Try again with:

rpm -e $(rpm -qa '*epomuk*''*akonadi*' | egrep -v 'libakonadi|libnepomuk')

If you have installed and run some stuff (like kmail) that actually
uses libnepomuk/libakonadi, you need those. I don't. And neither k3b
nor Firefox need them to run.

Better, but ...

I now get a much shorter list.
It wants to drop kdepim, which is OK, but also
kdeplasma-addons-libs and kdeplasma-addons
which isn't.

All of which misses the real point.
Why does k3b even need nepomuk?
I ask that because it can function quite well without the various codecs. Not everyone uses k3b to burn music CDs from ~/Music/*.
Some of us just use it to burn .iso files, such as the latest release of Suse.

Perhaps we need a repository of the various KDE tools that don't need nepomuk, that have been compiled without the need for the nepomuk libraries.

The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of
meeting schedules is forgotten.
