How to Enable AUR in Octopi

configure aur on octopi

I wrote some tutorials about how to enable AUR repository in Manjaro in this blog. Most of the tutorial is based on Manjaro GNOME edition. But there are some differences if you are using Manjaro KDE version. In this article, I am going to show you how to enable AUR Repository in Octopi in Manjaro KDE edition.

Steps to Enable AUR in Octopi Manjaro KDE

First, we need to install base-devel package. Use this command on Terminal:

sudo pacman -S base-devel

Next, we also need to install pacaur package

sudo pacman -S pacaur

Next, we are going to configure AUR in Octopi. Open Octopi and go to Tool >> Options and then click AUR tab.

If you haven’t installed pacaur, you cannot change the value in this AUR tab. Now since we have installed pacaur, we can set the value to pacaur as follow.

Next, click Icon tab and enable the option “Use the default notification icon”

Click OK and you are good to go.

How to Search Package from AUR Repository

Now, let’s try to search package from AUR repository using Octopi. Type the package you want in the search box. Next, Click the green Alien button next to the search box to start the search process.

That’s it. Thank you for reading this article to enable AUR in Octopi. I hope you enjoy it and see you.
