https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hi Guys,Is it possible to prevent pacman/yaourt from downloading KDE wallpapers and artwork?I'm assuming these are the files that are used as the pre-installed desktop wallpaper options, so is there a distinction between useful files (like icons etc) and useless files (like pretty backgrounds) and if so is there a way to prevent the useless ones from being redownloaded?MOTIVATION: I'm seeing artwork packages accounting for nearly 300Mb of an 800Mb update, I'm in South Africa on a 386k ( no not K ) (shared, at best) line so this is quite annoying. And yep I did search before post (HowTos)
