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.


  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.
