[SOLVED]pacman -R kde leaves packages uninstalled

I installed KDE with "pacman -S kde" it installed all sorts of stuff and i didn't like it. 
The only things i needed were kde-base plasma and dolphin. Now i've disintalled kde ( with "pacman -R kde ) and kept it minimal with the few things i need.
Seems perfect but when i open a terminal and digit "k" and press tab, i can still see all kapplications that came with the whole kde package. Why? Shouldn't they be deleted? How can i remove them completley?

Re: [SOLVED]pacman -R kde leaves packages uninstalled

Those are just base kde executables.

-edit-

Your posts aren't very clear. You want to get rid of everything kde-related or just keep plasma/dolphin?

Run "pacman -Q | grep kde" to see what kde packages are installed. Run "pacman -Qo `which ksomething`" to see what package the executable belongs to.

Re: [SOLVED]pacman -R kde leaves packages uninstalled

i managed to eliminate the kde packages and i had a few left. Seeing the "K" in front ( i'm completley new to kde so i don't know how it's organized )

kadmin        kdigest       kill          kpasswd       kswitch
kadmind       kEsetroot     killall       kpasswdd      ktelnet
kauth         keytool       killall5      krb5-config   ktelnetd
kbd_mode      kf            kimpersonate  krcp          ktutil
kbdrate       kfd           kinit         krsh          
kcm           kftp          klist         krshd         
kdc           kftpd         klogin        kstash        
kdestroy      kgetcred      koi8rxterm    ksu

i thought that the remaining packages were left over from the previous installation ok KDE.
I'm wrong aren't I?

EDIT: apart from "kill" obviously

Re: [SOLVED]pacman -R kde leaves packages uninstalled

yes @z3r0. you are wrong.

pacman -Qo `which ksu` for example.

Re: [SOLVED]pacman -R kde leaves packages uninstalled

As I understand, you removed kde with "pacman -R kde" and then used "pacman -Rns kde".

Have any packages been removed with the "pacman -R kde" ??


I would install again kde
pacman -S kde

and then
pacman -Rnsc kde kdebase
suposely this last command will remove every package which depends on kde/kdebase

you should check it. it could work.
