In this article, I’ll explain how to create a page on the Arch Linux wiki. In addition, I’ll show how to install packages from the AUR using pacman, and I’ll explain how to search the wiki’s pages using wiki-search-html. After all, you’re here because you want to learn more about Arch Linux, right? So, let’s get started!
Installing packages from AUR
AUR is an extension of the apt-get package manager. You can use the AUR to install packages from a wide variety of sources, from apps to games. You can browse and vote on the packages you want to install. All packages are eligible for adoption by the TU, and their vote count is one factor in this process. To help your packages get adopted, consider signing up for the AUR voting feature. The voting option is available from the command line.
If you don’t know how to install packages from AUR, don’t worry! There are many helpers in the AUR that will do all of the hard work for you. Use aurutils, aura, pamac, pikaur, trizen, and pakku. AUR helpers are also useful for finding packages you’d like to install. You can also use pamac, which is a graphical tool that lets you install and remove packages in a simple way.
Using pacman to install packages
If you’re a linux newbie, you may be wondering how to install packages using pacman. As a general rule, the program downloads software to a directory in /var/cache/pacman/pkg. Because pacman stores files in this directory, it is easy to install and downgrade packages without losing their original state. Luckily, the pacman -Scc command is available to clear the package cache and remove unused sync repositories.
However, there are a few situations where you may need to change the reasons for installing software. For instance, you may want to install a package that provides another one. To perform this, you can run pacman -S foo, which will first search for a package that provides foo and then install it. If multiple packages provide foo, you will be presented with a selection prompt. For this reason, it’s helpful to change your installation options before you run pacman.
Using wiki-search-html command to search wiki pages
There are many ways to search the Arch Linux Wiki. If you are using a text-mode browser, you can use a third-party tool to do this. You can also search using the wiki-search-html command. You’ll need a terminal to run this command, but you don’t need to be running Arch Linux to use this command.
The first method involves using the search engine built into the Arch Linux wiki. You can also use your favorite search engine to find specific information. For example, typing in the word ‘usage’ in the search box will return a list of pages about the game. Similarly, many aspects of Linux have in-built documentation. These are known as manpages. To find a Pacman example, you can search for’man pacman’.
Creating a new page on the arch linux wiki
In addition to articles, ArchWiki has a help page. This document outlines common guidelines for article creation. The help page is actively monitored by an ArchWiki team for malicious and unapproved changes. It also provides guidelines for article style and standardization. If you are new to ArchWiki, you should follow the guidelines in Help:Style to ensure that your article is readable and maintained by everyone.
Creating a new page on the ArchWiki can be a bit confusing – there are many different options. Depending on the page’s goal, the process is different for everyone. While you may be the one creating the page, it’s also possible to create a talk page to voice your concerns. Make sure to link to the talk page and include a short description of the topic.
Editing a wiki page
When editing a wiki page, it is important to follow some guidelines. When editing a wiki page, the content should be as clear and concise as possible. You should also include a descriptive summary to facilitate review by other users. Use the Show preview button to proofread and verify formatting before saving an edit. Moreover, minor edits should be marked as superficial or incontestable, so that other users can see them before they commit them. Always remember to leave a non-descriptive signature, as articles are shared works, and not your personal work.
Use proper naming conventions for your articles. Use double quotes for arguments containing spaces. Avoid hiding the # symbol in the source text. If you have a specific kernel version, be sure to label it with a different keyword. Otherwise, it might be hard to update the article. The ArchWiki community is committed to keeping its articles as up-to-date as possible. The only exceptions to this rule are pages that are in the User namespace.
