Embarassing, but here is my problem. I had some fun installing some random terminal applications. I sudo pacman -S’ed xorg-xeyes, lolled, and then went pacman -R xorg-xeyes… however, pacman complains it can’t find target.
If I do grep -i installed /var/log/pacman.log it’s definitely there. Is xorg-xeyes now permanently a feature of my install?
That is pretty odd. Have you tried installing it again and then removing it?
hmm that seemed to do it. Weird, but thanks a lot! One less package to worry about I suppose
By any chance did you mistype the package name when running
pacman -R ?
pacman -Qs eyes
Does it list
xorg-xeyes as installed?
Also, why would you want to remove xeyes? It’s a very useful application when you lose your mouse pointer.
I even have an alias set for it:
alias xeyes='setsid xeyes -fg black >/dev/null 2>&1' # needs xorg-xeyes
I definately tried a few times - the whole thing was super odd
It’s definately uninstalled now! Trying to keep my packages relatively low… atleast as low as KDE plasma allows :d
My openbox laptop only has 450 packages, my big box has atleast 4 times that
