Remote PC not avilable Manjaro

I couldn’t find any option to install and use Remote PC (www.remotepc. com) and Anydesk applications in Manjaro, it would be helpful if some can guide me to learn how to install such missing software’s.
I tried yay AUR Helper (tecmint. com/install-yay-aur-helper-in-arch-linux-and-manjaro/) but stuck with the error

…/gopath/pkg/mod/!jguer/go-alpm/v2@v2.0.6/handle.go:541:10: could not determine kind of name for C.alpm_option_get_architectures

while running makepkg -si

Seems there are only DEB and RPM packages… and no AUR Package which converts it… Will be a bit difficult for a newbe. But in general as I see it is a electron app. Just download the DEB package extract the data.tar.xz and inside the folder opt/remotepc just run the binary in the terminal:

cd path/to/opt/remotepc/

That is easy, since there is native app for linux:

pamac build anydesk-bin

(pamac, the default package manager on Manjaro, has also support for AUR, you just need to enable it)


Bleahg, I made a PKGBUILD and services.install for it, but it’s a very crude method of treating the .deb archive “as is”. :woozy_face:

$ systemctl status remotepc

I really don’t understand what remotepc offers over readily available alternatives, but to each their own! :man_shrugging: If you want to give this a shot, PLEASE READ EVERYTHING in the text. The two files are pasted as a single entry into (link below).

I rushed it, and it’s not something I’d submit to the AUR.

It’s a pity when these companies don’t include a tarball or zip with installation / packaging instructions. Pity they only offer RPM or DEB. :confused: I am running on sleep deprivation, couldn’t sleep last night, long story…

With the two files in the same folder,


Followed by,

pamac install remotepc-bin-4.4.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

To emphasize the same point again: READ EVERYTHING in a PKGBUILD and especially the .install files which contain pre- and post- install and remove scripts!

ADDENDUM: A handful of extra config files are created by the root user and remain as residual files, which is why /opt/remotepc is removed post-install. The user has their own config files under $HOME/.config/remotepc (as is expected), but I’m not sure what the other config files are under /opt/remotepc/


love u both :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: , thank you so much, its a great inspiration from u both, i never experienced such fast support from any other open source communities.
I got both RemotePc and Anydesk up and running

I really don’t understand what remotepc offers over readily available alternatives

Since our organization is currently working in completely Work From Home mode due to Covid Pandemic , after testing out many other alternatives we end up with RemotePc as the most relatable for continuous working
