[INFO] Adding ArcoLinux spices to Arch Linux or import gpg key

Post by erikdubois » Wed Jul 11, 2018 5:17 am

In order to be able to access our repo you need to import our gpg key and change pacman.conf

Add the following lines to your /etc/pacman.conf

Code: Select all

#[arcolinux_repo_testing]
#SigLevel = Required DatabaseOptional
#Server = https://arcolinux.github.io/arcolinux_repo_testing/$arch

[arcolinux_repo]
SigLevel = Required DatabaseOptional
Server = https://arcolinux.github.io/arcolinux_repo/$arch
Then you can do a

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -Syyu
Then you will see you can access the repo but you need to have a key.

This is the long version : 93D1CCB2B2421F4B1CD0489774F5DE85A506BF64
This is the short version : 74F5DE85A506BF64

Let us get the key from the keyserver

Code: Select all

sudo pacman-key -r 74F5DE85A506BF64 
If you get an error : Remote key not fetched correctly from keyserver then do these actions

Edit /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/gpg.conf

See what the line about the keyserver says

Mine was keyserver hkp://pool.sks-keyservers.net

I will change that line to

hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyserver.net:443

You can also try to connect to the keyserver with this line of code

hkp://pool.sks-keyserver.net:80

Then you try again

Code: Select all

sudo pacman-key -r 74F5DE85A506BF64 
Hopefully with success this time

If you update now you will still get an error.

Now that we have received the key we still need to trust it in order for pacman to work.

Code: Select all

sudo pacman-key --lsign-key 74F5DE85A506BF64

Now you can install packages from ArcoLinux.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
and only then use the power of our moderators.
