Thanks heaps, joekamprad
Unfortunately, the material on those pages is as yet a little too much for me (but soon), so how about an example of proper pacman syntax to install a program?
Especially the form the package is supposed to be in, like still tarballed, or extracted…
I’ve tried everything I can think of here, obviously I’m missing something very basic
This didn’t work:
sudo pacman gnucash-3.3.tar.bz2
sudo pacman gnucash-3.3
error: no operation specified (use -h for help)
And a variety of other switches.
I hope the solution is something simple and obvious we can all get a laugh…
I’ve tried over ath0 with both user name and email
I was able to login with Chromium where I had temporarily saved the login creds, but if I copy those creds into another browser they don’t work.
I hope it’s not that I can’t be logged in on 2 browsers - at least I’ve done that elsewhere, but I’m now afraid to log out of chromium cuz i have questions posted.
Coming over from Linux Mint and I see a few stumbling blocks. I’ve not been able to find an answer anywhere to my question (I do poorly at search queries) which is:
Antergos equivalents for things like “build-essentials”, and the missing one (?) on this list:
apt-get build-dep gnucash # Debian based
yum -builddep gnucash # RedHat based, but
dnf builddep gnucash # Fedora (recent)
zypper build-deps-install gnucash # Opensuse
(I know I can install Gnucash the easy way, but it’s only v 3.2 and I want to reinstall v 3.3, which is way better.)
Can somebody direct me to some how-to’s or tutorials?
btw, have checked the man pages and am as yet unable to get pacman to do what I ask.
