LAN hostnames wont resolve

This was 100% working a few months ago, but I discovered I can no longer ping or ssh a local hostname.
The hostnames are working because I can boot into another live distro (also gnome) & it works. I can also see the hostnames listed on the router config page.
So what could be the reason that Manjaro wont resolve them?

ping raspberrypi 
    ping: raspberrypi: Name or service not known
ping raspberrypi.local 
    ping: raspberrypi.local: Name or service not known

Iā€™m thinking some kind of DNS issue. Probably changes to a different DNS server.

Check the avahi services - enable if necessary - it is not enabled on Manjaro

systemctl list-unit-files | grep avahi

The avahi package is installed but you may need to install the package nss-mdns as well

Thanks! That worked & raspberrypi.local can now be resolved.
