Include blivet-gui in the Manjaro repository

I would like to see the graphical LVM manager blivet-gui included in the Manjaro repository. It is in the Fedora repository - we should have it. The AUR version is flagged as out-of-date.

Latest releast is 2.3.0 on Aug 8
AUR version is 2.1.14 and flagged out of date.

Thanks for considering!

Please read:

By the way, I just orphaned the AUR package so you can adopt it and update yourself if you wish. :wink:

Yes, I think it is unique. I consider it a gparted for lvm. Currently, there is no way to manage LVM except using terminal commands that I am aware of for gnome desktop. If there is, I can’t identify it.

I am not familiar with programming languages, so am not qualified to maintain anything.


Bumping the pkgver and updating the checksums does not require programming knowledge.

A PKGBUILD is a shell script containing the build information required by Arch Linux packages.

Won’t implement.

This would require importing multiple AUR packages:

  • blivet-gui
  • python-blivet
  • python-pid
  • libreport
  • libselinux
