[SOLVED] Pacman not detecting not required package

Hi,

i build transmission-cli using

asp checkout transmission-cli 
with commit 4960e73

A bunch of make packages were installed, when tried to remove them some packages were not detecting by pacman. See the screenshot.

Please tell me, if any more info is needed.

Thanks

From what I see from the screenshot, libappindicator-gtk is an optdepend for cpupower-gui. So supposely it was installed explicitely. Is this your question?

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman not detecting not required package

I got to a computer where imgur works ... still this should be posted as text.  But there is no problem here.  You show commands indicating that a package is an optional dependency for another package.  The you show that this package is not listed in the output of `pacman -Qdt`.  That's expected.  Read pacman's man page for the difference between one and two -t flags.

Hi guys, thank you. That was exactly what i was looking. Since the package was optionally needed, it didn't show in -Qdt.
