I tried to install gnome-system-tools on ArchLinux using pacman .

I've run pacman -Syy before but pacman could not find the package.

Here is my pacman.conf file

#
# /etc/pacman.conf
#
# See the pacman.conf(5) manpage for option and repository directives

#
# GENERAL OPTIONS
#
[options]
# The following paths are commented out with their default values listed.
# If you wish to use different paths, uncomment and update the paths.
#RootDir     = /
#DBPath      = /var/lib/pacman/
#CacheDir    = /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
#LogFile     = /var/log/pacman.log
#GPGDir      = /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/
HoldPkg     = pacman glibc
# If upgrades are available for these packages they will be asked for first
SyncFirst   = pacman
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/curl -C - -f %u > %o
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u
#CleanMethod = KeepInstalled
Architecture = auto

CheckSpace
SigLevel = Never

# REPOSITORIES

[testing]
#SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist


[community]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[multilib]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[core]
#SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[extra]
#SigLevel = PackageOptional
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

#[community-testing]
#SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[community]
#SigLevel = PackageOptional
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[multilib-testing]
#SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[multilib]
#SigLevel = PackageOptional
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Do I miss a repository ?

Thanks for your help.

You should check out the newer gnome-control-center package. –  Herman Torjussen Feb 28 '12 at 17:18

This package doesn't exist, according to the Packages database.

It's weired. Seems like the package have been removed.. Do you know if gnome-system-tools are deprecated ? –  Ben D Feb 28 '12 at 17:06
    
I think it has gone deprecated with GNOME 3, judging from the files on their FTP server. –  Renan Feb 28 '12 at 17:23

Try installing gnome-system-tools from AUR by

yaourt -S gnome-system-tools

Why has the poster's choice of AUR helper been replaced here? It adds nothing to the answer and, arguably, changes the context. If they specify packer, then it should either be left that way or genericized completely. –  jasonwryan Oct 19 '12 at 1:20
    
@jasonwryan it looks like there were two edits and not a simply replacement of packer with yaourt. The first edit embedded the link and removed the detailed packer instructions. The second edit added detailed yaourt instructions. –  StrongBad Oct 19 '12 at 9:47
    
@DanielE.Shub Yes, I read the history. My question was to warlock to prompt some reflection on why {s}he is promoting one AUR helper over another (particularly when the OP's choice is the better one). –  jasonwryan Oct 19 '12 at 18:18
