Getting drivers for printer and scanner

I added pamac classic and tried to get the drivers from the aur and each time it gave an error. I have been able to download these from the aur in other distros. Is it possible that the classic version is causing troubles? iscan-perfection-v370 is the search I use for my scanner. Epson is useless for getting drivers. The search I use for the printer is brother-dcp7060d. It is there but gets a error message. Below is an example of what occurs.
Unpacking objects: 100% (7/7), done.
==> Making package: brother-dcp7060d 2.0.4-2 (Sat 12 Oct 2019 04:33:29 PM PDT)
==> Checking runtime dependencies…
==> Missing dependencies:
-> lib32-glibc
==> Checking buildtime dependencies…
==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.

When I try to update I get:
Searching AUR for updates…
==> Error: Could not find all required packages:
update (Target)
Wonder if that is related to my problem.

Welcome,
Install lib32-glibc first and then you should have no problem. It’s missing this dependency.

For the scanner yay reports"

 yay iscan v370
1 aur/iscan-plugin-perfection-v370 1.0.1-2 (+2 0.00%) (Out-of-date 2019-09-21) 
    EPSON Image Scan! plugin for Epson scanners (GT-F740, GT-S640, Perfection V37, Perfection V370)

And the Epson site reports:
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/searchModule
Version 2.30.4
You could try the out of date AUR version and see if it works.
Or download the rpm version from Epson and follow:


Or use Google and search for “rpm arch”

Thank you I will try that.

Thanks, your words of support are appreciated.

This seemed to work for the brother printer but the scanner response was:

Aborting…
Is there another dependency that I am lacking?

Hello @Glen The URL is bad. I’m not sure if it’s being maintained as it is flagged our of date. I’m not sure whether this is in the git repository either to clone the package. Here is the Arch site.

https://aur.archlinux.org/iscan-plugin-perfection-v370.git

Edit: Here is the package download page. You can download the binary files or the package. You could try using debtap package to convert the debian files to Arch to install. It’s also in the Aur. Or the RPM and try like @CMarch has suggested.
