I find "Add/remove software"
Typing pamac in command line.doesn't work for me.

Tank you!
Manjaro is har to start with for beginners. I miss a real beginners guide with simple thing like write a command like "pacman -s program-name" but after a day I can do simple things on my two laptops (Lenovo Yoga and Samsung N210 Netbook). But Manjaro with full interface is to heavy on the netbook with Atom. Must learn more about command line :)

Haven't you seen the Beginner User Guide.pdf in the /home/manjaro/Documents/ folder? It's a real nice tutorial to discover the Manjaros goodies.

Also check the excellente wiki

pacman and yaourt have been discussed and introduced to the bone in the arch-wiki. Things not to be found on manjaro wiki are to be found over at arch in general.

Also there is no need to force cli use over yourself. A fluent use of it takes years and most people like myself have developed own habbits of using computer where certain things are being done in GUI as others almost exclusively on command-line

As of AUR 3.0.0, it now fully supports split packages.

For example, look at chromium-pepper-flash:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/chromium-pepper-flash/

Click to "View PKGBUILD" and you'll find yourself looking at the PKGBUILD for chromium-plugins, which creates both chromium-libpdf and chromium-pepper-flash.

The AUR search interface still lists the packages separately (as it should, since it now properly supports split packages).

Pamac isn't handling this, it can see there's an updated version of (say) chromium-pepper-flash, but when it tries to update it just sits there doing seemingly nothing.

Currently I'm rewriting pamac in vala for more speed and simplicity. I will have a look at this and go back to you if needed  :)

Lizbeth1, your post had nothing to do with Pamac so i've deleted it. Note the difference: Pamac vs Pacman (and even if this was a thread about Pacman, it still wouldn't be the appropriate place for your post. Your problem is related to package signatures issues when you try to update). Make yourself a new thread asking for help with your problem.

Also, the first result of a Google search for 'manjaro signature problems' probably has your solution.

Our fourth beta is now out:



Guillaume was working for some time on a new design for pamac. Even if there is still some work to do, he wants some feedback on the work he had done so far. That for he proposed a preview version.

It has a new design:
  • we are now using headerbar
  • double click on a package name to view details.
  • in dependencies view, click on a dependency to view its details
  • you can continue browsing packages while a transaction is running
So tell us what you think about it ...

I have noticed the changes after the last update.

For me the previous version was beautiful and fit was better to xfce.

Looks too much gnomish for me, I changed to octopi now.
