Does ***Gnumeric*** take up tons of disk space? It uses some Gnome stuff.

I already have some of the dependencies but I do not have things like desktop-file-utils, gnome-common, gnome-doc-utils, gobject-introspection, goffice. I suspect that my use of gnumeric will be experimental and then light if at all so I would abandon this idea if it takes a lot of space. I'm looking at the gnome stuff and recalling that it might be huge. Is this correct?

I'm trying to set up a workflow with LyX where LyX imports a spreadsheet or CSV file and reflects changes made to the file inside LyX, automatically, The LyX wiki says to use Gnumeric but in fact uses only ssconvert.
