simple way of removing gnome

I have gnome on simply because our school used to run arch on gnome. It was useful to play with it to figure out how to do things they liked. (I fluxuate between Fluxbox and Windowmaker.) But now that they prefer KDE I would like to remove all of gnome. When I do -R gnome I get these messages about such and such are necessary for such and such program. Is there a simple way of removing all of Gnome?

Re: simple way of removing gnome

the way i would do it:

do a pacman -R gnome in a xterm.

copy to an editor or somewhere else or write them down, what pkgs are still needed on your system

remove from the list of pkgs in gnome group the pkgs that are still needed

do pacman -R [post your list of pkgs to be removed here]

That's what I started to do but I wondered if there was anything faster. Anyhow, thanks for your reply.

Re: simple way of removing gnome

Go into the command line and do 'pacman -Rscn gnome'.

R = remove (duh)
s = remove all dependencies not required by other programs
c = remove all programs dependent on it
n = remove config files that aren't in home directories

The 'n' option isn't necessary, but you might want to use it.

(Don't worry, it won't remove anything in the /home/* or /root dirs.)
