[SOLVED] Removing feh and dependencies?

Post by al3xis »

I just marked to remove feh and it told me it would remove a lot of arcolinux packages...
Is this correct?

yes - do not remove it or I believe you can do

sudo pacman -Rdd or something - look that up.

To remove a package, which is required by another package, without removing the dependent package:
Warning: The following operation can break a system and should be avoided. See System maintenance#Avoid certain pacman commands.

# pacman -Rdd package_name

Ah thanks for the information! I didn't realise that feh was so important. I was in plasma when I saw it and thought I didn't need it... ;)

In Plasma not really - but variety uses it as a failsafe.
