cower package must be rebuilt

Hi guys!

Try to run cower:

$ cower
cower: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

System is up to date:

$ sudo pacman -Syu
[sudo] password for hatred: 
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
 multilib is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
 there is nothing to do

Cower located in Extra repository:

$ pacman -Ss cower
extra/cower 18-1 [installed]
    A simple AUR agent with a pretentious name

confirmed cower-18-1 in unstable

And cower is not in Manjaro gitlab, AUR or Arch repo - so I guess it will be removed from the repo.

Pamac is recommended instead

pamac build pkg-name

Thanks for info. Cower was used by me for ask AUR package information. Not for build.

You can use pamac for the same thing.

If you are relying on a specific output or formatting you can easily recreate it using python and pamac.

Pamac properties and methods are described in the file


An Arch developer suggest to use a different tool, that is actively maintained in AUR.

Thanks, currently I solve my task (AUR packages integrity check hook that runs after pacman update process completion) with pamac info --aur. But, seems auracle works more quickly!
