Need help on how to install the FISH SHELL in Void Linux.

Post by DoruVoid »

I love the FISH SHELL, and I use it in other distros.
Is there a way to install it in Void?
I already tried:

Code: Select all

sudo  xbps-install- S fish
Gives no result...
Error post:

Code: Select all

Package 'fish' not in repository pool.
Please help. Thanks.

Hi DoruVoid,

Yes, the fish shell is available in the Void XBPS repository.

Code: Select all

sudo xbps-install -S fish-shell
When you search the XBPS repository for available packages, remember to use the -R flag for remote. If you search without the -R flag, you will only be searching the packages you have installed.

Code: Select all

xbps-query -Rs pkgname
Linux/BSD since 2001. Void Linux+KDE/Plasma since 2015. Windows? Not even in a virtual machine :D
