Adwaita Icons in Plasma settings

When I just looked into my Settings > Appearance > Icons, I noticed that besides Breeze and Breeze Dark, the Adwaita Icon Theme is also installed there. For sure I did NOT install this myself! I also have no GNOME programs installed other than Firefox and GIMP that it could be a dependency of. How did this get there? The Ghost in the Shell?

And can I delete it without damaging anything?

You can find out for sure with

pactree -r adwaita-icon-theme

However, I think it is a dependency of gtk3.

So you would probably have to remove all your gtk applications to get rid of it.

That’s a lot of dependencies, isn’t it?

Yep. You should probably just hang onto those icons. :sweat_smile:
