Activating the [obcommunity] Repository

To enable the [obcommunity] repository and start benefiting from packages signed by obcommunity, follow these steps:

Look for the new package 'obcommunity-keyring' in the [obcommunity] repository. You must install this package to take advantage of the signatures on packages from this repository.

Edit the '/etc/pacman.conf' file, uncomment the lines related to the [obcommunity] repository and modify the SigLevel field as below.

SigLevel = Never
Server =$repo/os/$arch/

Install the 'obcommunity-keyring' package:

pacman -Sy obcommunity-keyring.

Edit the '/etc/pacman.conf' file again and change again the 'SigLevel' field.

SigLevel = DatabaseOptional
Server =$repo/os/$arch/

Following these steps should allow you to install packages from the [obcommunity] repository and utilize their package signatures.

Thanks for your attention
