Re: Printing problems EPSON BX535WD driver epson-inkjet-printer-201106w

From the build warning, I'd postulate that this is not 64bit clean; there were similar bad coding practices in the the epson-inkjet-printer-escpr code, now patched in the AUR.

Re: Printing problems EPSON BX535WD driver epson-inkjet-printer-201106w

Thank you for helping me out – really appreciated! I highly value this printer as it is a faithful tool.

I still dislike the PKGBUILD, but the build system used is so old (automake 1.11 ) that those weird things appear to be necessary.
I'm tempted to suggest to setup a RHEL4 VM for printing (that's how old the build system feels) , but there hopefully will be a better solution.

I can't judge the quality of a PKGBUILD, far too deep waters…

The idea of keeping an entire VM at hand just for printing on a fairly standard printer (even one with Linux support by its manufacturer!) does really seem a little over the top. If at all possible, I would like to avoid going down this particular road.

If it still fails after reworking the PKGBUILD possibly try with --no-pie -fno-stack-protector as well as the old makepkg options.

I appended these options to the CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS variables in the makepkg.conf (the one from pacman-5.0.2-1). Was that correct?
The package builds at least, but the filter still crashes.

Condor perhaps try epson-inkjet-printer-escpr it is listed as compatible with your printer.

Re: Printing problems EPSON BX535WD driver epson-inkjet-printer-201106w

While the 201106w driver hasn't been updated since 2012, the escpr driver appears to be maintained.
I agree with loqs, try that one first.


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.

(A works at time B)  && (time C > time B ) DOES NOT EQUAL  (A works at time C)

Thanks for the suggestion. No good :-(
When printing through this driver, the printer itself seems to crash and reset. All lights on it start blinking, and it will not respond to key presses. After turning it off and on again, volatile settings such as the date and time are reset. The printer then goes into a long loop of moving about the print head (presumably several nozzle checks/cleanings).


I would still like to test if the suggested changes (-no-pie -fno-stack-protector) to the build options work. Did I apply them correctly?

Re: Printing problems EPSON BX535WD driver epson-inkjet-printer-201106w

loqs … awesome! That patch cures the crashing filter. Thank you!

Tests are still ongoing, I haven't tried more advanced settings like multiple pages per sheet thoroughly yet. But so far, all looks very promising.

I will look into it that the maintainer of the AUR package adds the patch and updates the PKGBUILD.

Re: Printing problems EPSON BX535WD driver epson-inkjet-printer-201106w

Further tests have shown no problems. All print options work!

Only one error remains: Each time when printing, a CUPS error message is displayed as popup on the desktop.

Printer Error
Printer 'EpsonStylus': 'cups-waiting-for-job-completed'.

As I sit right next to the printer, I can live with that and just look at the printer to see the progress.

Thanks again all for your help!
