It happened to me multiple times, that I installed a package, but did not now the exact command how to run it, if it was not the same as the package name.

Lately I installed gnome-bluetooth, a bluetooth manager with the gnome GUI. But the command gnome-bluetooth won't run it. How can I look up the command to execute the installed program?

    pacman -Ql gnome-bluetooth will list the files installed by that package. – don_crissti Jul 23 '18 at 10:59

A Quick lookup through documentation gives this: https://help.gnome.org/users/gnome-bluetooth/stable/gnome-bluetooth-applet.html.en

If not mentioned here , file a bug report/IRC channels will help you if this is not in documentation and resolve with link.

  • Thank you. I was thinking there is a hint or short description somewhere in the pacman package. – Natjo Jul 23 '18 at 12:18
