Neofetch not showing Endeavour OS icon anymore

Hi there,

I did not run neofetch for some time, but today I got a weird output.

What might have gone wrong here? That penguin is scary…

What are the content of /etc/os-release? Do you still have the package eos-hooks installed?

What does lsb_release -a return?


lsb-release was missing on my install. For some reasons it was removed

cat /var/log/pacman.log | grep lsb-release
[2020-10-18T20:43:09+0200] [ALPM] installed lsb-release (1.4-18)

[2022-12-22T06:56:43+0100] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET]  create mode 100644 lsb-release

After reinstalling lsb_release -a outputs

LSB Version:    n/a
Distributor ID: EndeavourOS
Description:    EndeavourOS Linux
Release:        rolling
Codename:       rolling

and neofetch is back to normal.

What might have removed lsb-release ?

You could look at the logs at the point in time when it was removed and see the whole transaction to get a better idea of what could have happened.

A dependency to grub-tools?

Looks like it. You have to be quite careful when using pacman -Rs. It will often remove more than it should.


Thanks for pointing this out. It was not dangerous this time but I will be careful in the future.
