Re: What's the best way to safely remove kde apps?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
The difficulty is that rather than "suggests" or "recommends", the KDE
global metapackage(s) "depends" on many of the unnecessary KDE
applications not just the real core apps, and the core apps "depends"
on the metapackage.
That's why the attempt to remove the application caused such a cascade
of removals. I do not believe that aptitude is going to make any
functional difference. Until we can urge a change in the dependency
levels, I believe this question will come up over and over again.
