Yes! One minute before I read your post I found that AUR wasn't activated and I then found it immediately. Thank you.

I'd still like to know how to do it manually.

Hello,

Do to do so manually would be something like so:

cd Downloads

 

tar -xvzf torguard-latest-amd64-arch.tar.gz

 

cd torguard-latest-amd64-arch

 

makepkg -s

 

sudo pacman -U *.pkg.tar

 

Regards

Ah, found what it should be on mine:

sudo pacman -U torguard-4.5.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

That fixed it.
