After fresh install, I don't have AUR (twice)


#1

Hi, Labbers… I have problems… Two fresh installations and I can’t get AUR and nothing of the AUR… Other things via Pacman works perfect… What am I doing wrong? Am I missing a special step? I install the TWMs plus Openbox and a few apps… Others talk about Aurman and I don’t know where is it in the procedure? I prefer Yay or Trizen, but I can’t install Pamac… What’s happening? Please, help.

You can use our built in AUR helper to install yay, by using baph - i yay. Let me know if this solves it!


#3

For install yaourt.

https://archlinux.fr/yaourt-en

But even with yay you can install it
Cheers


#4

Yaourt no longer maintained afaik
Use baph itself, or install yay or preferred current AUR helper with baph <3


#5

Yaourt is no longuer supported and should no longuer be recommended :wink:

Just manually clone the yay (or the baph project) and install it locally, you’ll be able to install from the AUR after that.

I don’t use AUR helpers myself but I would strongly recommend @Alad’s aurutils, he’s a TU and used to help out at the #! forums.
