Building and installing AUR packages.
There are two ways to install PKGBUILDer:
- Get it from the AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pkgbuilder/
- Add the PKGBUILDer unofficial repository: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Unofficial_user_repositories#pkgbuilder
After adding the repository, you need to run:
# pacman-key -r 5EAAEA16 # pacman-key --lsign 5EAAEA16 # pacman -Syyu
pkgbuilder is a command-line application. It takes various options and
package names as arguments. The following options are needed for basic usage:
-Sto work in /tmp instead of the current directory
-Fto fetch packages instead of installing them
-sto search for packages in the AUR
-ito get info about an AUR package
-uto upgrade all AUR packages on your system
PKGBUILDer also comes with
pb, a wrapper that works with both pacman and
For more information, refer to the
-h command, the
page, or the online documentation at https://pkgbuilder.readthedocs.org/.
PKGBUILDer supports per-user configuration, in the file ~/.config/kwpolska/pkgbuilder/pkgbuilder.ini. It can also be configured on a per-usage basis via command-line arguments.
SECURITY AND EDITING PKGBUILDs¶
By default, PKGBUILDer strives to be the no-questions-asked package manager.
This means that all packages are built immediately, without any confirmations.
The behavior can be overridden with the
option, or with
edit=pkgbuild=true in PKGBUILDer’s config file.
