how to install third party software please suggest…
hi, enable the AUR repo in software, then you’ll find teamviewer and anydesk there.
@jatinsingh Here are some of the options I know:
- Download the tar.gz files and install them if it is packaged that way.
- Install 3rd party apps through AUR and use AUR wrapper called yay to install the packages. There are a couple of things you need to keep in mind before installing the packages from AUR as it is essentially a repo where packages are added by people or the end users. Not the Arch developers. I have listed somethings I keep in mind while installing an AUR package here, have a look. You can install the apps by enabling AUR through pamac which is the GUI frontend for the pacman package manager. Pamac is already installed in your system.
- Install applications and other proprietary softwares through flatpak packages from flathub.org. You’ll need to install Flatpak to your system before installing apps from flathub.org.
- Install snap (snapd package) which is similar to flatpak. Once snap (snapd package) is installed in your system, you can install snap packages from https://snapcraft.io/store.
Majority of the proprietary 3rd party apps are available as Snap or Flatpak packages (Slack, gitkraken, Visual Studio Code, Spotify). I would prefer a snap or a flatpak package as they are more likely to be better maintained (in a good amount of cases they are mailntained directly by the vendors!) compared to AUR unless you have a peculiar taste for 3rd party apps.
Hope this helps.
