Description:
I run deluge on a headless server, and it'd be nice to not have to install anything relating to xdg or X. I've tried running with these packages removed with pacman -Rdd for a few weeks and experienced no issues. Would it be possible to make these packages optional?

Python-xdg is used to define the configuration directory, it has nothing to do with user interfaces.

The functions which run subprocess.Popen using xdg-open are indeed only used by the gtk UI.

@smmalis37 - For your use case, you might be interested in the split PKGBUILD I created: https://github.com/graysky2/deluge-split

@graysky,

Your split PKGBUILD does not answer the primary purpose of this bug ticket at all, since its -common subpackage depends on xdg-open and python-xdg despite those being what the OP wishes moved to the gtk UI only (the former being a valid discussion point, the latter being wrong).
