    Default Uninstall

    Hello,
    I need a little help with Tumbleweed.
    I don't know how to uninstall programs.
    I mean, I want to uninstall "games". I remove games + pattern + all libraries I find (patterns-kde-kde_games, libkdegames-lang, libkf5kdegames6, patterns-games-games etc.) but when I write "zypper dup", games was installed by default.
    How can I get rid of "games" or another pattern?
    Thank you.

    Open Yast software management, search patterns and mark the appropriate pattern(s) to never install. You do this by right clicking .
    You can also do
    Code:
    zypper al <appropriate pattern - name in full>

    Thank you.
    I don't like to use yast too much. I think that it is one of the greatest tools I ever see in a linux distribution but I am don't want to forget the command line.
    Thank you for al (addlock) command. I am new in Suse and I have some problems with zypper (BTW another great tool).

    2 | kde_games | package | (any)

    aaa:~ # zypper dup

    Well, you locked the *packages* games and kde_games (which don't exist), but not the *patterns*.

    Run this instead to lock a pattern:
    Code:
    zypper al -t pattern name_of_pattern(s)
    I.e. in your case:
    Code:
    zypper al -t pattern games kde_games
    Or, as a pattern is actually a package with a name like patterns-openSUSE-name_of_pattern , you could also do something like this instead:
    Code:
    zypper al patterns-openSUSE-games patterns-openSUSE-kde_games

    Thank you for the answer.
    It is working with "zypper al -t pattern games". I used "
    zypper al games". And I locked a package not a pattern. My mistake.
    Thank you all for helping a beginner in Opensuse.

    I use
    Code:
     # zypper dup --no-recommends
    to dissuade various packages that I have removed from being reloaded.

    The more I read I realize that zypper is a very powerful package manager.
    Until a few days ago I thought that pacman is the best package manager but now I am starting to think that I was wrong.

    You should not be surprised. You should get information from
    Code:
    man zypper
