AUR (Arch User Repository) is a community-driven repository for Arch Linux users, it contains packages that are not officially included in the main repositories of Arch Linux.
GitHub Desktop is not officially available in AUR, however, as I mentioned before, you can still use a similar Git GUI client on Arch Linux which is available in AUR.
Here are a few examples of Git GUI clients that you can find in AUR:
You can install these packages by using an AUR helper like yay, trizen, or pacaur.
Here is an example of how you can install GitKraken using yay:
- Install yay by following the instructions on this link: https://github.com/Jguer/yay#installation
yay -S gitkraken
It’s important to note that AUR packages are not officially supported by Arch Linux, and they are maintained by the community, so you should be careful when installing packages from AUR, you should always check the package’s comments, and read the PKGBUILD file before installing, this will help you to identify any issues or dependencies that the package may have.
