I have been experimenting with Manjaro for a couple of weeks. Yesterday, in response to my question on this forum, I learned that I could install a commercial program “Beyond Compare” from AUR. This was surprising to me as it is a commercial program and I did not think it was open source. That said, I also tried to install my favorite two panel file manager gnome-commander by the same process.
gnome-commander did not build because of a missing dependency on gnome-vfs (which is rather ancient and obsolete.) This was not entirely unexpected as gnome-commander will not install on RHEL/CentOS 8 nor on Ubuntu 20.04. If in fact it will not install on Manjaro…
Why is the latest version, 1.10.3 in AUR and how did it get there? I have asked the maintainer of gnome-commander if he put it there but I have not yet heard back.
If someone from the Manjaro community put it in AUR and has the magic formula to make it work - I would be grateful to learn how.
