Simple AUR Package Installs


#1

Update: I decided it would be best to have this as a standalone script, you can now find it here


Yaourt is Dead!
#2

Good work Smoke, cheers for sharing.


#3

Great job @natemaia, simply sensational!!

Thank you! :+1:


#4

Yeah this is cool.


#5

Without doubt, I even think we need to baptize this script, type “al-inpkg-helper” or “al-helper-aur”
:joy::joy:


#6

“alpkg”!!


#7

It’s done!! :+1::+1::+1: (now the man has to confirm!..)


#8

:slight_smile: Hopefully he likes it


#9

Top job in there @natemaia.


#10

I am a fan of this, as my aforementioned impatience implies, I am a fan of time savers.


#11

@natemaia This is fantastic Nate, thank you! :grinning:


#12

Excellent work @nate, but I’m getting this error when I use --noconfirm:

error: invalid web address or no network connection

Works okay when I use --noview. Am I doing something wrong?


#13

Very good job

How does this script update packages?


#14

Apologies, it was --noconf

I have made the required edit above, either make the same change or just keep it as-is and use the shorter --noconf instead.


#16

Glad you like it, all of those packages are available in the official repos though so you can just use

pacman -S PACKAGE

However both are fine and essentially the same thing :slight_smile:


#17

I added a bit more functionality to the script in the original post


#18

I am thankful, and with update or not working very well … but I will update! :joy:


Now a question … I can translate some sentences, I mean the most common ones?
It seems to be possible but only you can confirm…


And once again thank you for your attention!


#19

Kinda wondered because your script shows --noconf, but I thought I missed something.


#20

Your welcome to change whatever you like. gettext may be some help


#21

Oops, thank you very much for replying and for the editor’s tip!!
I’ll start the damage! :joy:
