Ungoogled chromium repository

Ungoogled-chromium suggests adding the OBS (Open Build Service) repo to install the binaries for the package. GitHub - ungoogled-software/ungoogled-chromium-archlinux: Arch Linux packaging for ungoogled-chromium

However, it's also present in the chaotic-aur. Looking how people online don't recommend downloading from the chaotic-aur, I only use it just to update what's included with Garuda Linux like firedragon. All other programs not present in repos, I download them through AUR using paru.

But chromium is one of those big packages which, as I've heard, takes hours on most machines to compile. So pre-compiled binaries is my only option (the AUR package here compiles from source)

Seeing the github page stating OBS repo as official way to get the binaries, how do I make it so that when downloading or updating the ungoogled-chromium package, it is done so through the OBS repo and not chaotic-aur repo?

I belive there is some functionality for that in paru.. I cant show you rn bcs I am currently on debian but just try paru --help. I believe you can specify repo for a package like this 'chaotic-aur/picom-ibhagwan-git'. although I don't remember.

Read.

Garuda and Chaotic-AUR are mostly maintained by the same people. If something in Chaotic-AUR is broken then it needs to be reported so it can be fixed.

Using Chaotic-AUR is no different to using an AUR helper without reading the PKGBUILD file.

I have been using ungoogled-chromium from the chaotic Aur for some time now, with no ill effects. I believe that the Chaotic Aur is one of the better repositories as it is easy to communicate about packages that need to be rebuilt of updated.

We are even building from their official repository rather than the AUR
