Description

Kindly include an option in YAST to force removal of .<NAME> Folders when un-installing or de-installing applications through YAST

User benefit:

Kindly include an option in YAST to force removal of.<NAME>Folders when un-installing or de-installing applications through YAST My home directory is now loaded now with crappy . folders that are driving me crazy.It is tedious to find and remove folders when we uninstall and application Sometimes these folders names are different from that of the application itself,hence the deleting them has become a chore by itself

This would be good, although only if it's optional - by default the package manager shouldn't touch anything in users' home directories.

but how you will added what directories or files you want want to delete? If you have this information than you can remove manually right? Maybe Yast Installer should have an option to like debianĀ“s "purge"..
