Is it okay to delete xfce from my system?

Hello I am recent beginner for endeavor os, and I had a question about whether would it be fine for me to delete xfce from my system. I currently run the i3 de. I didn’t got it using the online installer and separately downloaded i3 with pacman and got the endeavor os i3 from github.

I fear that maybe my system has some dependencies with the xfce de and possible crash my system if I did deleted it. For example, when I turn on my laptop and the login comes up, it looks like it is for xfce.

Thanks everyone. Endeavor OS is awesome!

you can remove xfce4 first, and reinstall packages needed for i3 to make sure to not delete any needed packages:

sudo pacman -Rs xfce4 orage parole ristretto xfce4-battery-plugin xfce4-datetime-plugin xfce4-mount-plugin xfce4-netload-plugin xfce4-notifyd xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin xfce4-screensaver xfce4-screenshooter xfce4-taskmanager xfce4-wavelan-plugin xfce4-weather-plugin xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin xfce4-xkb-plugin gnome-packagekit

git clone https://github.com/endeavouros-team/i3-EndeavourOS.git
cd i3-EndeavourOS
sudo pacman -S --needed - < packages-repository.txt
