Removing orphan packages with Pacman

Posted on Tue 18 September 2007 in Life • 1 min read

A quick Arch tip : Get the list of orphan packages (packages no longer needed by any other packages) in pacman by with

pacman -Qtdq

Then remove the packages using :

pacman -Rc package_name

Edit: Thanks JohnCC for correcting me.
