• Terminal commands


    Hi all,

    Under Linux Mint, i always use the following terminal commands to clean up my system:

    • sudo apt autoclean

    • sudo apt autoremove

    • sudo apt clean

    What is the equivalent of the above commands under Arch/Antergos?

    Thanks!

  • Morning @nomko

    I was going to list out the commands for you here but I’m still quite new myself and not entirely sure if they would do the exact same thing for you. You can find more information here:

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/pacman#Cleaning_the_package_cache

    I’m sure one of the other guys will be able to give you the exact commands though! :)

  • Right! pacman -Sc = will clean cache and pacman -Scc = will clean cache and unused repository

  • @nomko , you re welcome! Could we consider it as “SOLVED”, then?

  • @anarch Thanks for posting a link comparing package manager commands. I’ve a question for the moderators here since I am new to the forum.
    When I post a question and it is solved, is there a way for me to mark [solved] or should I ask a moderator to do this…I can find no way to mark it myself. Thanks for moderating a great forum!

    Look down below on the right-hand corner. It s in the “Topic Tools” button.
    Thanks for your kind words
