NAME

yaourtrc − yaourt configuration file

SYNOPSIS

/etc/yaourtrc

$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/yaourt/yaourtrc

$HOME/.yaourtrc

DESCRIPTION

yaourt(8) obtains configuration data from the following sources in the following order:

This option requires root password or sudo configured to allow running /usr/bin/pacdiffviewer without password.
