Thanks for your answer friend.
Although I don’t understand much about Linux, I don’t like Snap/Ubuntu/Canonical either, I heard that it has become very proprietary and they are collecting a lot of information and personal data from users (I don’t know if it’s true). That’s why I moved to Fedora, but I heard that Arch/EndeavourOS were better on these issues and that’s why I moved here.
It’s great that EndeavourOS/Arch supports Flatpak and other packages (I think that’s what it’s called), but I’d like to use the EndeavourOS/Arch core ones.
Sorry, my English is very bad, I didn’t exactly understand the difference between pacman and yay. Is it some kind of shorthand, like “apt/apt-get/aptitude”? Or something like “dnf update/dnf up”?
I have seen a video tutorial on youtube where they update first with the command “sudo pacman” and then with “yay”. So, are they different repositories? Or maybe a youtuber mistake?
Do you mean that if I use “yay”, it will ask me if I want to install X program from one of the 2 repositories, or will the “better” one be installed automatically?
For example, I need to install Steam and a program that is not in most repositories, is called JDownloader (or JDownloader 2).
So (thanks to the guide one of our mates put up in this thread), to install Steam and JDownloader you should use:
sudo pacman -S steam
sudo pacman -S jdownloader
sudo yay -S steam
sudo yay -S jdownloader
And should I update pacman and yay with different commands?
Also, I have seen the command “Syyu” instead of “Syu”, to update everything. I don’t know which one I should use.
Sorry, I’m sure these are dumb questions, but I’m looking at tutorials and guides to try to ask as little as possible, but I still have very basic questions.
