How to Install Homebrew on Manjaro

Steps required to install Homebrew on Manjaro Linux

Steps

  1. Install base-devel

     pacman -Syu # CAUTION: this updates the whole system
     pacman -S base-devel
    
  2. Run the installer script

     sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Linuxbrew/install/master/install.sh)"
    
  3. Set brew environment variables

     [ -d /home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew ] && eval $(/home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew/bin/brew shellenv)
     
     # You most likely want to add the above line to your shell startup file as well.
    
  4. Make brew doctor happy

     brew doctor
     
     # In case it complains about the linked directory
     mkdir -p /home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew/var/homebrew/linked
     chown -R $(whoami) /home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew/var/homebrew/linked
     
     # Ignore the warning about python being symlinked to python3. This is the default behavior in ArchLinux/Manjaro and chaning the symlink is dangerous.
    
  5. Vendor-install ruby

     brew vendor-install ruby
    
  6. Install gcc (as recommended by the installer script)

     brew install gcc

Not sure what you mean by number 3, but that depends on your shell. For bash, you can add it to your bash startup files.

If you in new version on Manjaro get an error, try adding the libxcrypt-compat package. It helped in my case
