HI I’m new to linux and i picked manjaro I’m trying to download google-chrome and everytime i try it says error target not found:google-chrome I’ve tried with other things in the aur but those things don’t work work ether can anyone help me
Google-chrome is not in the official repo, you’ll have to build it with
pamac build google-chrome
PS Firefox is better!
so I did that command and i have too idea what to do now
What is the output?
it says cannot find the fakeroot binary
sudo pacman -S fakeroot and try to build chrome again
does it do that the same thing
thank you it finally worked
And Google tracks eehm thanks you for all your juicy data!
No. Do it right.
Isn’t base-devel installed in every Manjaro ISO? I mean things like sudo and grep are part of base-devel.
If it were, would the OP be missing
I thought Pamac was supposed to take care of it when enabling AUR support, but it appears that’s not the case here, either.
No further questions your honor.
The main problem as I see it is that “base-devel” is in the AUR and not the repo’s so not sure how it could be included in an iso. You could of course have all the individual packages included.
how so ?
base-devel is a group comprised of regular repo packages.
pacman -S base-devel works, and does not pull any AUR package.
and as stated not in manjaro’s repo’s.
Everything is at its place

That’s not it. It’s
base-devel which is a group of repo packages, not the AUR meta package,
meta-group-base-devel. Either way, the same repo packages are installed. See Meta package and package group - ArchWiki and my post above:
Your posts here are completely off-topic. That’s quite enough.

Don’t listen to haters - chrome has some essential features.
I’d say have Firefox (Default), Chrome (for the built in translate), then a safe alternative option like Brave maybe.
However, awareness of software lets us understand that browsers based on Chromium are ALL pandering to Google. Firefox is the only truly free alternative.
