure.ac'.
         You might want to install the `Automake' and `Perl' packages.
         Grab them from any GNU archive site.

in my system is installed automake-1.16.2-3.

So I can't successufully compile and install this package.
How can I resolve this issue?
Please help, I would appreciate it very much, I am a arch linux newbie!
Thanks so much!

Re: Install package epson-inkjet-printer-201211w failed

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/217 … e#21773816 gave a clue that makes the build continue.

Add automake --add-missing to the PKGBUILD between libtoolize / chmod commands so it looks like this :

  libtoolize
  automake --add-missing
  chmod +x configure

Keep in mind this driver is very old (2012), the generated compile-file is very generic and the resulting package may not be functional.


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Re: Install package epson-inkjet-printer-201211w failed

You should add a call to automake-1.16 like this to the PKGBUILD:

  libtoolize
  automake-1.16 -a
  chmod +x configure

Edit: Sorry, forgot to reload. Maybe calling the 1.16 version explicitly would still be necessary.
