What is command to install Git on manjaro linux?
sudo pacman -S git
pamac install git
I will also add that if you want to use command-line and search for a package then you can use
pacman -Ss git
then after you find your correct package...
sudo pacman -S packagename
pamac worked. Thanks!
sudo kept asking me for a sudo password
Hi cscs I am still struggling .. but making progress!
which it should.
sudo is required to 'elevate priveleges' and asks you a password to see if you have rights..
(some applications are 'smarter' and ask you even if you do not use
sudo .. but the same thing is happening)
Such things should be asked for anything interacting with the system or root (
As far as I know, so does
pamac. I would think it would be bad if it didn't.
Do you not know the password?
The password to log into manjaro does not work using sudo.
Pamac worked fine.
pamac is polkit compliant.
[which would mean it more dynamically accepts users and groups]
pacman is a bit more old-school.
[also if you at some point entered the correct password then
sudo wouldnt bother you from within the same terminal for 5 minutes or so]
But yes - in some cases you may have set an admin/sudo password differently from your user password.
um... as a Linux user... if
sudo isn't working... you're gonna have to figure out why because
sudo is usually used a lot...
And yes @realmain is correct .. if you cannot access
sudo then you need to figure that out ...
Tracking it down now..
sudo is not needed for Pamac CLI, and Pamac CLI wont work if you try to install a AUR package with
sudo pamac build.
As cscs said, it uses polkit to get elevated privileges when required. You get a prompt that is similar to the usual dialog box you get when a GUI program needs elevated privileges. See this example.

(Yes, polkit is usable in a command-line interface. You get a similar thing if you use
systemctl without sudo in TTY.)
