Powerblock working with Manjaro

Hello, just wondering if the driver for the powerblock accessory for the raspberry pi works with manajro which I know is arch Linux and not debian so I wasn't sure about compatibility. Above is a link to the old thread

Here is the terminal output when using the command
"wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/petrockblog/PowerBlock/master/install.sh | sudo bash"
It would appear that it was installed but the service is not running. How would I go about starting the service?
Error during installation of APT packages Cloning into 'PowerBlock'... remote: Enumerating objects: 16, done. remote: Counting objects: 100% (16/16), done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (14/14), done. remote: Total 16 (delta 1), reused 9 (delta 0), pack-reused 0 Receiving objects: 100% (16/16), 8.51 KiB | 726.00 KiB/s, done.

@tacticaltoast I need to take a look into Manjaro - I have not tested the driver with it before. I am sure that the PowerBlock will also work with it. Probably switching the driver to systemd will solve it (comparable to how the ControlBlock driver is installed, https://github.com/petrockblog/ControlBlockService2/blob/master/scripts/insertLine.sh#L15).
I will come back here soon!
