    Default TW Getting rid of KDE apps

    Hi all

    This is a newbie question. Still finding my way around TW.

    Installed TW with KDE and all well so far. I removed the most of the KDE and PIM apps as I am not a fan of them.

    So I just updated my system with zypper dup and I notice that it now installs all the removed applications again.

    The following 7 applications are going to be installed:
    Akregator digiKam KAddressBook KMail Kontact KOrganizer Showfoto



    How can I change this without manually excluding the packages from being installed everytime I update the system?

    Thanks a mil in advance

    Use 'zypper addlock'. For example, remove 'showfoto', then do
    Code:
    # zypper al showfoto
    Specified lock has been successfully added.
    When an attempt is made to install it again it will be prevented unless lock is removed...
    Code:
    # zypper in showfoto
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    Problem: conflicting requests
     Solution 1: remove lock to allow installation of showfoto-5.5.0-2.11.x86_64[repo-oss]
     Solution 2: do not ask to install a solvable providing showfoto.x86_64 = 5.5.0-2.11
    
    Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/c] (c):
