How to install VLC

someone with vlc installed and pamac working…all the " dependencies" from VLC installed, vlc install just what he need, i need all to be installed to do acestream playable. tried last night on arch linux and worked, and today returned to Eos and BOOM, pamac is gone and i need gui to see what files need more :see_no_evil:

Did you read the thread? It has to do with pacman 6 that landed in the repo today, the PAmac devs need to get up to speed with this. Just be patient…

sudo pacman -Syu vlc

to install vlc. It will install all the required dependencies as well. You could have a look at:

for other optional dependencies you might need.

i was there but is hard to take 160 1 by 1 , i have vlc installed, how can i see what depencies was installed with or not gui ?

There might be better ones, but the closest I know is:
pactree vlc

Why didn’t you create new post, it has got nothing to do with the original post.

Please note that the command will list all the packages that VLC is depending on and not necessarily only those that got installed when installing VLC. You could have a look at pacman.log.

On my system (on yours it could have been different):

sudo pacman -S vlc

resolving dependencies…
looking for conflicting packages…

Packages (7) libdvbpsi-1:1.3.3-2 libebml-1.4.2-1 libmad-0.15.1b-9 libmatroska-1.6.3-1 libtar-1.2.20-5 libupnp-1.14.7-1 vlc-3.0.14-1

pacman -Qi vlc

That will show you the optional dependencies and which ones are and aren’t installed.
