i had been missing package groups for a long time.
every time i have read something like “install LXQt group with sudo pacman -S lxqt command”, it did not work in pacui. after a while, i simply implemented package groups.
it has some drawbacks, too:
- “remove packages” option shows you about 130 more packages than you have installed on your system. if you want to know the exact number, you have to choose “reverse dependency tree” option.
- package groups do not have a version number and description (the same as AUR packages), only packages from the manjaro repositories have that. this means, it is possible to confuse package groups with AUR packages.
- the “remove packages” option shows ALL packages groups, even if they are not installed on your system. i have not found a simple way to change that.
