Can I install software that is just available in debian and not available in AUR?

AUR actually is great. I just come to think of it. What if someone promotes a software in linux mint and I want to try it. I’m good now in manjaro and I don’t want to install LM.

Sure. You just have to write your own PKGBUILD for it if it doesn’t exist yet.

okay. so I need to search on how to make my own PKGBUILD. thanks thanks.

Yes. Read archwiki on PKGBUILD and makepkg. You can also try to find some similar PKGBUILDs in AUR and see how they are done. One example that comes to mind that uses .deb package is packettracer.

you could try AUR (en) - debtap as well to convert .deb to arch packages
