• Pamac instead of PacmanXG


    Hello, ive tried to install pamac as my main package manager GUI but whenever I try to start pamac it just doesn’t do anything. I looked into the logs and it is giving out the following error:

    pamac-manager: error while loading shared libraries: libalpm.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    

    Can anybody help me with this problem?

    Thanks

  • It means your system isn’t updated.

    Do this in terminal
    [command:1vq5vtkq]sudo pacman -Syyu[/command:1vq5vtkq]
    and let it fully complete!

  • Thanks for the response Yash but I think that the pamac package in the antergos repo needs updating as pacman is now using libalpm.so.9 but pamac is looking for libalpm.so.8.

    sudo pacman -Syyu did not do anything as my system is completely upto date.

  • Actually, pamac itself requires updates to its code to work with the new changes in pacman. Until its developers make the changes, Pamac will not work on Antergos/Arch I’m afraid.

    Best Regards,

  • Thanks for the response lots.0.logs. Now pacmanXG’s icon has disappeared altogether and i can not run it. I can install and use the AUR version ok but the one in the repos just will not display a launch icon, i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing.

  • There were a few packaging changes that I missed. I just pushed a new package that is finally working. It may take a an hour or two to show up on all the mirrors though.

  • Ok lots.0.logs! Thanks!
