• sudo apt-get command not found


    I can’t install things using Terminal, this comes up. I used ‘sudo apt-get install vlc’

    You certainly can`t. The correct command for Arch is
    sudo pacman -S vlc
    in your case:smile:

  • Not going to lie, I giggled. :smile:

    Arch linux uses Pacman as a package manager. Instead of doing sudo apt-get install vlc, you will do sudo pacman -S vlc. That -S command is for installation.

    I would look into the link anarch posted to see the differences. (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman_Rosetta)
    Another read would be the pacman wiki, as it explains everything in depth: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman
