Minor upgrade of tkpacman to version 1.9.1. The filter in the file selection box called from "Install package from local file" has been modified from ".pkg.tar.xz" to ".pkg.tar.*". As a result, both packages with file extensions ".pkg.tar.xz" and ".pkg.tar.zst" are shown in the file selection box.

Problem solved with latest versions of TCL and TK. Took some time....

Thanks for the responses, Guys. I'll try dropping back to Tcl/Tk version 8.6.8-3 till the bug gets fixed.

@nfs Apparently a bug report has already been issued against Tk: .

So, I will just wait to see if it gets fixed in the future.

@nfs It is very likely a problem in Tcl/Tk. I have downgraded Tcl/Tk to version 8.6.8-3 on my Arch system. Then the installed packages are coloured green again.

I will try to report it as a bug to Tk, but that will take some time.

@nfs Thank you for notifying me. I hadn't noticed myself. I don't know yet what causes it.

I've noticed that installed packages no longer are colored green. What's up with that? Is there anything I can do to restore that feature?

Version 1.9.0-1 has been uploaded. No new functions have been added. Just some loose ends have been cut off: - "optimize pacman database" was removed because also "pacman" does not provide it anymore - "gksu" was removed because it is no longer in the Arch Linux repositories - "vte" was replaced with "vte3" - Help text was corrected in the area of "partial upgrades" because one of the hyperlinks was no longer functioning.

@marvin Thank you for notifying me. I don't know yet what I can do about it. As far as I can see now, it is only "optimize pacman database" that does not work anymore.

According to the new pacman 5.1 doesn't contain all tools as its predecessor.

A new package pacman-contrib now exists (content of it in post #6 of aboves link).

tkpacman seems to no longer optimize the database. Other commands used in tkpacman might be affacted too.
