• \[SOLVED\] Using Common Linux Commands In Antergos


    I previously had Ubuntu and was able to use all Linux commands, however there are many I can’t seem to get to work in Antergos (specifically man, dpkg, and apt); what am I doing wrong?

    I get the message:

      
    bash: dpkg: command not found

  • dpkg and apt are debian/ubuntu specific, in Antergos/ArchLinux you can use the command ‘pacman’ to install software like this:

    sudo pacman -S gimp (Installs gimp)
    sudo pacman -Syu (Updates your system)
    sudo pacman -Rnsc gimp (Removes gimp and its dependencies)

    The man command should be available when antergos is installed in your system, but it is not included on the liveCD to make the image thiner.

  • Awesome! Thanks (:

    It is from the Sabayon WIKI, however has the related commands for: Gentoo/Sabayon, Debian, and Arch/Antergos

    Example:

    Updating package database on your system

    Gentoo:

    emerge --sync

    Debian:

    apt-get update
    aptitude update

    Note: The use of aptitude is recommended over apt-get due to more intelligent dependency handling

    Arch Linux:

    pacman -Sy

  • I also found this very useful page on Archwiki, for the ones who didn’t know about it yet, of course

  • This is also another excellent package management resource for users that are new to Antergos & Arch but are familiar with another linux distro.

    Hi. In what way does the use of aptitude become more intelligent on handling dependencies?
    I am really quite interested in knowing as when I use Ubuntu or Mint, normally ‘apt’ is what I use; however, if using ‘aptitude’ is best, I’d still like to know, please.

  • Ubuntu has chosen apt-get as it’s default and only supported option. Most of what previously made aptitude more attractive has now been implemented in apt-get. A quick google search for aptitude vs apt-get will provide more info although it is little dated. Personally if I were still using a debian based distro I would just stick with apt-get

    Best Regards,

    The are _many_ differences between *buntu/Debian and Arch.

    Please give a feedback after you get help so the thread can be set to solved.
