Re: Removing window manager

Try removing a package from the xfce4 ones with a high level of dependencies, like libxfce4util:

pacman -Rc libxfce4util

If i'm right, the only thing to remove then should be gtk-xfce-engine.

First of all, I think orelien's solution is the easiest.
Just an addition; in case you wanna remove such more complex things like
xfce4, gnome or kde it can be kind of tricky. If you know the package with
the highest dependency than pacman -Rc does a pretty good job. Another
way might be to test a pacman -Rc | grep xfce. This works a bit for xfce but
also can be kind of risky because it might take some more packages than
you want. It's probably best to download the abs-tree cd /usr/abs... and
then kde or gnome or unstable/xfce4 and try a pacman -R `/bin/ls`.
To sum it up, there is no perfect easy way to remove them. Some packages
probably always need to be removed manually.
