Help building software from source

The Arch wiki is confusing on this. How do i build software from a .tar.gz file? I’m not stupid honest just used to pop os. Thanks

Make sure you have done the following before you post:


First, we research.


  • Downlod a Snapshot
  • Unarchive the PKGBUILD
  • Run ‘makepkg -si’ in a terminal where you extracted the PKGBUILD

That’s the right way a/k/a “the Arch way” but you are going to learn a few of the wrong ways, probably right here.
