Arch moved QGIS out of their packages repository

Arch moved QGIS out of their package repository a few weeks ago.  Luckily, it has been picked up by AUR where it is still very simple to install.  You can either follow Arch’s amazingly awesome wiki on how to install packages from AUR, or you can install Yaourt and let it do the heavy lifting for you.

Once installed QGIS gives you almost everything ESRI’s ArcView gave you. If you’re not using the advanced editing features or ArcEditor or Info, or you’re not dealing with data in an ArcServer or SDE database QGIS should be able to do everything you need it to do. It will run on Windows, Linux, and OS X.
