Install Deb Package On Arch Linux

Warning: This method is highly unsafe and should only be used when there is no other option and you already have an advanced understanding of how certain packages work and certain behaviors that Arch expects. For example, some applications (like Plymouth, Virtualbox, etc.) may require hooks into the kernel that can only be done by editing configuration files and re-building the kernel with those hooks. Even more, using this method does not also install the dependencies of your package.

Then, run the ls command to reveal all of the folders that reside in the data archive inside the Deb package. Keep in mind the names of these folders. cd into each directory and move the contents of these directories to where they belong on the system.

Debtap grabs the metadata available in the .deb file to construct the most faithful Arch package possible to minimize issues and provide relevant information on which dependencies pacman should install in addition to the package itself. This involves a significant amount of tedium beyond simply decompressing a tarball.

Yes! If you have any version of pamac installed, you can run the tar-zst file Debtap generates through your file manager. By choosing pamac as the program to run the file, you can just double-click it just like you would any .deb package in Debian to install it and all of its dependencies automatically.

Is it possible? Yes. Is it a good idea? That depends. You would only really need to do this if the application only exists as a .deb package. It is much more likely that you can just grab the upstream source and write a simple PKGBUILD to install it with pacman.

This method attempts to install the package using the debian packaging format on Arch, which is not recommended due to possible danger of corrupting your installation. If using this method it is recommended to be ready with a rescue disc image of Arch & backup of the user data/space.

A DEB or ".deb" file is essentially an archive containing scripts, configuration files, and other data required to install a program. DEB files are built primarily for use on Debian or Debian-based desktops like Pop!_OS, Ubuntu, and MX Linux, to name a few.

While installing a DEB package on Arch Linux may not be as simple as running a Windows executable, it is certainly not rocket science. The installation is pretty straightforward, and the steps are easy to follow.

The easiest way to install Visual Studio Code for Debian/Ubuntu based distributions is to download and install the .deb package (64-bit), either through the graphical software center if it's available, or through the command line with:

Installing the .deb package will automatically install the apt repository and signing key to enable auto-updating using the system's package manager. Alternatively, the repository and key can also be installed manually with the following script:

The VS Code .rpm package (64-bit) can also be manually downloaded and installed, however, auto-updating won't work unless the repository above is installed. Once downloaded it can be installed using your package manager, for example with dnf:

VS Code ships monthly and you can see when a new release is available by checking the release notes. If the VS Code repository was installed correctly, then your system package manager should handle auto-updating in the same way as other packages on the system.

If you'd like to install Node.js on Linux, see Installing Node.js via package manager to find the Node.js package and installation instructions tailored to your Linux distribution. You can also install and support multiple versions of Node.js by using the Node Version Manager.

If you do find what you need but only have the deb package, you may want to try installing that deb package on your Arch system. There are multiple approaches that you could take to install a deb package on Arch Linux:

The tar.gz you have created wont install because it does not feature the Metadata that pacman needs (as Thrillhouse suggested). Although you can use that package to create a bundle that pacman can work with. Check the Wiki for Informations about PKGBUILDs and makepkg. Time to get your hands dirty, it seems.

To convert a .deb into an Arch Linux package quickly and easily, we must clone the archalien repository to download the latest version of the tool. To do this we must open a terminal and execute the following command:

Hi, dpkg and apt can be installed since the first one does not resolve dependencies , but why install debs if you can use the official repositories packages or use the AUR, also Snap and Flatpak all very easily using Pamac. You can also use debtap as commented @pulsar

I wrote this script in my free time to help people who, for any reason, want to convert a .deb to an Arch Linux package. It works in a similar way with alien (which converts .deb packages to .rpm packages and vice versa), but, unlike alien, it is focused on accuracy of conversion, trying to translate Debian/Ubuntu packages names to the correct Arch Linux packages names and store them in the dependencies fields of the .PKGINFO metadata in the final package. In other words, it won't only create an Arch package with the data of the original .deb package, but also it will try to create a valid and as accurate as possible .PKGINFO metadata file in the converted package. It uses pkgfile and pacman utilities to achieve this accuracy. The final package can be installed like any local Arch Linux package. Debtap is now available on AUR!

Q: What are the minimum requirements to run this script?A: You need to have installed these dependencies: bash, binutils (provides ar utility for extracting .deb package package and readelf), pkgfile, and fakeroot. You must run at least once (preferably recently) "debtap -u" to create/update pkgfile and debtap database (you do this with root privileges).

However, there are some third-party solutions. For example, Termux community provides terminal emulator and Linux environment for Android, as well as own package manager and extensive collection of many precompiled applications. This command in Termux app will install the last available Node.js version:

The Azure CLI is a cross-platform command-line tool that can be installed locally on Linux computers. You can use the Azure CLI on Linux to connect to Azure and execute administrative commands on Azure resources. The CLI on Linux allows the execution of various commands through a terminal using interactive command-line prompts or a script.When you are ready to install the Azure CLI on Linux, it is recommended to use a Linux distribution's package manager. Select the appropriate package manager for your distribution from the options above. If you do not have one of the listed package managers, you may manually install the Azure CLI on Linux by selecting the Install script option.

On SLES 12, the default python3 package is 3.4 and not supported by Azure CLI. You can first follow step 1-3 of the install instruction to add the azure-cli repository. Then build a higher version python3 from source. Finally, you can download the Azure CLI package and install it without dependency.

Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa) and 20.10 (Groovy Gorilla) include an azure-cli package with version 2.0.81 provided by the universe repository. This package is outdated and not recommended. If this package is installed, remove the package before continuing by running the command sudo apt remove azure-cli -y && sudo apt autoremove -y. See Ubuntu package management or ask ubuntu for more information on apt remove.

If you installed azure-cli on Focal without adding the Azure CLI software repository in step 3 of the manual install instructions or using our script, you may encounter issues such as no module named 'decorator' or 'antlr4' as the package you installed is the outdated azure-cli 2.0.81 from the focal/universe repository. Please remove it first by running sudo apt remove azure-cli -y && sudo apt autoremove -y, then follow the above instructions to install the latest azure-cli package.

Some Ubuntu- or Debian-derived distributions such as Linux Mint may not return the correct version name from lsb_release. This value is used in the install process todetermine the package to install. If you know the code name of the Ubuntu or Debian version your distribution is derived from, you can set the AZ_REPO value manually whenadding the repository. Otherwise, look up information for your distribution on how to determine the base distribution code name and set AZ_REPO to the correct value.

It's strongly recommend to install the CLI with a package manager. A package manager makes sure you always get the latest updates,and guarantees the stability of CLI components. Check and see if there is a package for your distribution beforeinstalling manually.

To install Lutris on the Steam Deck, switch to Desktop Mode, open the Discover store then search and install Lutris. To play games from the Steam Deck UI: Select "Create Steam shortcut" during the game installation or right-click on an existing game and choose "Create Steam shortcut". To play games using the controller: - Open Steam settings and in the Controller section open Desktop Configuration - Change the controller configuration to Disabled - Keep the Steam key pressed to control your mouse - The controller will now be accessible in desktop mode

Lutris is available as a tar.xz package. You can run the project directly from the extracted archive but you might not have all features installed such as the browser integration or xboxdrv support. You'll need to make sure you have the necessary dependencies for Python 3 (PyGObject3 and PyYAML). Warning: Please do not use install to install Lutris. It does not fully install lutris, some aspects are handled by the distribution's package manager. Additionally, Python's setuptools do not allow to easily uninstall software installed in such a manner.
