I know how to uninstall programs, the problem is, sometimes when I do uninstall a program, it's gone but the dependencies it needed are still on the system, it's these many unused packages I want to eliminate.
For example, if a program once asked for me to install the package "gettext", i'd install it to satisfy the dependency. But if i no longer use that program, I would like to remove all the dependencies as well. I don't see how to remove all these many packages that are not in use.
Is there a way to make suse detect what files aren't used? I seem to remember somewhere an option saying remove unmaintained packages. Is this what i'm looking for? I can't remember where I saw that.
