Re: How to remove gnome

pacman -Rscn gnome

Make sure to take a closer look at what packages are removed. It's possible that you have to reinstall some important ones.

You will probably have to uninstall eel and gnome-vfs as well since they depend on the gnome group. You can use the command that Barghest provided, if you are sure you want all the gnome dependencies to be removed. But please take a close look at what packages it is removing, since the -c option in pacman -R, can also remove packages  that you might need.

Re: How to remove gnome

i always do "pacman -R gnome" and when it asks if i want to remove all of it i say no.

Then i remve all but gnome-mime-data, gnome-desktop, gnome-icon-theme and probably 1 more, cant remember right now. The errors will guide you smile

Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

Re: How to remove gnome

I found that

pacman -Runs gnome

works best and is preferable to "pacman -Rcns gnome":

-u, --unneeded
           Removes the targets that are not required by any other packages.
           This is mostly useful when removing a group without using the -c
           option, to avoid breaking any dependencies.
-c, --cascade
           Remove all target packages, as well as all packages that depend on
           one or more target packages. This operation is recursive, and must
           be used with care since it can remove many potentially needed
           packages.

Nice, that one worked perfectly for me. Thanks

Re: How to remove gnome

@Kasumi_Ninja - Thanks for that information and for helping out the OP. I believe you missed the fact that this thread is more than a year old and therefore the OP either solved the problem or isn't interested in it anymore. Your desire to help and actual help is commendable though.

I'm closing the thread for necro-bump.
