Installation of libglade2 on Arch

I am trying to configure my Canon LBP2900 Laser printer and I am having difficulty as in the requirement for building and installing packagas. the package
libglade2 (2.4.x or above) has been specified in the docs.

There is discussion thread for Ubuntu. To my dismay I have not found it for Arch.
I want libglade2(2.4.x or above) package.

Thanks.

Re: Installation of libglade2 on Arch

Have you looked at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/capt-src in particular the dependency it uses for glade?

Re: Installation of libglade2 on Arch

Yeah, I installed the AUR package capt-src 2.71-3. Then when I was trying to run the command
ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0

I got an error 
LBP2900 can't find in CUPS Spooler Entry!!

Then on https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php … ost5165850 [Ubuntu Forums], I get the link to download the proprietary Canon Printer software.
Once, I download the driver.
There I have to run the .rpm file and in order to install that RPM file(by making PKGBUILD), I need the dependencies listed on the README of the above link
https://github.com/vicamo/cndrvcups-common

Here

make gen
su
make install

Throws Error 1 and Erro 2 ( Maybe this is occuring because of missing libglade2 package.)
Thanks.

Re: Installation of libglade2 on Arch

Was the pdd for LBP2900 registered with cups before ccpdadmin was executed?

Re: Installation of libglade2 on Arch

1. that ubuntu thread is from 2008

2. the github repo hasn't seen updates since 2013

3. canon puts binaries and sources all together in one big archive. the driver used by capt-src is the same driver as linked in the ubuntu thread (the versions may differ, but that's all)

4.  canon printer drivers target older versions of software and getting them to work reliably on archlinux is tricky.
Building from source gives by far the biggest chance for success .

5. focus on getting the capt-src driver working, start wirth answering loqs question.

Re: Installation of libglade2 on Arch

The github repo that packages builds from does seem to be maintained actively.

It does list your printer (and a few others) as being supported.

Could you add something about this package and that it works with your model to https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/CUPS/P … lems#Canon ?
