Remove gnome-panel, keep dependencies?

I’m trying to remove gnome-panel to replace it with avant window navigator as system default. For now I’ve just disabled gnome-panel as startup session, but it bothers me to know I have it installed without using it. Trying to remove it, I get this message as seen in the picture below.

Is there a command to remove a software but keep dependencies? sudo zypper rm gnome-panel -exclude *****?

It’ s better to keep it and not use it if you don’t want to.

He is right I had problems with panels on my friend’s pc. Fortunatelly we fixed it. Don’t remove it!!!

Always Friendly!!!:wink:

I would also recommend just keeping the package installed

Thanks for the reply everyone! I guess I will keep it then. Hopefully this thread can be useful for someone else in the future.

I’m sure it will :slight_smile:
