Can removing Noto font be an issue?


Since Noto is a system font that ship with the distro, I wanted to know if uninstalling the noto-fonts and noto-fonts-compat packages could be an issue for some apps that might be configured to use it by default (or whatever other reason)?

The reason I want to remove it is that it annoys me that it has some 50+ entries in the font picker that I have to scroll through, and since I only care about rendering the Latin character set, it’s not useful to me.

This should not be major problem.

No need to uninstall them. You can disable the visible selection of fonts via the Font Management section in System Settings, under Appearance.

I just tried uninstalling it, and it gave me an error saying it is a dependency for matray. So thanks for this solution!

FYI, that package was removed from the repos recently and can be removed regardless.

I did it this way:
