How do you know how to install a package?

i want to install this aur package
how do i find out the package name and what commands do i need

If you click on the link "Show PKGBUILD" in the box on the right, it will take you to a page that shows you the name of the project, i.e. gpointing-device-settings. :arrow_down:

pamac build gpointing-device-settings


  1. That’s pamac, not pacman.
  2. pamac must be executed as a normal user, not with sudo.

will it always be this for aur packages?
pamac build package-name

That is correct, yes.
