Hey @deepu105--

It looks like pamac is trying to install this package as the root user, which when run is attempting to write something in /root/ (for which your current user does not have permission. This is probably unintended and undesirable. While I'm not personally familiar with pamac-- many of the AUR helper utilities activley discourage (or in the case of utilities like YAY-- flat out reject) any use as root.

Does your installation work without using sudo?

Unable to install this package. I'm new to Arch ecosystem, started with Manjaro and when running sudo pamac install google-cloud-sdk-gke-gcloud-auth-plugin I get the below error

OK, I found the issue with my config, I added USE_GKE_GCLOUD_AUTH_PLUGIN=True in my .bashrc but I forgot to export it, so with export USE_GKE_GCLOUD_AUTH_PLUGIN=True, it works like a charm.

Bluesboy commented on 2022-06-15 17:23 (UTC)

For those who still getting deprecation messages even after you installed this plugin, you need to create environment variable USE_GKE_GCLOUD_AUTH_PLUGIN with True value and after that renew k8s config with gcloud container clusters get-credentials <cluster_name> --region <region> after that everything should be fine.

Here is the output with community/kubectl

With aur/kubectl-gke-stable-bin I don't have this issue but maybe it's only because it's an old version (1.21.13) and warning is not managed.

And I have installed gcloud with aur/google-cloud-sdk.

rew1red commented on 2022-06-14 14:05 (UTC)

That's interesting, I'm using kubectl version 1.24.1-1, and not the google issued version.

For those having an issue, what version of kubectl do you have installed?

gromez commented on 2022-06-14 07:49 (UTC) (edited on 2022-06-14 08:22 (UTC) by gromez)

I had an issue with kubectl even with the plugin installed, it seems you must use kubectl from Google too.
Replace kubectl with kubectl-gke-stable-bin does the trick.

I'm having this error when trying to reconfigure the kubeconfig:

gcloud container clusters get-credentials my-cluster --project=my-project --zone europe-west1-b
Fetching cluster endpoint and auth data.
CRITICAL: ACTION REQUIRED: gke-gcloud-auth-plugin, which is needed for continued use of kubectl, was not found or is not executable. Install gke-gcloud-auth-plugin for use with kubectl by following

But the packages are installed correctly:
