All I can say is that on my install on openSUSE Tumbleweed I was able to add it to my systray using Add Widgets in Plasma 5. Since it is a download not an openSUSE package it should work OK for you in the same way.

One though what version of KDE Plasma 5 are you running on Manjaro? On Tumbleweed it is very bleeding edge so that might be a reason. My Plasma framework is at V5.40.0.

Hi again,

How can I obtain support with this?
I bought Turboprint 15 days ago.

Hello,

please excuse the late answer. I have just set up Manjaro 17.1.0 and was able to install the TurboPrint
manjaro-17.1.0-turboprint-applet without problems: Right-click on the panel -> panel options -> add widget [attachment=0]manjaro-17.1.0-turboprint-applet.png

I have not the Turboprint applet in the list.
Can I install it manually?

Please execute these commands in root shell (or put "sudo " before each line when entering):

plasmapkg2 -g -t plasmoid -i /usr/lib/turboprint/kde5applet
kbuildsycoca5
cp -r /usr/lib/turboprint/kde5applet/contents/locale/* /usr/share/locale
