If there will be another mediaplayer (mplayer, totem)? kde-standard is a metapackage which pulls a standard set of packages which most KDE users would find useful (in our opinion). We think that a media player is mandatory nowadays. If you hate particular software, remove kde- standard (which is just a metapackage) and you'll be able to get rid of the dragonplayer. We do not aim nor can adhere to everybody's personal wishes. You can also choose from kde-minimal alike kde-plasma-desktop and kde-plasma- netbook but they are really minimal. > In case if kde-base really need mediaplayer: > Should is depend on it or just recommend? > Is it possible to use a dependency with alternatives? People have Recommends disabled so a media player is Depends. In fact, I could agree with sane alternative Depends. The problem is that there is no other official KDE SC media player. -- Modestas Vainius <firstname.lastname@example.org>
