Does anybody know how to install QGIS master on Manjaro using Octopi? I've added https://aur.archlinux.org/qgis-git.git (see https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/qgis-git/) in the respository editor but this hasn't helped.

QGIS is available after clicking on the alien icon but the installation fails (ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build qgis-git.).

  • You should probably ask this question on manjaro's forum. It is quite specific to the distro. I'd have answered you there! Glad to see another qgis user. Cheers

Since qgis-git is listed in the AUR, isn't indexed by pacman, and is accessed via yaourt usually, you'll need to click the alien icon to the left of the search bar to to enable "yaourt mode". Enter your search term and you should then be able to install qgis-git.

Re: build failure, have you tried:

  1. installing all required (and important optional) packages, and
  2. installing a different version (e.g. straight qgis on AUR)?

BTW, qgis rather than qgis-git is the better maintained development master on AUR right now.

  • QGIS is available now, but the installation fails. I've edited my question. Commented Aug 1, 2016 at 8:27

You can use ArchGeoTux unofficial Arch Linux repository, without having to compile the packages:
