For me, it’s about not wanting things installed that I don’t need. I don’t have a printer, so I don’t have
cups installed. My question: with the online installation (KDE Plasma), can I also deselect the
print-manager or do I need it to be able to print documents as .pdf (in Libreoffice this is done via the export function anyway)?
Or, on an existing installation, remove it with
sudo pacman -Rns print-manager ?
Does the absence of
print-manager affect anything else in the system (conversion of documents to .pdf outside the PDF export function in LibreOffice is not provided).
Edit: Just found out that
print-manager cannot be uninstalled afterwards because that would violate
kde-meta-package dependencies. OK, then just leave it out when reinstalling.
You can remove the meta package and convert whatever else was in it to explicitly installed
There is a never a need to reinstall to remove packages.

I would have to disassemble the
OK, so remove
kde-utilities-meta. It is just a meta package.
Then you convert it’s components to explicitly installed.
If you don’t know how to do that, I can give you the commands.
Thanks, I know the commands, I just need to figure out which components this will affect.
sudo pacman -D --asexplicit ark filelight kate kbackup kcalc kcharselect kdebugsettings kdf kdialog keditbookmarks kfind kfloppy kgpg konsole kteatime ktimer kwalletmanager kwrite markdownpart sweeper yakuake
It is a meta package, so whatever it on the dependencies list is what it impacts. If it helps, I pasted the command above.
Thank you very much, I have just worked it out. This is also a good opportunity to clean up with other useless stuff
