Help with bypassing Arch check in Pamac
Hi guys

I am trying to install printer drivers on my Pinebook Pro but unfortunately thee driver I have found on the AUR is not available for the ARM architecture.

I have done some digging and found this Reddit thread:

One of the comments here say you can bypass the architecture check in pacman by using the -A command and there is still a chance that it will work and I am willing to test it.

Unfortunately I am not currently at the level of being able to use pacman to install something from the AUR so I was wondering whether there was a way to bypass the architecture check on pamac instead?

Kind regards
