rhino-pkg is our custom package management wrapper written in Bash. It was designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. It will allow for you to search, install, remove, and update packages from all of our supported package manager repositories (APT, Pacstall, Flatpak, and snap), all with easy-to-read terminal outputs to improve your experience whilst using the distribution.
• It is strongly recommended to utilise rhino-pkg, rather than each package manager individually.
rhino-pkg update -y
To get started with rhino-pkg, you will want to ensure that all of your packages are currently up to date. Here's how:
rhino-pkg update - This command will search through APT, Pacstall, Flatpak and snap, check for updates in all repositories, and install any updates found.
rhino-pkg install [input] - This command will search the repositories and display a list of packages matching your input. You can then select the corresponding package(s).
rhino-pkg remove [input] - This command will search the repositories and display a list of packages matching your input which are installed. You can then select the corresponding package(s) that you wish to remove.
rhino-pkg search [input] - This command will only search the repositories and display a list of packages matching your input.
rhino-pkg cleanup - This command will attempt to repair broken dependencies and remove unused packages for each of the repositories on your system.
--help/-h - Pass this flag to show the help page. This can also be done by calling the utility with no functions or inputs.
--description/-d - By default, rhino-pkg will only display packages that contain the provided input within their name. Use this flag to increase the search range and display packages with the provided input in their description.
-y - Pass this flag to skip through confirmation prompts. Only works with rhino-pkg update and cleanup.
• NOTE: You can also call rhino-pkg by using
rpk in place of
rhino-pkg in any of the above commands.
