Ifconfig problem

I just installed the new manjaro release on a computer I have been using Manjaro on for years. (Toshiba L465)

when typing ifconfig in the terminal instead of getting the information I have gotten for years I just get command not found.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what to do as a work around?

Thanks in Advance

Tips for posting

Use a "keyword search" to make sure your question has not already been asked. For example "failed to verify key" or "sound is muted".

Make sure you include enough detail so people know what you are running. A useful command is inxi -Fxz; copy and paste the text and format as "code" (e.g. use the </> button above).

If possible, paste text rather than upload a photo. Text is easier to read, searchable, and takes up less space on the server. Please don't upload high-resolution photos.

yaourt -S net-tools-debian-ifconfig

One of the packages which will be installed is ifconfig. It's no longer in the normal repo's but you can install it from the AUR using the command I gave you.

Except, dont. Learn ip
It has everything you used to use ifconfig, arp, and netstat for and more:


The net-tools package in the repos has ifconfig.


Thanks the help is sure appreciated!
