So I tried to install Yaourt but got rather confused when I began to look through the pacman config file. Am I supposed to swap the antergos repository with the archlinuxfr repo? Or do I simply add the archlinux repo below the antergos one?
Add it below. Don’t swap out the antergos repository.
There’s no need to add the archlinuxfr repo. yaourt is already in the Antergos repo.
sudo pacman -S yaourtshould do the trick.
Also if you do not enable AUR support inside CNCHI?..
It’s enough to take a look at the list of packages, installed by Cnchi.
Yes, currently yaourt is installed by default only if a user enables the AUR feature. Yaourt is not installed by default if a user does not enable AUR feature.
Yaourt has a few useful features, not present in pacman, which could be useful to work with regular repos. But yaourt is mainly used to work with AUR, and would be almost useless without AUR, wouldn’t it?
…how exactly do i enable AUR support inside cnchi?
By placing the Arch User Repository (AUR) Support switch in ON position during Antergos installation. It’s the first option among additional features, offered by Cnchi during installation.
It is done during Antergos installation, not once it is finished.
Anyway, AUR is always available in Arch and Antergos. Just make sure that you have these packages installed:
You’ll also need some version of gcc compiler.
Then simply use yaourt to work directly with AUR.
