Re: remove gimp and open office

pacman -R gimp

I am not sure what's the package name of openoffice.
List installed packages:
pacman -Q

You might be able to clear a lot of space if you remove all packages from pacman cache..

pacman -Sc
pacman -Scc

I just reclaimed 220MB:

[/home/jeroen] df /
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1              5534416   3884100   1369184  74% /
[/home/jeroen] pacman -Sc
removing old packages from cache... done.

Re: remove gimp and open office

for the record,

pacman -Rs gimp openoffice-base openoffice-en openoffice-spell-en

would have removed those packages and any dependencies that are needed by those packages and no other programs, provided they were not explicitly install. This will free up a little space.

Re: remove gimp and open office

Indeed, but would that really result in a drastic increase in free disk space?
