Install Packer in Archlinux

Packer is a wrapper for Arch linux's package manager Pacman and Arch User Repository (AUR). Pacman can not install packages from AUR. This tool helps you do just that.

:$ sudo pacman -S base-devel fakeroot jshon expac git

Get PKGBUILD

:$ wget https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/plain/PKGBUILD?h=packer

Rename the downloaded file.

:$ mv PKGBUILD\?h\=packer PKGBUILD

Run makepkg on the PKGBUILD
