Can't install blender 2.93 from AUR

I’m trying to install the package blender-2.93-git from aur, but it says it’s missing dependencies, but I don’t use CUDA, since I’m using AMD RX 570, I use openCL, how can I ignore these dependencies to install Blender 2.93?

Is there a special reason, you don’t want to install the current version from the mai repository?

There is no point to install from AUR. If you want their LTS version, download it from here and extract the archive where you want to keep it and use their included binary to start it, or edit their provided .desktop file and place it under ~/.local/share/applications/ once you sort the path to the binary …

Then build/install that first if you want the AUR package:

Yes! Blender 3.0 version doesn’t work with openCL, and HIP driver will only be available in june, so I want to go back to the version 2.93 to use Blender with GPU support.

You always help me so clearly with my doubts, I don’t even know what to say. Thank you so much! :grin: :grin:
