Just for clarification, what is the relationship of this package with pamac-gtk. This one seems to have been in the AUR for a longer time while the other one seems to be maintained by Manjaro crew but, other than that, I'm confused about which one to install.

Open issue in for build pamac and plugin in separate package
Issue : Plugin build

  • remove flatpak dependency.
  • remove pamac-flatpak-plugin

separate package is good idea pamac-flatpak-plugin and pamac-snap-plugin, but can't build pamac with support plugin without makedepends flatpak, snapd ... it's not really plugin for me

@Zeph thank you for your job (not kidding)! But there is a problem now. Version 9.4.0-4 brought flatpak dependency. And now it becomes optional. Its okay.

But, flatpak still described as a straight dependency for my pamac setup (after update to 9.4.0-4 and then to 9.4.0-5 without changes to pkgbuild). So I have no flatpak option in pamac, but have flatpak dependency anyway. And when I try to remove flatpak package, it tries to remove pamac as well (as depended on). It becomes wierd. FYI.

Personally, I like to have flatpak and snap enabled also. In manjaro, they have two separate packages, pamac-flatpak-plugin and pamac-snap-plugin. Maybe a solution to satisfy everyone?

V9.4.0-5 : Optional flatpak

Thank you very much.

/I just don't need flatpak

spsf64 commented on 2020-03-31 20:33

I think flatpak is still there, @line 20 :(

Guessing there is no chance of making flatpak an optional dependency? Its something a lot of people will probably never use.

I know it will be difficult as your post install steps would need to check for it somehow.

edit: ignore me, this isn't a binary package... doh!

Pamac 9.4.0-4 last fix + enable flatpak you can activate in settings

Failure to download pending package updates in the background.

in /etc/pamac.conf

Download updates in background


seems to be enabled. This used to download the updates right after checking for available updates (I have check set for 1 hour intervals). It no longer doing the downloads until pamac is opened and an update is requested. Things are working, but I have a slow internet connection and having to wait for all the updates to download seems like a big step backwards. Has anybody else noticed this change in the last few months? cheers
