    Manjaro - pacman

    Hello,

    I though that I would install TOR.

    Octopi tells me that the tor in the repo is version 0.3.2.10-1

    The TOR website gives the latest version as 7.5.3, and now 9,0a5.

    I thought I would check using pacman

    I typed pacman -s tor. The -s is not recognised.

    Can any one comment on the -s, and on the disparity between the tor versions. It is almost as if tor in the repo, is not TOR the privacy programme.

    Thanks

    The 's' option should be a capital letter 'S'

    Code:
    sudo pacman -S mousepad
    Tor broswer is apparently not in the Manjaro repos. tor in the repositories is an unrelated package. You will have to get the browser elsewhere.

    sudo pacman -S tor works. I am sure that you are right. But how do you know that the tor in the repo is not the onion router and with its own browser. Evidently --search is also an option. I found pacman --search, or --Search seems invalid!

    It is probably best to get the bundle from TOR

    No, I think I was actually wrong. I looked again more carefully and that package must be something related to a (the?) Tor browser. The brief description in Manjaro's 'Add/Remove Software' application calls it an 'anonymizing overlay network' and doesn't use the term 'browser' or 'web browser' so I assumed (wrongly) it was unrelated. I gather that the Tor Browser is the Tor Project's custom browser configured to use the tor package. So the package (tor) is not by itself a browser, and the Tor browser is not in the repositories. There is a link to the Tor project in Manjaro's 'Add/Remove Software' screen for tor so that seems to confirm it.

    Perhaps have a look at the AUR to get the latest and greatest (and everything in between). I personally like to use pamac and I am not well versed in the other package managers (and as I am not currently using Manjaro I can't have a look myself).
