There should only be links to files in
rmwill only remove the link but keeps the original file as it is.
For example on my system
$ ls -l /etc/fonts/conf.d total 4 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 44 Oct 5 05:06 10-hinting-slight.conf -> /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-hinting-slight.conf lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 48 Oct 5 05:06 10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf -> /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 Feb 16 2018 20-unhint-small-dejavu-sans.conf -> ../conf.avail/20-unhint-small-dejavu-sans.conf lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 51 Feb 16 2018 20-unhint-small-dejavu-sans-mono.conf -> ../conf.avail/20-unhint-small-dejavu-sans-mono.conf .... .... ....
You can see the -> pointing to the original file in …/conf.avail
sudo ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/70-no-bitmaps.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d
sudo ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d
sudo ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/11-lcdfilter-default.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d
sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.confand so on would remove the links.
I often use Filelight https://www.kde.org/applications/utilities/filelight/ or k4dirstat or qdirstat to figure out where the space is.
filelight and k4dirstat are kde apps so installing will pull in more stuff than you want.
qdirstat should “only” pull in qt.
All are available on antergos.
As @manuel said it does depend on what you want to do.
I checked my setup, I have installations of Antergos, Ubuntu and OpenSuse Leap, all on a single hard disk.
When possible I opted to make the root partitions 50Gb, but most are 35Gb.
The /home partition is a separate btrfs partition.
One possible set of steps is
- boot a live usb linux distro, maybe Antergos, it would depend if gparted or qtparted were available
- backup the /home partition on to some location on sdb1
- resize the /home partition (/sda3) using gparted or qtparted (down by however much you want to expand the root partition (/sda2) by/
- then move the /home partition (/sda3) down, again using gparted or qtparted ( would take a long time I think)
- then resize the root partition (/sda2) to fill the empty space following it.
Did a bit of googling and found https://www.howtoforge.com/partitioning_with_gparted which describes how to shrink a partition
He used gparted-live see https://gparted.org/livecd.php
Finally I would suggest that you attempt this only if you feel comfortable and confident doing this correctly.
Backing up the home directory and moving the partition will both take some time.
EDIT: For backup rsync should work, I would probably use
sudo rsync blah blah
I hope I’ve got this right, but AFAICT systemd-networkd does not need to be running for Network Time Synchronisation, see below…
