Antergos Package Assistant – Brand New App Center For Antergos Linux

Antergos is one of my favourite Linux distributions. It is based on the popular Arch Linux, it uses Arch repositories, but it has a user friendly graphical installer called Cnchi where you may for example select the desktop environment you want to install. At the moment it has a graphical application installer called Pamac which lets users install packages (even from AUR). I really like Pamac, but I understand that some people may miss a more appealing app center like the one in Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

The great news is that developers are working on a new app center they call Poodle (however that’s not the final name for it, it’s just a codename they use). It is going to be more app-centric than Pamac. The sad news is that there’s still a lot of developement to be done before they release it, but you can make it happen faster if you donate a few bucks to the developers.
