I'm cleaning up a bit, and saw some gnome stuff I diden't want.. upon doing pacman -Rns gnome-disk-utility gvfs (gnome-disk-u depends on this) libgnome I get the following:
[michael@swamp ~]$ pacman -Rns gnome-disk-utility gvfs libgnome checking dependencies... Remove (17): libgnome-2.32.0-1 libcanberra-0.25-1 libbonobo-2.32.0-1 gnome-vfs-2.24.4-1 gnome-mime-data-2.18.0-4 gvfs-1.6.5-2 libsoup-gnome-2.32.0-1 libproxy-0.4.6-2 libcdio-0.82-1 libcddb-1.3.2-2 gnome-disk-utility-2.32.0-2 libgnome-keyring-2.32.0-1 udisks-1.0.1-5 sg3_utils-1.29-1 parted-2.3-1 libatasmart-0.17-1 libunique-1.1.6-3 Total Removed Size: 45.89 MB Do you want to remove these packages? [Y/n]
Stuff like udisks and libatasmart and parted sounds troublesom to me. Is it safe to hit Y?
I shouldn't have any gnome applications installed.

I'm no expert but i wouldn't uninstall libgnome...
What is the specific app you want to uninstall?
If you want to uninstall an application you just have to type:
pacman -Rcs package_name
And let pacman do the rest.
You can specify the dependencies in the command for more specific reasons...
You can also do this:
to see the packages that are installed, but they are no requiered by other installed packages.
That cleans the system a bit.

I don' t have any of those installed on my computer and everything works fine (not that that means too much). e.g. SATA drives, mounting, discs, etc. Those look like they were part of a file manager or media player or something? Not sure. I'd do as Hyugga suggested -- but ultimately if they're not required by any other program and you don't even use them or the programs they install $(pacman -Ql package) then it's probably a safe bet that you can remove them. I don't think any of those are in the base group.
Excellent suggestions, and command references - thanks everyone.
