EAR - Editicalu Archlinux Repository

This repo contains most of my AUR packages and some other ones in prepackaged and compiled form. Some of them take quite some time to compile. The binaries are daily generated and signed by the GitLab CI.

Warning! GitLab has put new restrictions on the use of their CI. Starting July 1st 2022, limits on the use will be reduced significantly. Thanks to that, I will have no minutes to give to the EAR. I will not apply for the extra benefits, as I don't believe the project to be in line with the requirements put forth. To make sure you don't stay with any outdated dependencies, I will delete all packages from the last build (and include only 'dollar', to be able to create a final package. Later on, I will completely delete the EAR (or maybe do something self-hosted). Source code will remain available.


  1. Download our GPG key by going by running pacman-key --recv-keys ear@wardsegers.be or downloading it here and adding it using pacman-key --add ~/Downloads/signingkey.asc

  2. Sign the key locally to indicate that you trust it using pacman-key --lsign-key ear@wardsegers.be.

  3. Add the ear repository to your pacman installation by adding the following to /etc/pacman.conf:

    SigLevel = Required
    Server = https://ear.wardsegers.be/$arch

  4. Done! Running pacman -Syu should show the ear as a repository.

Uninstall the repository

  1. Delete the section for the ear from your /etc/pacman.conf
  2. Run pacman-key --delete ear@wardsegers.be to delete your signature. This will make sure that you don't trust our key anymore.

Packages installed from the ear will remain installed. Your package manager will probably use the AUR for the package updates.


You can run pacman -S --list ear to list the available packages.
