After taking a look at the review of Manjaro 17.02 "Xfce" at this week's DistroWatch (https://www.distrowa...mode=67#manjaro), I saw the following regarding Antergos, posted by "linuxista" in the comments section:

Until you get rid of that extra Antergos repo, I wouldn't call it "raw Arch." The Antergos repo is much more extensive than other Arch respins, like the late Apricity, Archbang, Archlabs, etc., which generally just have some theming and maybe a Chrome binary. The Antergos repo has all the packages for most of the DEs, as well as a larger selection of other binaries that are normally just available in the AUR.

I do not think that the "Antergos repo has all the packages for most of the DEs."

Well, one thing I've done here is change the repo priority so that packages from the [antergos] repo have the lowest priority. By default, the [antergos] repo was listed first in /etc/pacman.conf, but I have things in this order right now:

[core]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[extra]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[community]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[antergos]
SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist

Anyway, to check to see what exactly is in the [antergos] repo, I ran the following (I think this is the correct command to use):

$ pacman -Sl antergos

I was gonna post the output here but... is there a way to post it so that readers could scroll down through the code box instead of everything in the code box being visible at once? I'm feeling like it would be kinda rude to post all of the output from that command here, even though some might be interested in seeing it.

Anyway, looks to me like the [antergos] repo contains the Cinnamon and MATE desktops, but for KDE and GNOME I see a few packages that I don't think are the entire desktops -- looks like they're just setup configuration packages for KDE and GNOME in Antergos:

antergos-gnome-setup 0.0.2-1
antergos-kde-setup 0.1.8-3

Plus, a few other packages, like some GNOME Shell extensions. I don't see anything for Xfce in the [antergos] repo.

In any case, I'm using Openbox in Antergos, not any of the full DEs.

Well you could always post a pastebin type link. I prefer ix for this.

pacman -S ix && pacman -Sl antergos > pkg && ix pkg

That will give you a ix.io link to post here

As far as Antegros repo, I believe most of the stuff is simply Antegros branded packages with a couple of AUR packages mixed in. You could easily enough remove it by commenting out(or removing) the repo and run
pacman -Syy && pacman -Syu

That should remove most all of the Antegros branded packages.

Or run this:
sudo pacman -R (paclist antergos | awk '{print $1}')

Okay. I think ix is in AUR now, though. Can't simply attach a text file here?

Thanks -- I don't want to remove the Antergos packages; I was just checking to see what's actually available in the [antergos] repo (because of what that person posted).

I haven't used pastebin before, but here's a link to the output of the pacman -Sl antergos command here, for those who might be interested: https://pastebin.com/r0fHTyhG
