make pacman case-insensitive.
 
Hello, all:

When we run "pacman -S Firefox", we will get "error: target not found:
Firefox" because there is only firefox, not Firefox, in repo. IMHO it
could be better if pacman is case insensitive.

Mizuchi

Wrong list, it has nothing to do with AUR. Try posting to pacman-dev.

Are you sure?

$ sudo pacman -S Firefox
error: target not found: Firefox
$ type -a pacman
pacman is /usr/bin/pacman

pacman -Ss seems to be case insensitive, however -S, -Q aren't

make pacman case-insensitive.
 
Hello,

Try
pacman -R FIREFOX
and
pacman -R firefox

In this case, it is case sensitive.

But:
pacman -Ss FIREFOX
This is case-insensitive.

Please do not make pacman -S(R) case-insensitive. I don't like the idea,
because the next "feature" would be case-insensitive paths.
