Can pamac-all be installed to replace pamac-aur

Hi there, I run Garuda XFCE and i am generally happy with it. I have a quick question. If I wanted to replace my pamac-aur with pamac-all whats the easiest way of doing that?

Use pamac and see what happend.


pamac-all conflicts with pamac-aur and several other "flavours", so installing it you will be asked to confirm that pamac-aur will be removed and press Y.
PS1: the title says "on top of", the post "replace": I assumed the latter was the intended action
PS2: please consider that the use of GUI tool for searching packages and maybe install a single one could be OK. But our strongly-suggested tool for updating your system is garuda-update

PS3: welcome to the forum!!! (last but not least)


If you are using anyone of the pamac for installing packages, you will see breakage sooner or later.


Thank you for your response. I tried installing pamac-all using pamac itself but the build process failed because it says it cant find some dependency i think it was snapd.glib or something similar. here is the output of the .build file:

conf = configuration_data()
conf.set('bindir', join_paths(get_option('prefix'), get_option('bindir')))


now im having errors installing anything:

==> Starting build()...
error: failed to determine cargo home: could not find cargo home dir
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Finished with result: exit-code
Main processes terminated with: code=exited/status=4
Service runtime: 2.235s
CPU time consumed: 1.670s

bash: rua: command not found

I dont think I understand what you are saying.

I moved it to #issues-assistance:aur-snaps-flatpaks-other
Ask the developer, please

You can also try following the comments in the AUR link, there seem to be workarounds but probably not so trivial.
Also installing with a AUR helper like paru or even better building manually might be needed.
I've no experience with pamac but I do know it always created a lot of issues here in the past.
If your system is currently broken for any installation you should consider restoring the latest working snapshot...


So yeah turns out pamac-all itself has a problem. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I have since started using bauh which I find to be a very nice package manager that connects to everything.
