pkgfile is a tool for searching files from packages in the official repositories.


Install pkgfile from the official repositories, or pkgfile-gitAUR from the AUR.

The pkgfile database can then be synced with:

# pkgfile -u


To search for a package that owns the file makepkg:

$ pkgfile makepkg

To list all files provided by archlinux-keyring:

$ pkgfile -l archlinux-keyring
core/archlinux-keyring usr/
core/archlinux-keyring usr/share/
core/archlinux-keyring usr/share/pacman/
core/archlinux-keyring usr/share/pacman/keyrings/
core/archlinux-keyring usr/share/pacman/keyrings/archlinux-revoked
core/archlinux-keyring usr/share/pacman/keyrings/archlinux-trusted
core/archlinux-keyring usr/share/pacman/keyrings/archlinux.gpg

"Command not found" hook

pkgfile includes a "command not found" hook that will automatically search the official repositories, when entering an unrecognized command:

$ abiword
abiword may be found in the following packages:
  extra/abiword 2.8.6-7	usr/bin/abiword

To enable it in all children shells, you need to source the hook from one of your shell initialization files.

source /usr/share/doc/pkgfile/command-not-found.bash
  • Example for Zsh:
source /usr/share/doc/pkgfile/command-not-found.zsh
