Fresh install no lsusb after meta-package base change

Hey I just want to both check and let people know that post-base-group replacement on fresh installs like mine today there is no lsusb which I believe was previously provided by the base package.
It does say in the post on the archlinux homepage that packages will have to be explicitly installed so this was not a surprise however:

Checking im up to date

sudo pikaur -Syyuu
[...]
:: Starting full system upgrade...
 there is nothing to do

Checking if an lsusb package exists

$ sudo pacman -Ss lsusb
$ 

Checking if a package owns lsusb

$ sudo pacman -Qo lsusb
error: No package owns lsusb

Searching the AUR for lsusb

$ sudo pikaur -Ss lsusb
Searching... [###]
$ 

Nothing.

I googled (duck duck) and searched the forum to no avail, I cant seem to find any information so recently on what happened to lsusb which is necessary for SteamVR on linux (why i noticed its absence).
Short of pulling another fresh mirrorlist from the pacman mirrorlist generator, i'm not sure it exists anywhere.

Re: Fresh install no lsusb after meta-package base change

The second I post this, I give in and read one of my top search results for the dutch arch wiki (for some reason, thanks duck duck go), and I see usbutils, I'm an idiot apologies guys.
Of course it was in usbutils ...

Re: Fresh install no lsusb after meta-package base change

If you used pacman instead of an aur helper as your package manager, you would not find yourself in this situation:

pacman -Fs lsusb
core/usbutils 009-1
    usr/bin/lsusb

Arch + dwm   •   Mercurial repos  •   Surfraw
