Install from packages from Github

Hello, i wanted to download a thing i found for my laptop.
here is the link : AUR (en) - razer-laptop-control-dkms-git

but i dont know how to install it and how. because it gives these errors. these are the solutions i found on the internet. and the only i could find, the others where basically the same

─casper@casper in ~
╰─λ sudo apt-get install git
[sudo] password for casper:
sudo: apt-get: command not found

and this is what i get. i tried using pacman but that did not work either as you can see

And Pacman is your package manager, not Apt.

Start all over. Use the Assistants. Sort & select mirrors and refresh.

Please never post pictures of terminal outputs. I am currently on my cell and can not read your pic. Post text as text.

Read the Garuda Wiki section on "Reporting bugs ".

sorry but i had to because i cant post more then 5 links

so you say to reinstall garuda? or just do the setup manager over again?

Go to Add/Remove Software and search or browse -

Same goes for any other software you want - look here (pacmac) First!

You could also use the setup assistant

i know that. but it always says no packages found. (even if i type something above)

Try

sudo pacman -Sy

Yes, refresh mirrors - either by CLI, as @RUanauR tells you, or -

No if there is no apps shown you refresh the database not the mirrors.

My mistake - sorry everyone :blush: Thanks, @RUanauR

(Feel free to remove offending post/s)
