--- Quote from: oyim on Thu Nov 08 07:48:18 2018 ---Edited to add: Neofetch is now in the repositories! So it can now be installed with...

--- Code: ---sudo cards install neofetch
--- End code ---


If you don't want to wait on the binary, neofetch can be easily installed on your system.  :)

First, make sure you have the dependencies. Open your terminal, and enter...

--- Code: ---sudo cards install git make
--- End code ---

Next, we want to clone neofetch. The following command will clone the "latest bleeding edge version". So, issue the following command in your terminal to clone neofetch...don't use sudo.

--- Code: ---git clone
--- End code ---

Next, we want to cd into the newly created enter this in your terminal...

--- Code: ---cd neofetch
--- End code ---

Next, enter this in your terminal...

--- Code: ---sudo make install
--- End code ---

When it's finished, run this in your terminal...

--- Code: ---neofetch
--- End code ---

...and you should have the wonderful NuTyX logo (with information) in your this...

Hope that helped!  :)

I followed the same step to install Viewnior but I get following error

saleem [ ~ ]$ git clone
Cloning into 'Viewnior'...

saleem [ ~ ]$ cd viewnior
bash: cd: viewnior: No such file or directory
saleem [ ~ ]$ cd Viewnior
saleem [ ~/Viewnior ]$ sudo make install
make: *** No rule to make target 'install'.  Stop.

does this mean these steps will not work for every package installation?

The basics for compiling would be ;

--- Code: ---cd /patch/of/program/
sudo make install

--- End code ---
but for the whole program to be compiled the developer leaves a readme and an install inside the folder at a glance and follow the instructions, as there may be dependencies too, if you do not have them installed it will generate errors as well.

Indeed, I just looked at the readme file on the github page, and it lists some required dependencies (modules). It also has a link to an installation guide, and the installation steps are different than for neofetch.

hum, ok if you have any questions or problems just post here we help you.
