Question Unistalling nepomuk and/or akonadi?


I have disable nepomuk file indexing and I have been thinking about removing the following packages: nepomuk, akonadi, and strigi. Is there anything that I should be concern? Has anyone else tried (removing) them?
I read this blog http://thomasmcguire.wordpress.com/2...igi-explained/ and other topics on this forum and google it and it seems that there is not problem removing them, but I want to be sure. So if you have removed these packages and got not problem would you please share your experience here?

I remove akonadi and disable nepomuk & strigi on all my boxes.
I once removed strigi and kde wouldn't start. (from init4)

Ditto (from init3).
KDE will work without akonadi, but, apparently, strigi has to be installed.
Remember to go to "System Setting" > "Startup & Shutdown" > "Service Manager"
> "Startup Service" and disable "Nepomuk Search Module."

No need to remove Akonadi.

Just edit ~/.config/akonadi/akonadiserverrc and set “StartServer” to false.

Works for me!

If you are not going to use it, why not un-install it? One less package cluttering up the system.

@arodlinux,
What did you think of Xfce?

If you are not using KDE then blacklisting kdepim-whatever is OK, but several of the KDE widgets have been made part kdepim, e.g., the clocks and calendars, so you will be without those items unless you re-install kdepim.
That right there, is reason enough for me not to use KDE.
There will come a time in the not too distance future when the KDE developers will make more of KDE desktop, item by item, dependent on the "Evil Triplets" so might as well get rid of KDE now.

I would really like to see a real world, practical demonstration of of how the "Evil Triplets" are a daily benefit to the end user.

@ cwizardone

So far is been a few (3 or 4) days using Xfce, and the more I use it the more I like it. Kde still my default desktop but that is about to change. I just giving a week of trial to encounter all possible scenarios, but Xfce is great specially when it come to resources. Another thing is the only kde application that I use is amarok, and that too is about to change for clementine or any other lightweight player ( I got an extense music library, any suggestion accepted).

The only thing that I did not like about Xfce in default state was the fonts, but I installed all windows vista fonts and make a few tweaks and I can say that my desktop is more "clear" now. However, there is another thing that I don't like about Xfce and that is Thunar the default file manager. Is faster than dolphin and get the job down but I don't know what is that I don't like (is probably me Kde addiction kicking back). Other that I had used Kde only for a few minutes, not more than 10, at the time and always I go back to Xfce. I am a happy camper!

That will probably come back and bite you one day, that package is split out from seamonkey for people like you so you get the functionality without the bloat.

Sounds familiar.
That is how I started using Xfce. Tried it and the more I used it the better I liked it until I eventually stopped using KDE. Every time a new version of KDE comes out I download it and try it and each time it makes me more convinced switching to Xfce was the right decision.
However, there are still a couple of KDE applications I like and you can use most KDE applications in Xfce.
You can run Dolphin in Xfce, if you prefer. In the Xfce settings under "Session and Startup" then "Advanced" there is a "compatibility setting" to "Launch KDE services on startup." In theory it is suppose to make KDE applications start up faster in Xfce, but I've never noticed the difference. In the settings menu under "Preferred Applications" you can change the default file manager to whatever you like.
Right from the start I've found the Xfce desktop to be clearer and easier on the eyes than the KDE desktop and haven't felt the need to change any fonts, but each to their own. It would be a boring world if we all liked the same things.
I do have to agree with Wildwizard. If you are not using SeaMonkey, then it is a good idea to have seamonkey-solibs installed. One or the other, you don't need both.
I would like to see a gui menu editor added to Xfce. Other than that, Xfce 4.10 has been a very good DE.

After a little bit of reading I decide to install it back. However I had to remove from blacklist seamonkey and seamonkey-solibs so the last one can be recognized.

Now I going to do the tweaks that cwizardone recommended.
