How to uninstall completely XFCE


I’m a old Antergos user, and on my first try to install Endeavouros it was impossible, I suppose for the Nvidia graphics card. Now I tried again and IT WORKED!! GREAT!!

I was delighted with Antergos, and I was very sad for his end.

At first impression, I feel a great sensation with Endeavouros, seems very stable like Antergos, and after a lot of tries with other distros I’m very happy to come here, I can’t found a good distro for me. I hope my search has come to an end.

I installed LXDE. All is working great, as usual, only takes 170Mb of RAM, is impressive for my limited AMD A6 computer, is very fast, and I have more fps on games than other DE, I love LXDE.
Here the question: now I would like to uninstall completely XFCE, but if I try to uninstall the packages that Archwiki says to install it, I have some dependence errors. What is the way to have LXDE-only system?

Thanks in advance!

there it is command line versions, otherwise you have pamac-aur

Yes, I made exactly the step that the link says, but:

jordi@amd ~]$ sudo pacman -Rs xfce4 xfce4-goodies
comprobando dependencias...
error: no se pudo preparar la operación (no se pudieron satisfacer las dependencias)
:: kalu: quitando «xfce4-notifyd» se rompe la dependencia con «notification-daemon»

What is notification-daemon?

you have pamac-aur or not

Jseg, here was my workaround for the error you got:

Step 1: Remove kalu with xfce

sudo pacman -Rs xfce4 xfce4-goodies kalu

Step 2: Reinstall kalu

sudo pacman -S  kalu

When you reinstall kalu it will pull in the dependency it requires without the rest of xfce.
