As the title suggests I will describe here one specific situation that you may bump into from the list or problems you might face when trying out a package from AUR.
I had a post in another category if you wish to read the entire description of the problem:
But the short version is this:
Install a package from AUR : paru -Suy arbtt
Happily use it for a while
Do a system upgrade: garuda-update
Try to use arbtt again only to get lib not found error
Remove package from the system: paru -Rn arbtt
Remove paru cache of arbtt. Either delete ~/.cache/paru/clone/arbtt by hand or use some version of paru -Scc or paru -Sccd
Reinstall: paru -Suy arbtt
If more experienced users could comment on how to determine automatically which AUR packages need to be rebuilt after a system update that would really add a lot of value to this post.
Thanks for the tip.
To be honest I was not aware of the command line options for the script.
Now that I looked at /usr/lib/garuda/garuda-update/main-update I figured out what options I have to run it. But trying man page or info or -h was not really an option.
Well, the internet is a big place to search for info. I just wanted to help out some of the users that maybe were not using Arch or even around 20 years ago.
If you can post a link to an article describing this process I think many users will appreciate this.
Look, I don't think anybody reads the "Arch manual" in it's entirety before installing such a distro.
That is precisely why I was calling for more experienced users to share their experience with the community.
