• installing third-party software


    hi,
    i’m new in Antergos (after year of ubuntu). And i have some kind of problem…
    I have a Corel Aftershot Pro software, that i use a lot. Its commercial. In Corel’s web page i can download aftershot in 2 formats (for linux) - deb, and rpm. Is it any way to install that soft in Antergos?

  • Corel After Shot Pro is available via AUR.
    So, either look for it with pamac GUI or using a terminal,
    yaourt -S aftershotpro

  • in GUI i find nothing (dont know why), but with yaourt - aftershop is available. Thx for tip, for help!

  • The GUI only searches for precompiled binaries in the official Arch/Antergos repositories. Yaourt is searching the AUR, arch user repository, which stores thirty thousand odd user maintained packages mostly as PKGBUILD’s to download and compile the package from source code but in some cases, likely this one, to download a precompiled binary.

    Looks like the package was flagged out of date today: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/aftershotpro/

    pamac GUI works with AUR, too. It’s not enabled default, just that (Settings -> Preferences).
