Can someone help me?

Hi there, welcome!
It seems there's something missing, like here...

I already tried it, but say "conky-lua-nv" cannot be found

i mean the package

The specified error is "Target not found"

Is your system fully updated?
Try with update from terminal before.

Yes fully updated

Do you have the chaotic-aur repository configured in your pacman.conf?

As i said im new in linux, so idk xD, should i do sudo pacman Qi chaotic-aur?

It says "package not found

sudo micro /etc/pacman.conf
Then make sure you have at the end

#SigLevel = Never
Include = /etc/pacman.d/chaotic-mirrorlist

Then update again and then try reinstalling the package


It says ":sudo : micro " command not found

Do you have Garuda xfce installed, right? Not Arch, as I see in your profile?


I have arch, didnt i write it? in profile

Ask in Arch forum, please.

Isnt it Arch forum? ■■■■■ my bad, sry

Then this issue is misplaced here, as basic assumptions we usually have don't apply for Arch (eg. having Chaotic-AUR installed)
