Uninstall steam and its games

i can’t find steam in my manjaro or cannot uninstall it as well
i have just 128GB SSD and .steam/share is using 30GB almost i cant even update my other apps
i search in my laptop there are two games CS (counter strike) and TM launcher for mincraft

i don’t play those game because i can’t due to graphic card or i am not interested such game
i have xbox for that i use my laptop just for smooth working

when i try to uninstall it i got error

[zeeshan@pits ~]$ sudo pacman -Rns steam
error: target not found: steam

but when i try to check i got this result

[zeeshan@pits ~]$ pacman -Ss steam
community/game-devices-udev 0.18-1
    Udev rules for controllers
community/gamescope 3.11.47-1

i think package is broken maybe
please guide me i will be thankful to you

As far as I know, the game data in your /home folder will not be removed when you uninstall steam, so you need to delete it yourself. It should mostly be found in your users ./local folder.

sudo pacman -Rns steam-native-runtime

You can delete ~/.steam/share manually afterwards.

Thank you for your quick response

here is result that i get after typing this command

[zeeshan@pits ~]$ sudo pacman -Rns steam-native-runtime
[sudo] password for zeeshan: 
error: target not found: steam-native-runtime

should I remove manually, it will harm my system ? or it will be safe ?

Yes you are right its in, actually .local/share when I check its have CS
here is screenshot https://i.imgur.com/LNfw1Yt.png

check if you have steam installed:
pacman -Qs steam
if you want to make some space, remove cache:
sudo pacman -Scc
clear your journal:
sudo journalctl --rotate
sudo journalctl -m --vacuum-time=1s

nothing happen with this command

so you dont have it installed… you can have it as snap though …

i don’t know how i have installed it but i can see with ncdu its taking my 29 GB https://i.imgur.com/ZwEJnEF.png

it will be okay if i removed with rm -rf .local/share ?

that is just a directory
a directory called “Steam”
in it are 29 GiB of data
the PATH is:

so delete just that directory - not the whole ~/.local/share with everything else in it
which is probably not all steam related

rm -rf ~/.local/share/Steam

Just find the directory and remove stream from there.

Thanks i have done this

can you please let me know what is this if its installation of softwares in snap can i make them in 1 directory or its working like this always ?

i don’t mind these in that way i just want to organize things and be good in manjaro

This is the way snaps work.

Perhaps this helps to get rid of older, duplicate ones:


The first answer there, marked with a green check mark, is the info that I mean.

two (or three?) versions of “core”
two times cornyjokes
two times discord
two times disk-space-saver
two times skype
four versions of gnome
two times whatsapp

perhaps some maintenance can reduce the space that is occupied?

I have never used snaps until now - and don’t intend to do so if I can avoid it.
