Yay -S pamac-all returns an error

I’m trying to install pamac-all because I want flatpak support. Attempting to run yay -S pamac-all returns an error:

ERROR: Dependency “snapd-glib” not found, tried pkgconfig and cmake

However, when I do yay snapd-glib, it says that snapd-glib is installed.

Welcome to the forum! :smile:

There are also other pamac versions that include flatpak support, like

  • pamac-nosnap
  • pamac-flatpak

I don’t use any pamac, so I don’t know if they work.

Check also command:

yay -Ss pamac flatpak

or this page:

yay -S pamac-flatpak

This worked! Thank you.

If having a GUI package manager is not important to you, you could manage flatpaks (search, install, remove, repair, etc) from the command line.

See: man flatpak and/or flatpak --help

Thanks! I’m certain this’ll be useful knowledge to have.
