How to install aur packages?

I want this zoom package (sorry can’t link sites it’s in aur)
but it says error: target not found: zoom
I used sudo pacman -S zoom.

I found the package through yay but it will show me this:
-> Extracting zoom-5.4.57450.1220_orig_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz with bsdtar
==> Starting prepare()…
==> Sources are ready.
==> ERROR: Cannot find the fakeroot binary.
error making: zoom

I did install sudo pacman -S base-devel as mentioned in another forum.

Didn’t work.
Please help argh my classes lol

pamac build zoom

i might be doing this wrong but…
scheisskerl@ScheisPC ~]$ sudo pacman build zoom
[sudo] password for scheisskerl:
error: no operation specified (use -h for help)
ah it’s pamac lmao

You cant install an AUR package with pacman either use pamac or a AUR helper like yay. You did install the base-devel package so you should be able to build from the AUR.
