Pamac can't find pgAdmin4 package

I’m new to Manjaro, and I’m trying to install pgAdmin4 (https:// software.manjaro .org/package/ pgadmin4) from pamac.

pamac search pgAdmin4 returns nothing. GUI pamac can’t find it either. Tried pamac update and pamac upgrade but nothing.

uname -a for info:

Linux gabriel-inspiron153511 6.1.49-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Sun Aug 27 23:08:04 UTC 2023 x86_64 GNU/Linux

What am I doing wrong?

Welcome to the forum! :vulcan_salute:

There is no pgadmin4 package in either the repositories or the AUR, although the AUR does have a pgadmin3 package — for postgresql administration tasks. It is however no longer maintained — the package was last updated in November 2020.

If this is the package you want, then it’ll be built from sources on your local machine, so it’ll take some time. And you must also first make sure your system is fully up to date before you do so… :arrow_down:

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu && pamac build pgadmin3

If you really want the pgadmin4 version, then I’m afraid the only option right now is to either build it from sources, which you can download here, or to install the Debian/Ubuntu version by way of debtap from the AUR, but be advised that Manjaro cannot offer any support for that.

In order to install debtap, first update your system as explained above… :arrow_down:

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu

… and then install debtap:arrow_down:

pamac build debtap

… or… :arrow_down:

yay -S debtap

Then, you must download the Ubuntu version of the pgpadmin4 package — this is the 7.5 version, which is the latest for the Debian/Ubuntu platform — from this location and install it using the debtap command — I presume you’ll need to do that with sudo, but I’ve never used this myself, so I don’t know.

Good luck! :crossed_fingers:

Although it is marked as out of date as well:

Or you could use the docker container. But I know nothing about docker, except that I don’t really want to use it.

AFAIK pgAdmin is web-based, so you could install it separatly and manually.

Thanks! Built it from source and it worked.
