Enabling AUR in Arch Linux, the easy way

If you are in search of the best distro for developers you probably have found in Arch Linux the best distro which suits for your needs. Fast, stable and easy.

However, you might notice that not all software is available to download out of the box. This is because certain software comes from AUR in source code which has to be compiled later.
To enable the AUR and to install and compile the software in just one shot I suggest using “pamac, a package manager for arch based distros.

sudo pacman -S pamac

Now open pamac, go to the preferences and you will find the AUR toggle.

Now you’ll be able to download software like for example android-studio

That’s it!
