Instructions for installing Apertium and language pairs on Arch Linux.

Installing the released packages

These should all be available through AUR. If you have yaourt installed, installing a language pair like Esperanto-English is simply a matter of

 yaourt -S apertium-eo-en

The following command will work better and this will install the apertium package itself.

#aurget --deps -Sy --nodiscard --noedit --noconfirm --asroot apertium 

which will install the dependencies too. If not, follow the instructions on http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR#Installing_Packages_from_the_AUR. You'll find a list of language pairs in AUR at http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?K=apertium

Installing the newest versions from SVN

Install the prerequisites:

 sudo pacman -S expat gawk libxslt pcre gcc-libs libxml2 icu

(Note: icu is only needed if you need to install vislcg3, which is required for certain language pairs.)

Then just follow http://wiki.apertium.org/wiki/Minimal_installation_from_SVN.
