Fuck, I need to install a package using the Arch package manager, FUCK

Manjaro notes apply, but first you also need to run the following:

# Make the root partition read-write
# This is basically just running `btrfs property set / ro true` but with extra checks and a fallback if the filesystem is ext4 instead, dunno how likely that is, maybe for SteamOS on other systems?
sudo steamos-readonly disable 

# Get Pacman the keys it needs to be able to trust packages
sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux

# Now you can install packages, like for example networkmanager-openvpn because for some reason the openvpn package is installed but networkmanager-openvpn isn't
sudo pacman -S networkmanager-openvpn
