Assistance installing Moksha on endeavouros

I am attempting to follow the tutorial here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Moksha

which states to install the following 5 packages:

  1. moksha
  2. moksha-module-deskshow** — Deskshow Moksha module
  3. moksha-module-emprint** — Emprint Moksha module
  4. moksha-modules-extra** — Miscellaneous extra Moksha modules
  5. moksha-radiance-theme** — Moksha Radiance from git sources

1 exists as moksha and moksha-git
2 exists but has a missing dependency named “elementary”
3 does not appear to exist
4 does not appear to exist
5 exists

Attempting to build JUST moksha-git and moksha-radiance-theme results in many 404 errors on files it’s trying to download and the build eventually fails. I’m wiling to do the leg work but this documentation seems out of date.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

To install the DE itself you just need to install moksha (I would prefer not to use moksha-git).
The rest is for additional applications and functionality. As you can see in the link you are supposed to intall the git versions.

Other applications

For additional functionality, one may wish to install the following:

  • moksha-module-deskshow — Deskshow Moksha module

https://github.com/JeffHoogland/moksha-modules-extra || moksha-module-deskshow-gitAUR

  • moksha-module-emprint — Emprint Moksha module

https://github.com/JeffHoogland/moksha-modules-extra || moksha-module-emprint-gitAUR

  • moksha-modules-extra — Miscellaneous extra Moksha modules

https://github.com/JeffHoogland/moksha-modules-extra || moksha-modules-extra-gitAUR

  • moksha-radiance-theme — Moksha Radiance from git sources

https://github.com/JeffHoogland/MokshaRadiance || moksha-radiance-theme-gitAUR

If not all dependencies can be solved (which is also the case on my system), it should not be a problem to not install these packages. The DE is supposed to work anyway without the functionality provided by just these packages (moksha-modules-deskshow-git, moksha-modules-extra-git).
That’s just what I could find out without installing the DE.
