Do you know of alternative to check-dfsg-status that works on Manjaro?

I was wondering if there is an alternative for check-dfsg-status, program that creates a list only free licencecd Softwares currently installed on users computer.

I’m not aware of this, however, you can use this

pacman -Qi | expac -Q '%n %L'

to get a list of all installed packages and its license.

You can remove open source licenses with

pacman -Qi | expac -Q '%n %L' | sed -Eu '/ +MIT|L?GPL2?|BSD|MPL|APACHE/Id'

(There are more probably and many of the licenses are custom. You need to investigate them invidiually.)

The package freedom from the AUR will do what you want. Its description says that it “conflicts with all non-free Arch packages.”

To install it…: :arrow_down:

pamac build freedom
