I have been a manjaro mate user for quite sometime and I have been able to get the system working to my liking.
Today, I tried to install ffdiaporama from AUR using yay and it failed with the following error messages.
> error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)

I tried to remove x264, but I could as it was used by ffmpeg, libopenshot and gst-plugins-ugly. If I try to remove them, I get more dependency errors.
Can someone help me on how to address the conflicting files issue when installing ffdiaporama?
Well, IMHO the AUR (en) - ffmpeg21 package should not overwrite the official repository ffmpeg package, but since someone else did that package i can only point you to their page and probably the packager should be notified to avoid that …
I can’t recommend overwriting the files.
