• ( Solved ) Spideroak on Antergos/Arch


    I have been trying to install spideroak via Terminal.
    both with and without the dash. I’ve had several runs at it using specific command structures for spideroak (as you will notice below).
    No go.
    Would anyone have any ideas to what I am doing wrong?

  • That package is in the AUR:
    you need yaourt and base devel first:

    sudo pacman -S yaourt base-devel

    then:

    yaourt -S spideroak

  • Strange. I had base-devel and yaourt already installed. When I selected to install, it re-installed everything that was listed. Yaourt was up to date as per Terminal dialogue. Regardless after the ‘re-install’ and the command via yaout, Spideroak was successfully installed. I guess I just had to use yaourt, which at first did not occur to me. I just automatically use pacman for pretty much all.

    How were you able to determine that I needed to use Yaourt, as opposed to Pacman if I might ask? Is it because it’s not part of the base file system needed for the system to run smoothly? If so, then that would explain why.

    Regardless, thanks for the tips, AJSlye.
    I got what I wanted.
    Solved.

  • The link you posted was from the AUR: ([https://aur.archlinux.org/packages][0]">[https://aur.archlinux.org/packages][1]) not the official repo’s:([https://www.archlinux.org/packages/][0]">[https://www.archlinux.org/packages/][2])…

    The AUR (Arch User Repository) are user contributed think a cross between PPA (Ubuntu) and overlays (Gentoo) but all in one place,

    [0]: <a href=
    [1]: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages
    [2]: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/

  • How were you able to determine that I needed to use Yaourt, as opposed to Pacman

    The easiest way from the CLI (Command Line) is with:

    yaourt (or packer) -S (with packer add --aur) aur/filename
    

    but pacman won’t give you the AUR files.
    So use:

    yaourt (or packer) -S (with packer add --aur) aur/filename
    

    to see all.

    You can also see the repos through using PacmanXG.

    I users ‘packer’ instead of pacman. So the command would be:

    yaourt (or packer) -S (with packer add --aur) aur/filename
    

    OR

    yaourt (or packer) -S (with packer add --aur) aur/filename
    

    to install packer first.
    The --aur switch is optional, and even if you use it, it will give you a search from the AUR and the common repos.

    If you have two filenames the same in both common and the AUR, and you want to install just the AUR file then use:

    yaourt (or packer) -S (with packer add --aur) aur/filename
