How to find software app, on Arch Phosh?
#1
Hi, I have observed online that Arch on the Pinephone Pro has access to a Software app - faciliting the download of software, similar to the same function on the Mobian OS for Pinephone. However, I have noticed that it is not immediately accessible when Arch is installed.

Could anyone please advise me on the method to find and enable this function (the Software app)?

Thanks.

To install the gnome software center.
Open a terminal and type
Code:
sudo pacman -Sy
sudo pacman -S gnome-software


The software icon should show up on the "desktop" or app drawer

Thanks so much. It's been a while since I've set up a linux distro so this video looks great.

That's just the package I was looking for thank you.  Smile

Be warned that GNOME Software relies on PackageKit, which does not work all that well on Arch Linux. Especially system upgrades with GNOME Software or Plasma Discover are not a good idea.

Is there a software GUI that is suitable for Arch Phosh?

pamac-gtk, though you probably have to get it either from AUR (semi-supported) or from Manjaro repositories (unsupported by Arch), since it is not in the official Arch repositories.
