I’m trying to follow some instructions to fix a bug in pamac-gtk which tell me to run appstreamcli however it’s not found. I was unable to find it with pacman or yay either. Are ya’ll using something different?
Do you mean
If yes, then just skip the last line. It works without.
I think you are asking about a fix for Pamac and not being able to browse the categories?
Here is a another way to fix it thanks to @manuel
A simple workaround is to edit the file /usr/share/app-info/xmls/community.xml.gz at line 51025.
The following commands should do it (but be extra careful not to change the quote characters!):
sed -i community.xml -e 's|[<]em>not[<]/em>|*not*|'
Hope this helps.
And if something goes south with the commands above, you can reinstall archlinux-appstream-data.
Thank you! That did the trick!
