Nikolaus was 0.0.1. This has more features. Automatic db sync got added. Also Guillaume is working on an update tool.

Install it with:

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -U http://mirrors.mycraft.eu/manjaro/pool/pamac-0.1-1-any.pkg.tar.xz

Only just tried it very briefly, but it looks and feels fine.

Just a couple of suggestions -- since Manjaro mainly uses sudo, it would be nice if it could prompt for the user's password (possibly with an option for root).  Also ideally it would allow searching and selection as a regular user and only raise the privileges for actual installation and removal.

If there's one thing that pamac needs, it's a remove unnecessary packages (deps) button running something like 'pacman -Rs $(pacman -Qtdq)' in the background.

Try using "gksudo" instead of "gksu".

Anyway is Pamac available in testing yet?

tested and satisfied. Option to install applications from Manjaro Unstable and AUR should be considered.
