About Arch Linux

Arch Linux is a free, open-source Linux distribution that follows principles of simplicity, modernity, pragmatism, user centrality, and versatility. One of the most prominent Arch Linux features is the AUR repository. It contains package descriptions that allow users to compile a package from the source. There are several installation options available in Arch Linux. You can compile Desktop Editors from the Git Clone repository manually or by utilizing the AUR helpers. Also, you can install Desktop Editors as a snap package.

Installing dependencies

To install AUR packages, you need to have base-devel and Git packages installed on your system. If they are not yet installed on your computer, open the terminal and run the following command:

sudo pacman -S --needed base-devel git

Note! It is not the official ONLYOFFICE package. The package has been delivered by dbermond. For more information, view the maintainer`s profile.

Manual installation

  1. Clone the onlyoffice-bin repository:
    git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/onlyoffice-bin.git
