For me Antergos and Linux are both new. I wanted to try it because I tought it would be learning full. I don’t know if I have to meantion it, but as some of you can see; English is not my own language. So I hope it is good enough that I will give it a try to get the question straight.
One of the reasons to make the step to a linux distribution is for GRASS GIS. The programm had a few crashes in windows so that was the thing that convinced me that I had to move on to another operating system.
I tried to instal GRASS GIS in from the AUR, but the package, as I saw, is not in the AUR. So then I had one other option I tought, by downloading the snapshot. This snapshot contains the file that end with .tar.gz . After some research I found a few things using pacman. But the first question is that there is said that I must have a /build/ directory. I can’t found that directory so does that matter?
I tried to install it using the following code:
sudo pacman -U $HOME/Downloads/*.tar.gz
But this gives an error. It did found the file in the directory, but the error that is send says the package is corrupt. So can anyone help me with the installing of *.tar.gz files, because I think this is something that I will need more than only for this.
It would be creat if anyone knows how to solve this!
