@IooNag I will update the package soon. I got a request to improve the package and I will add the zsh completion patch too.

Hi, the package installs the packer binary as packer-io but does not rename the zsh completion file before installing it. Could you please update the package to update the "#compdef" line and install the completion file into /usr/share/zsh/site-functions/_packer-io?
For example on my system I added sed 's/^#compdef packer/#compdef packer-io/' "${srcdir}/_packer" > "${srcdir}/_packer-io" to prepare() and replaced _packer to _packer-io in the install command and it worked fine. Thanks!

We've been having issues building some images with Packer when ifconfig is not present on a machine. I think net-tools needs to be added as a dependency to the package to ensure it's installed. At least until Packet moves to the iproute2 tools.

@alkersan here we go to /usr/share/zsh/site-functions now :)

I think there is a mistake in zsh completions setup path. It should be:
/usr/share/zsh/site-functions, but currently `zsh` segment is missing: /usr/share/site-functions, so they aren't working.

Please, add zsh completetions from packer contribs:
You can look at terraform-bin package for reference (
