I want to install Krita on Debian Xfce but I am worried that installing Krita will also install all the Kde related stuff and will bog down my system. Installing Kde components is not an issue, however my main worry is if the Kde components will try to run in the system even when I do not run Krita.

How does does it work if I install Krita on Xfce or Gnome? Are my worries real issue? I just would like to keep my system light, but at the same time I need Krita on my system.

+1 I only have KDE stuff installed because of Krita, and I am currently fighting with a problem where those components keep changing my default mime applications for PDF files to Krita :( – hochl May 10 '14 at 12:53
I came across your question in the unanswered questions pool. Did you ever find out the answer? Still need an answer? Overtaken by events and no longer need an answer? – fixer1234 Jul 17 '15 at 7:34
