There’s this stuff called bauh (from Manjaro :roll_eyes:) or old one called octopi

They all are complete Gobble-Gobble, if you ask me…:turkey:

I was going to suggest paru and yay (I mean, you don’t have to run it in a TTY)… But okay.

bauh and octopi are pretty much it.

You can theoretically use discover or gnome-software with packagekit but you shouldn’t. It is dangerous to use any packagekit-based package managers on Arch-based distros.
