I would very much like to install Korganizer in EndevourOS but can’t seem to make it happen. Can someone help, please?
Welcome to the forum!!
Can you give us more details? What method are you using to install
What Desktop Environment are you running?
OS: EndeavourOS Linux x86_64
Uptime: 3 days, 1 hour, 13 mins
Packages: 1002 (pacman), 8 (snap)
Shell: bash 5.1.16
DE: Xfce 4.16
WM Theme: Arc-Darker
Theme: Arc-Darker [GTK2], Arc-Dark [
Icons: Arc-X-P [GTK2], Arc-X-D [GTK3
CPU: AMD FX-8350 (8) @ 4.000GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
Memory: 1862MiB / 15988MiB
I tried this:
sudo pacman -Syu Korganizer
:: Synchronizing package databases…
error: failed to synchronize all databases (unable to lock database)
sudo pacman -S Korganizer
error: failed to init transaction (unable to lock database)
error: could not lock database: File exists
if you’re sure a package manager is not already
running, you can remove /var/lib/pacman/db.lck
sudo rm -f /var/lib/pacman/db.lck
This will remove the
db.lck file which is preventing pacman to run
sudo pacman -Syu
to update your system. Finally, run
sudo pacman -S korganizer
to install your package.
sudo pacman -S is the proper way to install a package, the other one you listed (-Syu) is used for updating all installed packages. The message about being unable to lock the database makes me think you already tried some other things. I would reboot to “clean” things up and then try again.
You can update the system plus install new packages at the same time.
pacman -Syu name_of_package works just fine.
Worked perfect! Man thanks a million!
Nice to hear. Can you mark one of the posts as the solution?
