Trying to install on Arch

As per title, trying to install Repetier-Server on my Arch system. I know that I'm likely missing something simple, but I can't figure out what's going on here. Usually, the documentation in/around is good enough for me to figure out what's going on with some Googling, but I can't find any leads here. Anyways, linked below is me attempting to start the server with no success+grep+ls of var/lib

It's stating that it's failing with result 'exit-code', and, unless I'm misinterpreting that, I would expect a code to be attached- and I don't see one. Any help would be appreciated.


  • Start as
    sudo /opt/RepetierServer/bin/RepetierServer -c /opt/RepetierServer/etc/RepetierServer.xml

    and you will see in terminal why it fails or at least chances are higher as you now see full output. Then I can say more on what might be wrong. Can be as easy as a defect xml file it is reading at startup.
  • Apparently, it can't find eeprommap. No idea what that means as of yet, have to look that up.
  • Microcontroller memory map for the printer? Anyways, I realized I also didn't explain my installation method. I used the package in the AUR here:

    I don't use a helper, just used makepkg, installed version 0.90.2-4. 
  • Looks like they missed a new file that was added apart from being behind our current release.

    Here I read it is possible to install deb packages directly. Since we have no special dependencies just installing that should work and give you latest version. Our install directory is /usr/local/Repetier-Server and not /opt/RepetierServer but that is all I guess.
  • Alright, at least that makes sense. I do prefer to track my programs in pacman, and learning how to compile a package is on my list of things that I should-know-how-to-do-but-don't, so this seems like a perfect time to try. If you don't mind, I'm going to point this out to the package maintainer and link to this thread. Thanks for your help, you've been a fantastic resource.
  • Great. If you have some commands that allow it to install from original deb package, please let me know. I can then make a faq entry to describe how to do it on arch linux. That way all 4 deb versions can be handled with a different linux distro then debian/ubuntu.
  • I know this is an old thread, but I have the same problem. Just started using Manjaro and don't  really know my way around yet. Is there a solution to the missing eeprommap file, or is the solution to install the .deb?
    Thanks, Ian
  • Not super familiar with Manjaro (it still uses Pacman, I assume), but I can say that in terms of the AUR side I submitted an orphan request for the package- hopefully, someone picks it up. Honestly, if you feel comfortable using a second package management system, the .deb is the option with better support.
