Glad that you sorted it out @cyberx

I had to change the DE from Cinnamon to plasma.
And now those commands those don’t work for me …
How to install the Pamac for Plasma Enviroment?

Never used a Plasma environment, sorry can t help you much on that one @cyberx

You did a reinstall or just changed DE?

I reinstalled with Plasma.

$pacman -S git base-devel

then do what you did before.

baph should be available (not 100% sure in plasma install). If it is, you could use baph to install directly.

[zumaha@zumaha-pc ~]$ pacman -S git base-devel

Dont know what may be wrong … i installed it on Cinnamon with the commands from my second post .

What’s wrong?

$which git

$which makepkg

Did you update before attempting to install pamac @cyberx !

[zumaha@zumaha-pc ~]$ which git
/usr/bin/git
[zumaha@zumaha-pc ~]$ which makepkg
/usr/bin/makepkg

@altman How do i that ? Thanks

No problem @cyberx . Sometimes we forget. In Terminal;

sudo pacman -Syu

What came out then?

Now i was able to install it . THANKS GUYS !

@cyberx Have a look at this thread, as you seem to be pretty new to the Arch environment;
