Tuxi-git not working

I've tried installing it with pacman, and through the github. All my searches get "no results!"

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the Forums!

I do see it in the AUR repo AUR (en) - tuxi-git


Welcome to the forum!

Unrelated problem: this symbol means that the system has not been rebooted since the last update. In this case it is particularly important to do it, since the kernel will be now 5.18.3.


Thanks, I should have been more clear. I can successfully install the program. The problem is that it doesn't seem to work. Anything I search using tuxi just says "no results". I've tried to google the problem but I only get a few results of the program working fine for everyone else. I haven't seen any problems reported for it. Not sure if it's Garuda or tuxi.

If the program is not launching, or launches but crashes/freezes, as a quick start, if you run it from the Terminal window and post the output here, what does it say?

EDIT: The version on the AUR seems to be outdated, although no one flagged it as such. If it's true, this could cause program instability and issues.


It's a CLI program only. But when I type it says.

╰─λ tuxi
Hi, I'm Tuxi. Ask me anything!
Usage: tuxi [options] query

But then when I try to search something by throwing "tuxi what is linux" or "tuxi baseball" I get

No Result!

This script is kind of abandoned, but there are a possible work-around and a couple of forks.


Ha I see better what that program is.

man tuxi

Should tell you how to use the program, in case you are not using it properly.
If you are using it properly, then maybe post on the AUR URL from Post #2 asking why you get no result?

This project has been abandoned and for all intents and purposes the program is defunct.

I suggest that the solution to your problem is learning how to search issues for yourself. You know the old saying, "If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself".

See this post on the Garuda Wiki for many helpful tips on how to search effectively:

This is really not anything to do with Garuda and is something you need to learn to do for yourself. Garuda promotes the philosophy that our users should strive to be self sufficient and only rely on the forum for solving difficult issues. This topic couldn't possibly be any further from what Garuda attempts to instill in our users.

As such, I am closing this thread because the program you want assistance with is non-functional and this topic is a total waste of forum support resources.
