pkgtool- removepkg- removing unmarked packages


Hi, I was using pkgtool to remove geeqie image viewer since I installed another image viewer. When I ran removepkg to remove geeqie, pkgtool also uninstalled fonttosfnt-1.0.4-i486-1 and foomatic-filters-4.0.12-i486-1. Should I reinstall these? Or does anyone know why that happened? Thanks.

Well, if you are like me, I accidentally selected more than I wanted to take out. I would re-install them. Its very easy to hit a spacebar while scrolling through the packages.

I guess I will reinstall these but I still feel certain I only hit the spacebar once. Wonder what happened.

EDIT: I'm assuming I had to of marked these myself. Nothing else makes sense.
