Dependency issues

Asked by stoyboy on 2008-07-24

The package for cryptkeeper says that it is dependent on nautilus which should not be the case because cryptkeeper actually can run with any file manager and it just so happens that the default one is nautilus, but can be changed to be dolphin or any others. This dependency causes hassles for me because it forces apt to install all those gnome libraries when all I want is to run cryptkeeper on my KDE Desktop without all those extra libraries that i don't need or use. In my case the default file manager was changed in the settings of cryptkeeper and that was an easy change. This simple change eliminates the need for nautilus and all those gnome libraries yet I am unable to uninstall them as it tries to get rid of cryptkeeper in the process. Why is the package dependent on nautilus, can it be changed, and how can nautilus and all those extra packages be removed from my system without getting rid of the cryptkeeper package?
