• \[SOLVED\] Can't edit pacman.conf


    (To add the Black Arch tools) I need to edit pacman.conf, the problem is that it’s owned by root and I don’t have write permissions. A while back, on a previous install, I tried chmod (If I remember correctly) to change permissions, which broke the file so that’s out. Is there some other way to do it?

  • Did you try using administrator rights?

    sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf

  • That did it thanks, I had been trying to find open it through dolphin.
