    When you remove an application using a package manager (In your case most likely YaST or zypper), then the package manager is supposed to attempt to remove all parts of the file including dependencies that aren't required for another application, configuration files and personal files you created. These "other" files I listed have to be removed by hand. And, this all generally assumes that the package manifest is accurate.

    So, for example to remove an app named gambas3, you can run the following in a console
    Code:
    zypper rm gambas3

    Will NOT remove any dependencies from the package gamba3. If they are also dependencies from other packages or not.

    Removing dependencies is not trivial.

    But why would one try to remove a program that one does not need (anymore)? For a few MB of disk space? In any case, removing the package itself and not bothering about some of the dependent packages that may be sit there now unneeded, will make it impossible to run the application by incident, if that is where one is afraid of.
    Real clean up can then be done when going to a new openSUSE version in the future by doing an install instead of upgrade.

    Hi
    If you can remember the date, you can look at the zypper history file...
    Code:
    cut -d "|" -f 1-4 -s --output-delimiter " | " /var/log/zypp/history | grep -v " radd "
