    Complaint about antergos-kde-setup

    Hey yall,Ive been using antergos for some days now,and i have an issue with this 1 particular package…So,I did talk to people abt the issue,and they send to post it here…

    So,the thing is whenever someone chooses to install KDE from cnchi,it automatically includes the package “antergos-kde-setup”…and that installs some softwares…hmmmm…bloatware…if u will…which some might not use…(eg:vlc,clementine).

    And whenever,I wanna uninstall said bloatware…the package prevents me to do so…

    I know…some of yall would say just remove the package yourself,but it would be convenient if the cnchi devs could remove it altogether…

    thats all…

    The purpose of that package is to apply the default Antergos setup for KDE. It can be removed after install if so desired. In the same vein, it can be reinstalled at a later date to re-apply the default setup to your system. If you feel the default setup is “bloatware” then I recommend choosing the base install and doing the rest manually. Cheers!

    @lots.0.logs Although I am perfectly fine with the basic choice of packages, I tried to uninstall Clementine before, because I do not use it. But doing so will give a dependency error, and prompt to uninstall the whole Plasma DE.

    @srir4m You could install the plasma-meta package, which will solve the dependency issues, and remove unneeded “bloatware” manually.
    Although I am still wondering why you would call two apps bloatware because you have no need forthem. I think that the Antergos team did a perfect job balancing a minimal number of apps appreciated by most users, without overdoing it. :v:

    Never to old to learn.

    I think you misunderstood the error. All that would be needed is to uninstall the antergos-kde-setup package. Uninstalling that one package does not remove any other packages. It is certainly not required to remove all of Plasma just to remove Clementine.

    @lots.0.logs What happened is that when trying to remove the antergos-kde-setup package or Clementine using Pamac it resulted in a prompt to remove all plasma related packages. When trying to remove Clementine in Konsole, without first removing the setup package, will result in a dependency error. That is why I thought it would not work.

    Following your suggestion I first removed the setup package in Konsole and then Clementine. This worked perfect.

    Sounds strange. I have removed antergos-kde-setuptwice so far. On a clean KDE install and on a GNOME install where I got KDE installing antergos-kde-setup package. I have removed it in both cases in order to uninstall apps I don t use, such as Clementine & VLC, both using pamac…

    I’ll put my vote in to maybe look at how the devs (who do a great job) put together the setup packages. for me as I am new to Arch and antergos it is a pain to basically go through an install then have to reinstall half the packages all because I have no need or want for some apps. ie… Clementine, kopete (whatever that does?), Sweeper, hp device manager, V4L2 Test Utility (again why do I need it / what do I use it for?), Knetattach.

    and I would like to know why I need all the qt4 development apps like designer etc? what are they for? why are they there?

    may I please ask if maybe antergos-kde-setup doesn’t uninstall half the kde desktop for trivial apps like Clementine etc. ones in which a persons own taste dictate what they want to use.
