So you just installed Garuda Linux and want to know how to get rid of packages you don't use or complain about bloat? Its quite easy - I'll show you how 😁
Using Pamac is most likely the easiest way of dealing with packages you want to get rid of unneeded packages if you aren't familiar with the terminal. Keep in mind Pamac is not installed in every edition out of the box - KDE for example uses Octopi which sadly does not provide a list of explicitly installed packages which means you could potentially uninstall an important package and break your system this way.
The terminal way is a bit harder to complete but serves as excellent training to get more familiar with our beloved terminal. Another advantage is that we don't rely on a third party application to manage our packages rather than using Pacman directly. Here is the procedure:
pacman -Qeto list all explicitly installed packages and search for packages you want to remove
pacman -Ss somepackageto find out its purpose
sudo pacman -Rns package1 package2 package3- this will remove all packages and their respective dependencies which aren't required anymore from the system
