I am trying to remember an amazing command that searched the name of packages / if they are available in the repos.
I just cannot find it!
It was something like buildpkg “packagename” or [something]pkg “packagename”.
I don’t think that it was yay. I didn’t write it down and now I cannot find it anywhere.
For example, last week I used it to search for xmrig it gave me a numbered list of all of the different packages available.
Any ideas folk?
I think you’re talking about
pamac search <packageName>
- To install a package from the repositories:
pamaac install <packageName>
- To build/install a package from the AUR:
pamac build <packageName>
To remove a package:
pamac remove <packageName>
<packageName> is the name of the package in question.
This could probably be answered a hundred ways … but …
find /bin/ -name *pkg
(of course that is just based upon your post)
Pamac actually does it better - whilst the outputted list is not numbered it is certainly more readable.
Cheers, that it actually really useful.
