[arch-general] Question about mariadb replacing mysql

With the move to mariadb I have the following situation:

I am not explicitely running mysqld so checking the status with systemctl
shows it is inactive.

However I am running KDE as my desktop.

After doing the suggested install after ensuring that mysqld is stopped:
pacman -S mariadb libmariadbclient mariadb-clients

and accepting the install of these packages with removal of mysql
equivalents, I then find that there is a private instance of mysql running
by the KDE desktop:

ps -eaf | egrep mysql
mike       660   657  0 Mar23 ?        00:00:42 /usr/bin/mysqld
mike      9747   761  0 13:39 pts/3    00:00:00 egrep mysql

So does any expert know whether a mysql_upgrade is necessary for KDE and if
so how does one go about doing that upgrade?
