Tried to install a duplicate file finder, failed.
"could not satisfy dependencies:
unable to satisfy dependency ‘pygtk’ required by fslint-gui"
OK, pygtk seems to be some python 2 dinosaur, and i can go ahead and find some other duplicate file finder, but how do I stop pamac from trying to install pygtk when I attempt to install other software?
fslint-gui. You probably don’t need this and cannot use without this dependency.
sudo pacman -R fslint-gui
[sudo] password for …
error: target not found: fslint-gui
is it not installed?
Since is an AUR package is not “visible” to
pacman. You need to use:
pamac unistall fslint-gui
This is only true to some extent. Pacman can actually see and remove a AUR package without any problem unless the package is installed manually that is with

pamac remove fslint-gui
Error: target not found: fslint-gui

Multi functional app to find duplicates, empty folders, similar images etc. - GitHub - qarmin/czkawka: Multi functional app to find duplicates, empty folders, similar images etc.
will a fslint replacement let me get past the pygtk issue?
Yes. That’s why I recommended it. From
AUR (en) - pygtk
An identical replacement for
AUR (en) - czkawka-gui-bin which does not need
Not true. AUR helpers are Pacman wrappers and AUR packages are installed by Pacman.
makepkg is part of
Cool, glad you both settled it …
I’ll be honest, since
sudo pacman -S <AUR-package>
always ends with
Error: target not found for me was no point to try
sudo pacman -R <AUR-package> ever.
Pacman cannot access the AUR. When one builds an AUR package either via an AUR helper or via
makepkg, the package is installed with
