Installing Mapnik on Arch Linux

Mapnik is available as a community package. To install it, just run:

# pacman -Sy mapnik

Mapnik 2 from Git

If for any reason you want to build Mapnik from source, a package description is available in the Arch User Repository for easy building with ABS: mapnik-git (this will compile the latest development version from the Git master branch).

If you use Yaourt or a similar AUR helper, just install the 'mapnik-git' package:

$ yaourt -S mapnik-git

This will handle downloading, building and installing Mapnik with dependencies from the 'extra' and 'community' repositories.
