Howdy! Maybe someone can help me with this situation… Feeling a little blind
I’ve been trying to install packages that are listed on the AUR (https://aur.archlinux.org/), however many of the specific items I’ve been looking for aren’t being located by pacman for some reason.
I’ve searched for these items:
But nothing seems to come up. Other packages, such as i3, nodejs and others come up just fine.
I’ve tried forcing a repository update with “pacman -Syy” as well, but no luck.
Is anyone else having this issue? Would it happen to be common?
It is extremely common. It effects everyone.
pacman is only for repo packages. It doesn’t search for or install packages from the AUR.
yay, it uses the same syntax as pacman but works with both the repos and AUR.
Dude, you’re my hero, thank you XD
I come from the land of debian so this is good info to know
Also…welcome to the forum!
Thanks! Pleasure to be here
You can also use Bauh package manager, which does search installed and uninstalled packages from AUR.
Thanks! I’ll have a look at that as well
I advocate ‘paru’ as a unified installer.
Happy learning Arch. KISS …
