Hi, am I the only one not able to see the AppStream data?

Update: Nevermind, installing the last update fixed it for me :P

Compilation errors related to latest vala are now fixed. Thank you @Zeph for maintaining this AUR version!

Regarding latest compilation errors they are common in both pamac and pamac git: "...The name child' does not exist in the context of GLib.Object..."

This happens due to Vala being auto-updated to 0.56.11-1 in Arch extra repo and this new version breaks pamac compilation. The issue is tracked on pamac Gitlab upstream:


  • If vala is already installed (maybe as a dependency for other packages) in your system, you may very carefully downgrade it temporarily to 0.56.10 only for pamac to be built. Then you may update it back to 0.56.11-1

  • If vala is not preinstalled you can explicitly install it and then downgrade to 0.56.10 only for pamac compilation. Afterwards you may remove it since it is a build-only dependency. Repeat this cycle until the issue is fixed on pamac upstream.

@Daerun I have the same errors.

Because Pamac now use GTK4, you need to run this command each time you change your theme to use the Dark version of your GTK4 theme :

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface color-scheme 'prefer-dark'

For thoose Pamac make a long time to load and when clicking web link, i found the solution.

That's because i was xdg-desktop-portal-gnome installed but i'm on XFCE.

So i removed it, but leave xdg-desktop-portal-gtk is needed for XFCE, and it solve the problem.

PROBLEM : Pamac is long to load, and to open links.

SOLUTION : install xdg-desktop-portal, plus only the xdg-desktop-portal-xxx you need.

I got it fixed! You need to install appstream package.

sudo pacman -S appstream

The think a maintainer needs to add appstream to PKGBUILD.
