Delete or not? More than 195 packets


I’m a new user of Linux… and surfing through internet i have found the command “sudo pacman -Rns $(pacman -Qtdq)”

The problem is that it have 195 packets… so I don’t know if delete everything or not?

What should i do?

Thank you in advance!

Hi @josesi,

Thank you for checking first and not just doing.

Are you trying to do anything specific?
What is your aim?

If it is simply removing orphan packages, I use:

pamac remove --orphans

…and have generally had no problems.

Hope this helps!


Thank for your answer.

My aim is simply removing orphan packages, as you say…
