How can I uninstall cronie cleanly?

Without triggering a discussion about the purpose of cronie: What is the most effective way to remove cronie from a freshly installed Manjaro?

Is sudo systemctl disable cronie.service followed by sudo pacman -R cronie enough or is there something else to do?

If you want to remove the dependencies also then you should run sudo pacman -Rns cronie

This is the recommended procedure:

systemctl disable --now cronie.service
systemctl mask cronie.service
sudo pacman -Rns cronie

Be aware that this could affect timeshift. If you are using timeshift better skip the pacman command.

Thanx @Wollie @sayan
