Cleaning up your arch packages is a bit of a chore. The key document listing the pacman invocations you will need is pacman/Tips and tricks (ArchWiki).
The basic flow I use is:
-R) any that I don't explicitly want,
pacman -Rns $(pacman -Qtdq)).
I always end up with a bunch of KDE packages installed which I find annoying because it makes my upgrades go a lot slower due to their size and frequency of update. They must be pulled in by one of my explicit installs. Time to generate some dependency graphs:
Pactree reveals that krita is pulling in all those KDE packages. Well, I want to keep krita so I guess I'll put up with them :D.
My commercial thermal label printer just arrived. Label all the things!!!

I'm just in Portland this week and the last week in June!
I'm scheduling several opportunities for group hangouts, or hit me up for a bike ride/park time/whatever.
After that I'll be gone at least for the Summer/early Fall travelling and visiting my mom in S Oregon, possibly much longer as I'm considering living abroad in Europe for awhile.
Hey, is anybody in my network going to Toorcamp next week? I'm going to bike/train/ferry there!
