• Pamac & KDE


    Hey,

    Why is Pamac not written in QT when using the KDE environment?

    I get that it’s a tool for Arch/Antergos and not related to KDE but it seems logical that the update and app store of sorts should use the desktop environments standards (QT).

    Is there an alternative to pamac that I can use that is built using QT and allows me to search for and install/remove apps as well as run updates.

    Yes I can do stuff from the terminal but sometimes I like checking the GUI.

  • Oh nice!

    Thanks for that.

    I went to remove Pamac since I will use that instead and it says it will also remove:

    antergos-welcome
    python-simplejson
    notification-daemon

    That concerns me. At least the notification daemon concerns me. Is that only for the Pamac notifications (about updates) or is it my system notifications for everything?

    Can I remove all this without causing me issues?

    use:
    pacman -Rdd

    Antergos (default OS) - WIN10 (abandoned)
    I3wm - Mate desktop
    AMD - A4 7300 Radeon graphics
    16 GB ram

  • What does that do exactly?

    Remove only pamac leaving the others?

    and you mean

    pamac -Rdd correct?

  • @noobertroon yes, unistall without removing it’s dependencies

    No, pacman -Rdd. I doubt you use antergos-welcome so it should be fine using this.

  • I tried using that command and got:

    “error: no targets specified (use -h for help)”

    It also required sudo before doing that.

    You need to tell which package to remove. pacman -Rdd pamac

    It also required sudo before doing that.

    You need sudo of course :slight_smile:

  • Thanks guys.

    All set with that.

  • pamac-tray-appindicator from aur works for me with kde.
