Since Antergos uses Arch repos and Arch package groups, you should be able to remove the “plasma” group and that should take everything else with it as according to the Arch wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/KDE#Installation that’s what KDE is made of.
Still, I would recommend reading up on this as KDE has tons of packages on its own and I have never tried removing it myself :)
The ‘r’ is different from English ‘r’, but who cares? xD
Michaell Tunnel pronounces it quite well (for not being a Spanish speaker, because he still gets the ‘r’ wrong).
Spanish (even south American) speakers get it right (0:16) :
I hope this helps you.
I was lucky enough to have been taught some elementary Spanish so I use the Spanish pronunciation of Antergos An-te(soft r)-go-s :)
If you’re up to it, you can switch to a window manager (you’ll still have access your desktop environment applications so don’t worry :) ) and just use some of your DE’s applications.
I have Antergos with GNOME3 installed but I had a hankering for a tiled window manager because of their low memory overhead so I simply installed i3-wm but I still use some GNOME applications (gedit and the like) but without GNOME’s memory hogging :)
Be warned that configuring window managers like i3 can be pretty intensive but at least i3 has the most human readable configuration files :)
BTW, I’d love to see an option to simply install a tiling window manager like i3 or awesome from the Antergos ISO :)
As Torg and megaman stated, look in the official Arch repos ( https://www.archlinux.org/ ) first to see if there is an equivalent package for Arch and if it’s not in the official repos, you can try AUR.
What package are you looking for, if you don’t mind my asking?
So I was looking through my pacman.log file to check if anything was broken and I found the following messages in the log:

Is this anything I need to be worried about? As of right now my system is running fine but I’d like to know if I need to fix anything. Please let me know if you need more info :)
@Judas didnt work for me but no biggie pcmanfm is also very good. thats a big bug for xfce im surprised they havent addressed it yet. its been around for a while now.
Ah too bad then. And here I thought I found a viable solution/workaround :)
@Judas Thanks! Am I right in thinking this can be done on a system other than the one you are planning to boot from? Only I can’t mount it on my laptop since I have no Arch install on it, only Ubuntu. However, my desktop has pure Arch. Can I safely mount and downgrade the kernel on the USB?
One way I can think of doing this would be to create a Live USB with persistence (about 2 GB for persistence mode should suffice), boot it into a virtual machine, downgrade the kernel on that USB with pacman as you would downgrade anything else, shutdown, and try booting with that USB on your laptop.
