• [SOLVED] Uninstalling LXDE and LXQT


    I installed both LXQT and LXDE a while back just to see what they looked like, but I’d now like to uninstall them. Problem is, when I try, I keep getting unsolved dependency issues. Anyone any idea on how to proceed?

    >sudo pacman -R lxde
    checking dependencies...
    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
    :: lxqt-panel: requires lxmenu-data
    :: pcmanfm-qt: requires lxmenu-data
    
    >sudo pacman -R lxqt
    checking dependencies...
    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
    :: lxappearance-obconf: requires openbox
    :: lxappearance-obconf: requires libobrender.so=32-64

  • Hi,

    With just -R pacman won’t remove the dependencies. Try with -Rs

    Cheers!

  • Same result, sadly:

    >sudo pacman -Rs lxde
    checking dependencies...
    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
    :: lxqt-panel: requires lxmenu-data
    :: pcmanfm-qt: requires lxmenu-data
    
    >sudo pacman -Rs lxqt
    checking dependencies...
    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
    :: lxappearance-obconf: requires openbox
    :: lxappearance-obconf: requires libobrender.so=32-64

  • Well, let’s be more agressive:
    sudo pacman -Rnsc lxde lxqt

    But please, before just saying “Yes” check what it’s going to remove…

    Cheers!

  • @karasu That sorted it. The only flags I had were…

    pamac optionally requires lxsession: needed for authentification in Xfce, LXDE etc.
    xdg-utils optionally requires pcmanfm: for LXDE support in xdg-open
    xfce4-power-manager optionally requires lxpanel: for the LXDE panel plugin
    

    … so I kept lxsession and lxpanel (as I occasionally run XFCE) and removed xdg-utils.

    Thanks, karasu!
