Question about uninstalling Steam

When I want to uninstall Steam saueber after a fresh installation of Manjaro, I do it with

sudo pacman -Rns steam-manjaro game-devices-udev

However, xorg-xrandr, lsof and zenity are then uninstalled as well, which I then have to install again and again. How can this be prevented?

Either skip using the -s flag if you don’t want to recursively remove the dependencies or explicitly install the packages you want to keep. In your case the latter would probably work out the best.


So that would be

sudo pacman -D --asexplicit xorg-xrandr lsof zenity

before uninstall Steam?

Exactly. :+1:
