Serching for a package in Repositories

Ok don't beat me, I've read the man page but I can't manage how to search for a package giving a string to pacman. For example, if I want to search all packages in db that contains *xfce*, what should I do?

pacman -Ss <package>

pacman -Qi | grep <package>

For local repositories you can use:

pacman -Qs <pkgname>
