[Gambas-user] My incomplete Manjaro Install - Need expert help

That helps a lot, and I will give it a go after midnight.

However, damn it, I just downloaded the latest image last night.  This shouldn't be necessary.  Looks bad on Manjaro.

I can only hope that it also fixes the "Warning: dependency cycle detected: ", which on a fresh install, to me, is somewhat inexcusable.

So, 1.2 Gig to refresh a 2.0 Gig download from the night before.  Fishy.  It would seem that I would be better off getting a new iso and starting from scratch.

There is no problem here. When you asked pacman to install gambas, it found that your install needed to be updated and so started to do a full system update. System updates occur about once a month and are generally ~300mb in download size. However, a recent update exceeded 1gb, so I'm not surprised that your system needed a 1.2gb download. BTW, there a often smaller updates between system updates, usually for individual packages like Firefox, Chromium, Thunderbird etc 

I'd recommend updating your system before installing Gambas. 

Step 1(optional): Reset your mirrorlist so that the fastest download servers come first in the list. 

sudo pacman-mirrors 

This gives you a mirrorlist containing all manjaro mirrors, ordered by speed. You can limit that list to specific countries or region. 

pacman-mirrors --country-list 

sudo pacman-mirrors --country Germany,France,Austria 

Step 2: Run a system update. 

sudo pacman -Syyu 

If you skipped updating your mirrorlist, you can use: 

sudo pacman -Syu 

Step 3: Install Gambas 

sudo pacman -S gambas3 

Hope this helps.
