Remove unused dependencies

Is it possible to remove all the dependencies on my machine that are no longer needed?

Re: Remove unused dependencies

pacman -Qdt

Will list all orphans.

pacman -Rsn $(pacman -Qdtq)

will remove them all.

But, think, and read the manual beforehand. wink

Re: Remove unused dependencies

Here's what it gives. Some of them I should definitely keep, like zip and unrar.
I thought this list would be way bigger.

http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman#Other_Usage :: Second quote from the end.

Also, to prevent orphans from piling up in the first place, pass the -s (aka --recursive) switch to pacman when removing packages.

Maybe he realized that this was a necrobump and tried to undo it.
