AUR, i.e. Arch Unit Repository, is used to install software related to Arch Linux and other ACC distributions on the Linux operating system. But before proceeding with the use of AUR with Arch Linux, it is very important to understand the concept of AUR. The use of AUR not only improves the efficiency of the system, but also facilitates the installation of various applications and software packages. This guide provides an introduction to ASD, explains how to use ASD and why you should choose ASD. The step-by-step procedure presented in this article allows you to efficiently run and install applications using the AUR and associated packages.
Uniform Archive Register (AUR)
The AUR is an important part of the entire Arch-Linux core. AUR is essentially a community-managed repository that contains all the installation packages for the versatile Arch Linux operating system. With AUR you can also host packages outside the official Arch-Linux database domain. A useful factor with AUR is that most of the packages in this repository are linked to AUR before they are officially part of the Arch Linux database.
It conventionally follows a uniform criterion of three cardinal packets. PKGBuilds gives the user access to the source code of a package via makepkg, and the software or application can be installed using Pacman, the root package manager of the Arch Linux operating system.
The main purpose of the AUR is to delegate information about community packages and the Linux database to the Community Depository Repository. The AUR community can select packages to be part of the community repository based on distribution attributes and license authenticity.
AUR allows you to select a file from the PKGBuild repository and automatically generate the package yourself. Those who are familiar with AUR can use it effectively, but beginners are advised to learn the basics of Arch Linux and its distributions before working with AUR.
AUR consists of many types of packages, so updated packages come with different names to prevent collisions in the repository with programs of the same name. Programmers tend to use AUR to install packages because it is a safe approach with updated packages. Installing the package via AUR is relatively simple and convenient.
Using AUR in Arch Linux
AUR can be of great help when downloading and installing programs and packages in Arch Linux and related distributions such as Manjaro. You can set the AUR in two steps:
- Step one: Determine AUR
- Step two: Activating the AUR
The requirements for installing and using AUR in Arch Linux are justified by the need for suitable tools such as git and clone repository. These tools are an important part of the installation and use of AUR in Arch Linux.
$ sudo pacman -S git base-devel
The installation of AUR in Arch Linux can be divided into two methods:
- Installing AUR with the AUR Wizard
- Installing AUR without the AUR Wizard
SetAUR with AUR Assistant
If you want to install the archive of architectural units via the AUR Wizard, you may want to consider using active and well-equipped wizards called auracle-git, aurutils, trizen, yay, and pacaur.
Select one of the wizards and start the installation of AUR on your Arch Linux system. Once all system requirements are met in an updated form, you can install the AUR under Linux without any problems. Enter the following commands to install the AUR package on your server:
$ Clone of Git https://aur.archlinux.org/yay.git
To apply the changes, the directory of active packets issues the following command
To start the design process, enter the following command:
The wizard I chose to install the AUR packets is Yay. You can also select other tools based on your preferences. To install the packages, select the following command:
Replace the name of the package in the above command with the package you want to install.
AUR installation without AUR Wizard
It is not always necessary to contact the AUR Wizard to install AUR with the correct packages on the arc distribution. For this purpose, however, you should check some aspects of the desired packages that you may encounter on the AUR site. Please note the following categories before installing an AUR package:
- Dependencies .
- Last update
When you get help from the AUR Wizard, the packages are automatically verified by trusted users. However, if you download the packages yourself, you should check this data before installing the package on your main server.
$ git clone [Package URL]
In the above command, enter the URL of the package you want to download from the AUR site.
Suppose, for example, that you want to install the Telegram package on your desktop. Then this is what the team above looks like:
$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/telegram-desktop-git.git
Now use the second command:
Enter the name of your packet in the above command to change the active packet repository. For the office telegram package, this command is changed as follows:
Now run this last command and your package will be successfully installed with the :
In summary, the AUR makes it easy to use packages in Arch Linux. You can also decide whether you want to be assisted by an ASD assistant. After the above steps you can use the AUR with Arch Linux without any problems.
