Setting up astro software under Manjaro (or Arch) Linux

Hi,

Manjaro distribution is currently becoming one of the most popular distributions. According to Distrowatch, it is the most popular distribution and for a good reason: it is very easy to install, provides access to very recent packages and at the same time it is pretty stable. I am running it for about a year and am very happy so far.
So I decided to try to setup all the astronomy software I use under Manjaro. It turned out pretty simple once I figured out few issues. I wrote a script which should do the whole thing without much effort. It installs KSstars/Ekos, PHD2, astrometry, ccdciel, SkyChart, indi and sextractor (which is highly recommended to help with plate solving).
Here is the script:

sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -S --needed kstars breeze-icons yaourt arduino binutils patch cmake make libraw libindi wxgtk2 gpsd gcc

yaourt -Sya --noconfirm ccdciel
yaourt -Sya --noconfirm libindi_3rdparty
yaourt -Sya --noconfirm open-phd-guiding-git
yaourt -Sya --noconfirm skychart
yaourt -Sya sextractor-bin
yaourt -Sya astrometry.net

wget broiler.astrometry.net/\~dstn/4100/index-4107.fits
wget broiler.astrometry.net/\~dstn/4100/index-4108.fits
wget broiler.astrometry.net/\~dstn/4100/index-4109.fits
sudo mv index-410[789].fits /usr/share/astrometry/data

Please let me know what you think.

Excellent! So are those packages available in AUR or something? We can add Arch & Derivatives section to the download section of the site if we get more info.

Some of them are in the main repo like KStars but rest are in AUR.

Hello Jasem - have been waiting for libindi_3rdparty to be available for ARM64 and it looks like you've done it!

I foundarm64 build of libindi 1.9.3~202111251818~ubuntu20.04.1 in ubuntu focal RELEASECan you port this to Manjaro / PKG or make it available on GitHub or as .deb?

Yours in hope and thanks for KStars/INDI and all your work.

Best
