Have you done step 5? It’s a compile process, which start with pulling package from git repository. Result is
something like package-query-git-1.8.7.g60f5df9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar in your package-query-git folder.
If you don’t have it, i suppose the common sense explanation is lack of git package.
So before step 5, from terminal
sudo pacman -S git
Then, as a regular user
makepkgand finally step 6.
Also, try @voepew solution, It’s faster :)
Yeap. Same error as @anarch and @ray6an1 on a fresh system (so there is not a fix yet)
Till package-query is updated, a small workaround, which involves updated git version, available from AUR (but because
yaourt is broken, you have to install it by hand)
- go to https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/package-query-git/
- download snapshot (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/snapshot/package-query-git.tar.gz)
- extract previous tar.gz
- open a terminal and go to newly created package-query-git folder
- sudo pacman -U package-query-git-*-.pkg.tar
- confirm overwriting existing package-query
- run yaourt / pamac and live another day
Pamac is not developed by our team.
I know that. :)
An extra tab for AUR is confusing because custom repositories, like Antergos or infinality-bundle are shown (bundled) with official Arch repositories and just AUR results have a different tab.
From a point of security or software quality/packaging, custom repositories and AUR are at the same level. Packages (pkgbuilds) not reviewed by TU.
Anyway, right now you have to parse two list of results and almost double time to do it. And the good point in that? I’m still looking for it.
For me, Pamac 3 is worse than Pamac 2 branch.
Program closes unexpected and frequently - this happen’t once with Pamac 2 (and i open it hundreds of time).
But major PITA is adding a separate tab for AUR pkgbuilds, which is confusing and is a wrong UI decision, because if you’re looking for a package name or looking just with a tag word, in order to see all results you have to check both repositories and AUR tabs - that’s a double parsing. It happened
too forgot to check AUR tab too.
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Looks like the package was flagged out of date today: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/aftershotpro/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).
Look on my screenshots (Romanian default, also English, which is installed mandatory).
First, Language & Regional menu (upper right)
Then you will see available languages (first two rows; below are input sources, for keyboard)
Change/confirm desired one.
