    This is the first time I have used ArchLinux and I am using ArchBang, which is just Arch Linux with Openbox pre-installed on it.
    When trying to install anything, I just get an error. I tried googling it and not much help there, so I am bring this here to the Temp since I know there are good number of ArchLinux users on the Temp.
    This is what I get, an example of a program I tried

    Code:
    pacman -S avant-window-navigator
    Code:
    error: 'avant-window-navigator': could not find or read package
    Anyone know what to do?

    pacman -Syu avant-window-navigator

    This syncs pacman and updates your packages, afterwards use pacman -S .
