Manjaro Linux - How to install Hugo Extended?

Hi All

I just switched to Manjaro Linux and want to install Hugo Extended without using Snap.

The repository for Manjaro only contains the standard version of Hugo and using the Snap version imposes security restrictions that won’t satisfy my needs.

Has anybody done this before on here?

If so, please kindly let me know the steps required in doing so.

Thank you in advance for any help that you can give.

I think you can just just grab your appropriate release.

(Find the extended install packages at the end of the page).

Here’s something you might try:

Download the .tar.gz tarball of the latest release from here:

Then extract the Hugo binary from that tarball into something like ~/bin/

Then add ~/bin to your $PATH

Enjoy Hugo without having to muck around with this distribution, package, and/or root access.

If you have access to /usr/local/bin, use that instead maybe. If not, make a ~/bin or ~/.bin and put your binaries there.

I hope that helps.

Yeah, just do a git pull to keep up to date. Good thinking. :+1:

Thanks, guys, for all your help. It is very much appreciated.

Was using Mint previously, and still do, and was installing from a .DEB but am also using Manjaro just lately, hence the lack of familiarity.

This really is a great forum and Hugo is an awesome product. Great to be part of such a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful community. Good to see some Linux people on there too.
