How to fix lsb_release command not found on Arch Linux

August 2, 2017 | By | Reply More

I got a query from my reader asking how to run lsb_release command on Arch Linux. By default, you won’t be able to run lsb_release command on Arch Linux because its not installed by default. In order to run the lsb_release command on Arch based Linux, we need to install lsb-release package first.

Install lsb-release on Arch Linux

sudo pacman -S lsb-release

Output:

[root@archServer]: ~># pacman -S lsb-release
resolving dependencies…
looking for conflicting packages…

Packages (1) lsb-release-1.4-14

Total Download Size: 0.01 MiB
Total Installed Size: 0.04 MiB

:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n]

Once you install the package, now we can use lsb_release command such as :

[root@archServer]: ~># lsb_release -a
LSB Version: 1.4
Distributor ID: Arch
Description: Arch Linux
Release: rolling
Codename: n/a

Thank you.
