Unwanted Software/Games installed after updating

After updating my System via pacman -Syu, several Games and other Software were installed on my arch install. They are: Sudoku, Checkers, Fluid, Block Attack!. I never explicitly installed them and i also don't want them on my Pc. How do i get rid of them and prevent this from happening without my consent again? I tried to find the exact package names, so i could remove them with pacman -R, but i couldn't find them.

Re: Unwanted Software/Games installed after updating

Those games are part of the "fltk" package.
If you dont want the games and their related files, tell pacman to not extract them.

man pacman.conf wrote:

NoExtract = file ...
           All files listed with a NoExtract directive will never be
           extracted from a package into the filesystem. This can be useful
           when you don’t want part of a package to be installed. For
           example, if your httpd root uses an index.php, then you would not
           want the index.html file to be extracted from the apache package.
           These files refer to files in the package archive, so do not
           include the leading slash (the RootDir) when specifying them.
           Shell-style glob patterns are allowed. It is possible to invert
           matches by prepending a file with an exclamation mark. Inverted
           files will result in previously blacklisted files being
           whitelisted again. Subsequent matches will override previous ones.
           A leading literal exclamation mark or backslash needs to be
           escaped.

Shouldn't fltk-games just be deleted? Honestly, who is going to use that? There are enough examples for fltk on the ol internet.
