IMO this whole part should just be removed now that community have been seperated from aur.

makepkg -s

pacman -U foo.pkg.tar.xz
The [community] repo is enabled by default in {{ic|pacman.conf}}. If disabled/removed, it can be enabled by uncommenting/adding these two lines:

Any typos would have to be fixed of course :p <br>

Is community still disabled by default in abs.conf btw?

Installing Packages

The wiki suggests using

makepkg -s

and then

pacman -U foo.pkg.tar.xz

I recently, on another wiki page, came across the -i option for makepkg which seems to make the separate pacman command unnecessary. Is this actually the case? Or is there a reason not to use the makepkg -i option?
-- Hundovir (talk) 12:38, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

It's unnecessary, but -i is not necessary either, and the point is to actually educate people on how it works, they can find the faster ways later.

Thanks Kyrias, that makes sense. Hundovir (talk) 13:30, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
