Description ev 2020-08-21 10:00:50 UTC
When installing pcsc-tools to be installed 103 new packages including wayland, libX..., adwaita-icon-theme and more others. IMHO its too many and clutters systems.

It might be worth minimizing junk dependencies?

There are no junk dependencies. gscriptor is a GTK application, which results in whole X11 being pulled in.

If you don't need gscriptor, you can provide a patch to build the package without gscriptor
Comment 2 ev 2020-08-21 16:03:34 UTC
gscriptor is an perl script. When installed it on the system, it does not require dependencies.

Maybe remove GTK from dependencies, and after installation display a message about requiring gtk for gscriptor?
