Comments about Pamac as a Alternative to OctopiAlmost everyone thinks Pamac is a great Octopi alternative.
It can list pacman and AUR packages at the same time.0
Pamac and Octopi are both GUI ways of interacting with pacman, the package manager in Arch and Manjaro Linux distros. Both are excellent, but Pamac is probably the more user-friendly by a small margin. Octopi comes with Manjaro's KDE Plasma version; Pamac with the XFCE, Mate and other GTK-derived desktop environments.-1Guest
PAMAC is better laid out and has some very practical features missing from Octopi, such as showing history of installed/removed packages and the ability to tell it to ignore updates for some packages. I suggest viewing some YouTube clips to get an idea of which interface is more user-friendly also, i prefer PAMACs.0
