Former 'micro' was a binary as well, that's why it was merged into 'micro-bin'. The best way to build it from sources is to have a working golang environment already (e.x. GOPATHS exported, libraries etc.), otherwise setting this up from the beggining is a pain in the a*. Downloading 60MB of go package (300MB extracted) to compile binary less than 10MB? There is no interest for me to do it to be honest.

For all of you not willing to install binaries, the 'micro' package name is free to use, so everyone can adopt that package and maintain it. Feel free to do it, in a way you like it (i.e. from sources, no binary though).

micro-bin is what it is, a binary.

Good call caltlgin, done!

I'm wondering if you would consider adding the micro.desktop file and the micro.1 to future packages. The files are provided in the source tree. https://github.com/zyedidia/micro/tree/master/assets/packaging

This should be fixed by the next update then. Thanks for letting me know.

@TheCoder3156 I don't know, ask upstream or use (AUR)micro and compile it in the way you need. This bin is compiled by them.

Could this be recompiled with a clean cache to prevent this issue?

@MarcusE1W there are binaries compiled for different architectures, but with no support from Arch Linux, so there is no place for such in the AUR. i686 exists in PKGBUILD for historical reasons (previous maintainer) and should be removed, but let's leave it this way. For other architectures the best way would be asking your distro maintainers to adopt it into repositories or modify PKGBUILD with your aurhelper before install.

There are quite a few more architectures available for the automatic binary build. Maybe they could be added to the script ? e.g. ARM aarch64

@muesli , if you're upto this then file a request.

Would you mind transferring the package to me? I don't like to install binary packages on my system, so I'd maintain the self-compiled package here.
