Octopi

Score 59%
Description:

This is Octopi, a powerful Pacman frontend using Qt (4/5) libs, compatible with Antergos, Arch Linux, ArchBang, Chakra, KaOS, Manjaro, mooOS and Netrunner Rolling.

You'll need a privilege escalation tool to use it, once running it as root will not work. Octopi supports kdesu and gksu for that.

Enjoy!

I would like to use Clearlooks as far as possible. But even with your suggestion, there is still green color with Octopi:

Hi,
You can click over the repository column, so it'll sort the package list by it.
When you start Octopi again, it'll remember your settings.
Bye.
