[http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/KDE#Icons In this section], when using the "Manual procedure" one can't write into ~/.gtkrc-2.0 because it only links to ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4 so any changes should go there.

Minimal installation

Minimal installation could be better: suggested kdebase contains program that probably are not used so much (Konqueror, Kwrite), KDE should work fine without kdepasswd and keditbookmarks too. Wallpaper are useless. If available, an option of any kind to completely disable Phonon would be nice, since using ALSA to media playing in Linux is enough, and Phonon is overkill. -- Flu (talk) 11:56, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
