The AUR Ubuntu never had

Pacstall will attempt to become the AUR Ubuntu wishes it had. It takes the AUR and puts a spin on it, making it easier to install programs without scouring github repos and the likes.

The list of available packages can be found here.


  • Supports binary, git, appimage, building and .deb packages
  • Accelerated package download using axel (optional)
  • Auto update checks for git packages, so you always get the latest build of your favourite program off the latest commit by the developer
  • Over 175 packages available to install in the official programs repository
  • Ability to install programs from multiple repositories
  • Ability to track Pacstall updates from any fork/branch easily
  • Completions available for bash (ZSH), and fish


You can run the command below to install Pacstall. You can also grab the deb file here but it may be a bit older.

sudo bash -c "$(curl -fsSL || wget -q -O -)"


You can run the command below to uninstall Pacstall.

bash -c "$(curl -fsSL || wget -q -O -)"

Auto completions

Zsh auto completion

Zsh can emulate bash completion scripts by default so all you have to do is add these to your .zshrc or wherever you source things:

autoload bashcompinit
source /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/pacstall
