Use the trust command provided by the p11-kit package:

sudo trust anchor --store ~/my-ca-cert.crt

I cannot find anything on the Arch wiki about installing ca certificates. There was a news update in 2014. The certificate needs to be added to /etc/ca-certificates/trust-source/anchors/ and must have a .crt extension. Then run trust extract-compat. Details of the process can be found with man 8 update-ca-trust.

  • I have already tried this but it produces no results – LinuxSailorTech Nov 27 '17 at 10:04
  • Try to append your cert to /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt. For me, cat /etc/squid/ssl_cert/squid.crt >> /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt did the trick. – Fabio Montefuscolo Jan 28 '18 at 0:42
