[Question] New Pacman alias

Post by BloodWolf » Mon Aug 27, 2018 5:06 pm

We already have a few pacman aliases for installing software.
Why not one for removing/uninstalling?

alias purge="sudo pacman -Rsn"

Removing packages can give you "disastreous" results as it can delete too much if you are a bit too fast.

Therefore I leave it up to the users to make an alias.

They should read the manual of pacman -R and decide what to do themselves.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
and only then use the power of our moderators.
