Thank you,

that does work. In addition I added the file
to /etc/pacman.conf's NoExtract.

There's still something I need to monitor. It might be related or
unrelated to dunst. When dunst is installed and enabled Evolution
works without an issue, if dunst is installed but disabled, Evolution
works in slow motion. There wasn't this particular issue before I installed
dunst. Now after a reboot dunst wasn't started, but Evolution
misbehaves. It might be unrelated, just happen randomly. I don't know.
