zh-cn:Graphical pacman frontends See AUR helpers for the main article.

Warning: None of these tools are officially supported by Arch Linux, therefore it is recommended to become familiar with the manual build process in order to be prepared to troubleshoot problems on one's own.

The list includes full featured GUI frontends, informational tools, and a variety of system tray notifiers. The list also includes categories for GTK2 based and Qt based software.

X11

  • tkPacman — GUI front-end for pacman. Depends on Tcl/Tk and X11 but neither on GTK+, nor on QT. It only interacts with the package database via the CLI of 'pacman'. So, installing and removing packages with tkPacman or with pacman leads to exactly the same result.
  • Browse packages available in repositories
  • Browse installed packages
  • Many ways to filter packages (word, group, repo, upgrades, orphans, explicit, foreign, fileowner)
  • Display detailed information for packages
  • Display list of files belonging to installed packages
  • Refresh package database
  • Full system upgrade
  • Install a package from a local file
  • View pacman.log file
http://sourceforge.net/projects/tkpacman || tkpacmanAUR

GNOME/GTK+

  • Pamac — A DBus daemon and Gtk3 frontend for libalpm written in Vala
https://github.com/manjaro/pamac/ || pamac-aurAUR
  • Search, browse and install/un-install Arch packages including the AUR
  • Build and update your AUR packages in a integrated terminal using yaourt
  • Offers a tray icon with configurable periodic refresh and updates notifications
  • PkgBrowser — Application for searching and browsing Arch packages, showing details on selected packages.
  • Search and browse Arch packages including the AUR
  • Purely an informational application that cannot be used to install, remove or update packages
  • By design, is an accessory to CLI package management via pacman
  • Further details on use via manual accessed from help menu

KDE/Qt

  • AppSet — Advanced and feature rich GUI front-end for Package Managers. AppSet has the following features:
  • Software sections (games, office, multimedia, internet etc.)
  • Shows homepages for selected packages in an embedded web browser
  • Shows distributions news with an embedded feed reader
  • Upgrades, installs and removes packages
  • Shows available upgrades with a Tray Icon
  • Updates database periodically
  • Informs about dependencies (for example when trying to remove a package needed by others)
  • Cache clean command (to free disk space)
  • Intelligent launcher that uses what is already installed to get administrative privileges (by searching for kdesu, gksu or at last for an xterm where it starts with a sudo command)
  • Now with AUR support with Packer as backend
AppSet needs only QT libs as dependence for installation. It can be used in any desktop environment. Currently only works for Archlinux using pacman.

  • Octopi — Powerful Pacman frontend written in Qt. Features include:
  • LOW in resource consumption (including memory)
  • FAST
  • Supports Cinnamon, KDE 4.x, XFCE, LXDE, LXQt, MATE, Openbox and TDE
  • Systemtray icon providing notifier support
  • Pacman sync database, system upgrade and clean cache support
  • AUR support via yaourt or pacaur
  • Install/Re install/Upgrade/Remove selected packages – watching the output of these commands on demand – in a trasaction based abstraction
  • View the contents of installed packages (including opening and editing its files)
  • View the description of packages in tooltips, just moving the mouse over them
Octopi is based upon Qt. If you have pacaur or yaourt installed you must click on the green alien's head icon next to the search box to search for and install packages from the AUR.

  • yaourt-gui — Designed for new users who want to start using Arch Linux. Written in Bash, it offers a GUI from terminal to the common tasks of yaourt and pacman.
