Can i delete "foomatic-db"?

My system is laptop, I have no printer and printer files at all
Can I remove the “foomatic” package completely?

Yes, just uninstall it, but make sure it doesn’t take any (real or false) dependencies with it. :point_down:

sudo pacman -Rdd foomatic-db

Either it should be removed along with dependencies … or its required for something.
Skipping (all in the case of two ds) dependency checks should not be so commonly suggested.

You are right
Of course, I didn’t really need it and I deleted all its dependencies foomatic*

Also, can I remove the glibc-locales package because there are no package dependencies when I remove it?

Also a non-required package.
(ex: sudo pacman -Rns glibc-locales)

I mean by deleting the 'glibc-locales` package, will there be any problems in running the other packages?

➤ sudo pacman -Rnc glibc-locales                                             
checking dependencies...

Package (1)    Old Version  Net Change 

glibc-locales  2.38-7       -213.33 MiB

Total Removed Size:  213.33 MiB

:: Do you want to remove these packages? [Y/n]

Understood. The answer is it is not required.

So still no unless you are using “Pregenerated locales for GNU C Library” somehow.
