Install pal command line calendar

It shows in the AUR repository site but not under pacman. I have a .rpm of it if that is installable. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

pacman does not work with the AUR.
(pamac can if you enable it)

https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository

And for more general package management

https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Main_Page#Software_Management

It is very simple to install … just please read the introduction/tutorial.

Thanks for the speedy response, but I ran into a problem. Did I use the correct method to quote the terminal output?

I dont know … it looks like you missed parts of the output during copying.

The pal package on the AUR hasn’t been updated since 2015-06-17. There is pal-git which you could try

pamac build pal-git

Does this help?

I get the same error as from “pamac build pal”.

same output with yay on arch :point_down:

i guess something is wrong with pal only. it was last updated in 2015 and pal-git was last updated in 2018.

you might want to give khal a try :wink:

The problem with switching to another application is transferring all my data from pal. I tried that with calcurse and it failed. I’m not too keen to spend a long time typing in my data yet once again.
