tfenv 2.0!

Also some under the hood improvements to the way this is packaged

  • Versions and the version file remain in /var/lib/tfenv/
  • Actual application is now installed to /opt/tfenv
  • Symlinks to /usr/bin are provided for both tfenv and terraform
  • Once you add your user to the tfenv group, you can manage versions as a non-root user

Please install the keyring for gpg authentications. With the following patch, one can create a file /opt/tfenv/use-gpgv containing trust-tfenv: yes and further installations will check the gpg checksum:

(BTW, why is the mode set to -m555 so that not even root as write permissions?)

@Shamshiel make sure your user is added to the tfenv group and you restart your shell. The group grants permissions to install terraform binaries at runtime via tfenv.

I installed the latest version of this package and I'm running into the following issue:

tfenv install
Installing Terraform v1.5.4
Downloading release tarball from

Downloading SHA hash file from
Not instructed to use Local PGP (/opt/tfenv/use-{gpgv,gnupg}) & No keybase install found, skipping OpenPGP signature verification
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/var/lib/tfenv/versions/1.5.4’: Permission denied
Failed to make directory /var/lib/tfenv/versions/1.5.4

Getting a mkdir: cannot create directory ‘...’: Permission denied error. Any idea why and how to fix it?

Can we get the new 3.0 version also? I'm willing to maintain or co-maintain this package as well

Hi, please can you add arm64 support to the PKGBUILD? Thanks!

@T4cC0re Fair enough! I still haven't encountered the problem, (nor has it managed to create them in /opt) though it's not immediately clear to me why.

T4cC0re commented on 2022-03-16 19:49 (UTC)

@OJFord this is to ensure, that tfenv can be installed system-wide without requiring root permissions to install new versions. The patched target directory is writable to users in the tfenv group, which you can add your own user to.

Considering that it is apparent you did not thoroughly test the version you packaged I removed you as a co-maintainer. I will update the package myself in the coming days.

OJFord commented on 2022-03-16 17:47 (UTC)

@WhiteAnthrax I'm not sure if there's some comments lost here, but certainly I'm lacking some context - what's the motivation for the 'use a separate dir for versions and the default version' sed patch?

Seems inevitably brittle, I'm just not sure it's worth the maintenance burden. Or why it's Arch specific for that matter, is there an upstream issue/PR?

Patch by @ribugent is working, thanks!

@ribugent thanks, the fix worked.
