• Cant remove KDE


    I replaced Cinnamon with KDE by running this

    sudo pacman -S kde-meta-kdebase kde-meta-kdeutils kde-meta-kdemultimedia kde-meta-kdegraphics kde-meta-kdeplasma-addons kde-meta-kdeadmin

    I later installed xfce and removed kde.

    sudo pacman -S xfce4 xfce4-goodies

    sudo pacman -R kde-meta-kdebase kde-meta-kdeutils kde-meta-kdemultimedia kde-meta-kdegraphics kde-meta-kdeplasma-addons kde-meta-kdeadmin

    I am using mdm display manager. However after i restarted my laptop, i can still see and login into the KDE plasma session. How is this possible? How can I remove kde completely? If I try to repeat the earlier command i get this

    error: target not found: kde-meta-kdebase
    error: target not found: kde-meta-kdeutils
    error: target not found: kde-meta-kdemultimedia
    error: target not found: kde-meta-kdegraphics
    error: target not found: kde-meta-kdeplasma-addons
    error: target not found: kde-meta-kdeadmin

  • Try:

    sudo pacman -Rcc kde
    

    Cheers!

  • Thanks that worked! However whats the difference between pacman -R and pacman -Rcc or even pacman -Rs

  • Pacman commands seem pretty complicated at first but once you understand how it handles packages and upgrades you will wonder how you ever did without it! The -Rcc tells pacman to remove the specified packages and also remove any packages that depend on those packages. Add this link to your bookmarks, it was very useful to me when I first started with pacman: [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman_Rosetta][0]">[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman_Rosetta][1]
