[SOLVED] Why I should to install gtk3 in kde?

Hello,

Now I was updating my system with the classic pacman command. In the updates, there is this package: gtk3-3.6.4-1 . If I am not wrong, KDE uses Qt and not GTK+ like Gnome.
And so why I have to install them?
Or maybe there are some application that require them? I use Chromium...

Grant.

One of the updated packages now depends on gtk3. Chromium depends gtk2.

Re: [SOLVED] Why I should to install gtk3 in kde?

The simplest way would be to go ahead with the upgrade, then `pacman -Qi gtk3` to see the "Required By: " list, then you can decided if you want to replace/remove the package that requires it.

Or, if the list of packages being upgraded is small, you can run the following on each of those you explicitly installed "pacman -Si <package>" and look at the "Depends On: " list.

I believe gconf is useless in kde, right?

Can't you extrapolate from the above recommended commands to know which command to use to answer your own question?

if you try to remove it, you get the list of dependent packages.

Is weird that is required from gstreamer. I should to install gtk3 only for it, because I can't remove it.

gconf is not needed by gstreamer.

Sorry, gstreamer isn't included in gstreamer0.10-good-plugins?

You can run "pactree -r gtk3" to see exactly what package(s) want/need gtk3.

Re: [SOLVED] Why I should to install gtk3 in kde?

the answer to your problem https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gstr … gins-slim/
or just rebuild it yourself i do it that way since i don't need jack and gtk...

gstreamer-good-plugins depends on gconf which pulls gtk3...

Re: [SOLVED] Why I should to install gtk3 in kde?

...or simply rebuild the official gstreamer0.10-good package available via ABS with the following lines added in the build() section:

--disable-gconftool \
--disable-gconf \
--disable-soup \

I suspect gstreamer is required by gstreamer0.10-good-plugins, but the latter is certainly not required by the former - hence the confusion.  One can very easily install gstreamer without installing the plugins, and in such a case it would not require gconf or gtk3.

Do you need the -good-plugins pacakge?

Re: [SOLVED] Why I should to install gtk3 in kde?

I removed the good-plugins package, with gtk3 and gconf with success.
Thanks!
