Installation of AUR package keeps failing

I’ve attempted to install Zotero, which is available in the AUR, via pamac, pacman and the Manjaro XFCE GUI installer. Every attempt has been unsuccessful, although I’m not sure why.

I then downloaded Zotero-6.0.26_linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 from the Zotero website, but I’m not sure how to install it. How can I install this file?

Unpack the files in your home - browse the files using your file manager - locate the documentation - there is often files in the archive describing what to do.

Read the official guide …

And what is the output or error messenges when you run:

pamac build zotero

Please edit your topic title accordingly.

I suggest installing the zotero-bin AUR package instead. It’s the binary release of Zotero rather than having to build it from source with the zotero package.

Yes, I did unpack the archive, and I did read the documentation, but the documentation seemed to refer to Ubuntu. I now realize that I should perhaps have attempted to run the file named “zotero” via sudo ./zotero. But I’ve already installed zotero-bin via the GUI installer, so there’s no need.
