Just want to know what directory endeavouros-skel-default 1.9-1 and endeavouros-skel-xfce4 3.7-1 is so I can remove them

Just can’t find these files but they keep showing up.

You could remove them as you would remove any other packages from your system using pacman.

You could leave them since they won’t do any harm.

Note that when removed, if you create a new user, it will not get EnOS’ theming and settings.

I’m the only person that will ever use this machine, I would just as soon get rid of them. I’ve tried to remove them with ‘pacman -Rs’, but it can’t seem to find them.
Just says ‘target not found’

I did see in another thread people were deleting them, they just didn’t specify how.

sudo pacman -R endeavouros-skel-default endeavouros-skel-xfce4 does not remove them?
Why do you think they are still there?

What says: pacman -Q | grep endeavouros-skel ?

When I do ‘pacman -Qm’ I get a list that includes these two files.

When I do pacman -Q | grep endeavouros-skel says file not found.

When I just do ‘paru’, I get this:
[mark@mark-optiplex9020 ~]$ paru

I just did your first command and it found and removed them. Thanks!

I’d recommend you to study the manual page of pacman:

man pacman

about what pacman -Qm and pacman -Q do.
Pacman is a versatile tool.

What threw me is I’ve never used the -R command by itself, which makes sense I guess if you’re getting rid of an isolated file. I kept using -Rns out of habit, which works for an installed program and it’s dependencies.

Perhaps you mistyped something there because

sudo pacman -Rs endeavouros-skel-default endeavouros-skel-xfce4

should have worked equally as well and would have removed any possible dependencies too.
