Need help with Behringer x32 install

Trying to install Behringer x32edit mixing console app on laptop.
Found the arch link, but have no idea how to install it on Garuda.
I’ve done it on Mint as a deb., but I’m Garuda newb.
Followed some of the arch install tuts, but not a clue.

Please, ask the support, paid software?

no it’s not paid software.
Windows and Linux versions are free downloads, I have installed it on Linux Mint and Windows…Just clueless on Garuda.
I’s also available as: X32-Edit_LINUX_4.3.tar.gz On the Behringer site.
But can’t figure out how to install it from that either.

Always search the arch wiki, please.

Install the package

The package can now be installed with pacman:

pacman -U *package_name*-*version*-*architecture*.pkg.tar.zst


  • If you have changed your PKGEXT in makepkg.conf, the name of the package file may be slightly different.
  • The above example is only a brief summary of the build process. It is highly recommended to read the makepkg and Arch build system articles for more details.

Read the Comments at the link you gave.


Doesn’t seem to work, I tried every combination of that, I do need to include the path to the file I presume, but I tried every conceivable that I could think of.
Guess I’ll have to do a lot of reading.
I like Garuda, but it’s just weird coming from Ubuntu, Debian, distro’s.

pacman -U installs an archive following the pacman package format. pacman -S installs a package from the repos.

man pacman, pacman --help

What SGS is probably trying to tell you is that you can install the archive from the behringer website via pacman -U

did you change the name?

Just post what you did, please. Input command and the following log as text (like the inxi)

Ok I’ll do some reading and experiments…
Will post outcome.

Can’t look at it right now but I’ll try to remember the inputs I did.

pacman -U  /home/keith/Downloads/x32-edit.pkg.tar.zst
pacman -U  /home/user/Downloads/x32-edit.pkg.tar

went ahead and extracted then tried

pacman -U  /home/user/Downloads/x32-edit.pkg
] × sudo pacman -S
error: database not found: https:
sudo pacman -S

I think that is all but can’t get to machine at moment, will try anything later.

You know my adage is with “the first thing to do with new software”,
break it, so you know how to fix it. :sweat_smile:

I see it’s a package in the AUR repository, not a binary available in the Arch repo.
So you’ll have to build it, as opposed to a simple installation with pacman.
Either you use the manual instructions in the Arch wiki or use a helper. E.g.

paru x32edit

Exit from the presented PKGBUILD with button q and confirm installation.


Awesome, the paru x32edit worked, I just didn’t get the q and answer y for yes at the end of all the output.
Fired up just fine, Thanks…"Why don’t they include those tips?

Because learning Garuda (Arch-based) takes a little more time than a stroll through the park.

I’ve been learning Linux for over 25 years, Arch for 10-12 years. And I am far far from having completed that task…

How about you?


Well, if that’s the case I think the egg was just fertilized.
