    Either install yaourt or packer (both which can access the AUR), and install it. The nomenclature for yaourt or packer is the same. A lot of people don't like the AUR, but for the most part in works for me!!!
    Code:
    yaourt -S xcalib
    That worked.

    I asked on manjaro forums, and now I see you have told me too.


    Thanks.

    Doesn't security updates for debian stable end once the next stable is released (after about 2 years)? LTS offers 5 years of support

    They end one year after the new release, so you have ~3+ years. If wheezy goes stable in May, Squeeze will have a total of 3 years and 3 months of support. Keep in mind squeeze was frozen and in "bugfix only" mode for almost a year before release, so it's a bit different situation than Ubuntu LTS.
