"dnf search" in dom0 - no results

I can’t find Conky when I do dnf search on dom0 , but on my main Fedora PC I can ??
did I need to add a repository ??

Installing additional software in dom0 greatly decreases the security of your system. This is highly discouraged and before proceeding you need to understand an accept the risks of said action.

The documentation has your answer (more often than not it’s written there already):

To search, use the --action flag:

sudo qubes-dom0-update --action=search conky

No, use `sudo qubes-dom0-update --action=search conky"
In dom0 you will almost always use qubes-dom0-update.

Whether conky by itself will provide you with useful information is a
moot point.

Sorry - for some reason this appeared as a separate thread with a new
title, although obviously the same topic as that I replied to above.

Thanks @unman

Yes, the post was a bit off topic on the other thread so I moved it into a new thread. Both of your replies landed on the new thread :slight_smile:
