"error: target not found:" When trying to install any software in the AUR

Hello,

I’m trying to install ungoogled-chromium on Manjaro, so I simply type

sudo pacman -S ungoogled-chromium

type in my password and then I get an error:

error: target not found: ungoogled-chromium

I’m confused, because the software is present in the AUR.

I try with various other software, like Google Chrome, teamviewer, spotify and I get the same error. I typed:

sudo pacman -Syu

To update my system, but I was already up to date.

I don’t know what to do next…

pamac build ungoogled-chromium

It’s an AUR package you need to install those with pamac build or an AUR helper like yay.

Seeing someone getting rid of google fills my heart with joy.

Thank you for your answer, the install time is taking a very long time. Not to be rude, but more than 2 hours (probably 12 hours, If I continue at this pace) for installing a web browser is a bit long…

That’s because you are building the browser from source. Usually when I install a package from the AUR I look if there is a bin version which is a prebuilt binary. There is no ungoogled-chromium-bin available :slightly_frowning_face:

Chromium could take 6 hours on a decent machine. It would be best to build it overnight when you’re not using your computer.
