• KDE not letting me remove the bluez and clementine package


    Hi,

    Since the past few days I’ve been trying to remove the bluez package, but is this a new feature in kde 5.7 or something like that, because it wont let me remove the bluez package.

    I don’t have bluetooth, and while installing antergos KDE I un-checked bluetooth support, yet this bluez package is installed on my system. I want to remove bluez because it delayes plasmashell on boot by at least 30 seconds.

    I faced this same delay problem when I was on manjaro, plasmashell would take a very long time to load at every boot, and removing the bluez package fixed it.

    So this is what I get when try to remove bluez —

    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -Rs bluez
    [sudo] password for kabir:

    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)

    I face the exact same issue when I try removing clementine, because I prefer to use Amarok,

    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -Rs clementine
    [sudo] password for kabir:

    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)                 
    :: antergos-kde-setup: removing clementine breaks dependency 'clementine'             
    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -R clementine                                             
    checking dependencies...
    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
    :: antergos-kde-setup: removing clementine breaks dependency 'clementine'
    [[email protected] ~]$ 
    
    

    Is KDE not going to let me remove any packages??? Why can’t I remove these packages, even pacman -R is not letting me remove them, and pacman -R does not break any dependencies according to the arch wiki, so is another kde bug?

    Any help regarding this issue would really help.
    Thanks!

  • Can t see a KDE bug. According to the warnings,bluez is required by bluez-qt, which in turn is required by powerdevil (manages power consumption settings for plasma), which leads to requirement by antergos-kde-setup
    As for clementine, it s required (again, as previously) by antegos-kde-setup . Sorry, I know no more on this.

  • @anarch Oh ok, well thanks for responding. I will see what I can find on google, And in the future plasma 5.7 updates, I really hope they fix the plasmashell delay on every boot, 5.6 was very slick and quick… also, sometimes when I boot up the plasmashell transparency is gone, so I have to kill the shell and restart it… well, not sometimes, almost at every boot. Anyway, I guess that I’ll address it in another thread.
    Thanks!
