Why pacman suggest to delete some imporatant and usefull packages? I think I need kernel, nvidia drivers, gnome settings etc.
pacman say when you try removing the same package?
Hi. If you want to keep some of the orphaned packages you can mark them as explicitly installed with this command:
sudo pacman -D --asexplicit <package>
man pacman for details
oh, Im not expert and dont know which of them are necessary. I thought this would work like sudo apt-get autoremove on Debian based distros.
This is a known bug in pamac
Arch packaging is different than Debian packaging.
pacman -Qi <package> - will show you information about the package, required/dependency/optional
Even better, you can use
pamac info <package> - will show you information even for packages that are not installed.
Based on that information you can decide what to do.
