Default gnome only install - installing compiz pulls in kde4-runtime?? Why?

On 19/06/10 14:51, David C. Rankin wrote:

Guys,

First install with the 2010-5 dual net install on an i686 box. Kudos, install
was painless. Only issue was I had my pkg/ dir on a usb stick and I couldn't get
the installer to use it for install. I mounted it where it was supposed to be
mounted according to the installer (don't remember exactly /src/core/pkg or the
like). It couldn't find the core.blah package...

This is the first install where I haven't install kde/kdm. For this install, I
only installed gnome/gdm. I don't want kde4 within 10 feet of this box. I do
want compiz installed. When I installed compiz, it pulled in kde4 runtime, the
compiz-decorator-kde, kdelibs, etc..

Why? Can't I just have a gnome box with compiz? Can I uninstall the kde4 mess?



You obviously do not want the whole compiz group which includes
compiz-decorator-kde.


To install just the gtk stuff:
pacman -S compiz-core compiz-decorator-gtk

or if you have already done the install:
pacman -Rs compiz-decorator-kde

That was what I missed. Thanks Evangelos!

That was the other piece I needed! Thank you Allan

Wow over 1/2G saved on my / partition. That's what I wanted.

Allan, never stop giving users that extra bit of help with the command line,
like 'pacman -Rs compiz-decorator-kde'. That saved me at least an hour of
searching, frustration and trial and error. For users moving to Arch from other
distros with different package managers, that extra effort and little extra bit
of help is worth its weight in gold!
