make: *** [Makefile:166: all] Error 2 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Aborting... -> error making: miktex-exit Satus 4 -> Failed to install the following packages. Manual intervention is required: miktex - exit status 4

Ermm, what manual intervention exactly?

@jolitp @zeeshanali1993

The cause of the "No graphical sudo frontend is available" error lies in the default installation path. A sluggish fix is to add the following to your "~/.bashrc" (or whatever is your shell) config file:

export PATH="/opt/miktex/bin:$PATH"

The sudo fronted will still be broken, but you will be able to launch the miktex-console as administrator by executing the following:

sudo miktex-console --admin

@Richardk2n - You're right, texmaker depends on texlive-basic instead of texlive-bin, my initial comment was therefore wrong and it is indeed more complicated. Nontheless, I do wonder, if and how it would be possible to resolve dependencies to texlive packages without requiring manual intervention.

Richardk2n commented on 2024-01-23 17:16 (UTC)

@mhdry Wouldn't the fact that texlive is split into multiple packages cause issues with that? For your example: texmaker depends on texlive-basic which depends on texlive-bin Making miktex conflict with texlive-bin would still lead to texlive-basic getting installed, would it not?

Just curios because I have a fake package installed that is set to conflict with texlive to alert me if I accidentally install it. I would love to have a better solution.

Could you please consider adding:

provides=(miktex texlive-bin)
conflicts=(miktex texlive-bin)

to PKGBUILD, as it is done in miktex-git (AUR)? Packages like texmaker depend on texlive-bin, I don't see the need to install both MiKTeX and TeX Live at the same time but it's rather annoying having to invoke pacman --assume-installed texlive-bin. (By that, of course, I mean, I'm rather lazy and forget when installing MiKTeX...) Is there any other reason why you've left this out?

@Zorn That worked, thanks a lot.

@airaqi: The problem is that, probably in the last hours, Christian Schenk has modified some sources on GitHub (a few days ago everything worked fine). The current md5sum of miktex-23.10.tar.gz is 95ec540a81562b64c2dc97fd173307b9 and not 8c91a0e6d8e22ed346f41cbd47632e0a. To solve the problem you need to download the PKGBUILD, modify md5sum inside it, build the package with makepkg by installing the necessary dependencies by hand. Sorry, no need to install the necessary dependencies by hand; is sufficient to use

makepkg -i -c -r -s

after editing PKGBUILD

Download fails for the 23.10 update with error:
