After pacman update, pacsearch is no longer installed

I updated Arch Linux and now pacsearch is gone.

I know you can pacman -Ss, but I really liked how cool pacsearch was.

How can I get pacsearch back?

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

With the release of pacman 5.1.0, many of those supporting applications have been split out into pacman-contrib:

pacman -Fs pacsearch
community/pacman-contrib 1.0.0-2
    usr/bin/pacsearch


pacman -Ql pacman-contrib | awk -F/ '/bin/ {print $4}'

checkupdates
paccache
pacdiff
paclist
paclog-pkglist
pacscripts
pacsearch
pacsort
pactree
rankmirrors
updpkgsums

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
