HPOJ ptal printer daemon for Arch

Hi all, I still haven't managed to make a nice pacman package for the HPOJ driver (useful for multifunction HP printers) but I did make this daemon to put in /etc/rc.d/ to make it start with the Arch look. Bear in mind you might have to edit it for your own configuration; my HPOJ driver is installed the old fashioned way from source.
If you think this might be useful get it here and put it in /etc/rc.d/ . Remember to put it in the daemons array *before* cups! Please check it over before you install it, but it works for me wink

I'd be very glad to, but I'm using a USB only printer. Anyway, where can I find your repository?

Re: HPOJ ptal printer daemon for Arch

Right, sorry, I had an old list of TURS. Congrats on making the grade wink
You're right, your package didn't work for a PSC750 connected by USB. Could I maybe see your PKGBUILD? I managed to compile it in the end, when I first installed hpoj, and managed everything except getting it to install to a userspecified location. I could probably make a usb compatible package if you'd give me that. Cheers!
