According to pacman. "pacman -Qdt" lists all unneeded dependencies, including those that are optional. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Us … OptDepends says that it shouldn't be the case in pacman 4.1, but it is. Is there another way of listing orphans and not optional dependencies? Other than setting them to manually installed.

Hmm it says "Output related tasks are implemented in pacman-4.1". Actually, you are the one who put it there Anyway, is it a work in progress? I imagine that something like this isn't too high of a priority, but it's a nice feature to have.
Output related task are:
- pacman -Qi shows "Optional for: ..."
- Removing an optdepend gives a warning
- the notification of new optdepends when installing packages show if they are already installed or not.
and that is about it...
Well, I hope it gets implemented soon. In the meantime I'm setting this thread to solved.
Thanks Xyne, your pkg-list_true_orphans script seems to work like a charm
