How to remove a program's leftovers

Hi there,

When a given program is removed (eg. dnf remove, dnf autoremove), it leaves behind config files in various places, like .cache, .config, .local, etc.

on debian’s Synaptic there is a checkbox that reads “completely uninstall program” that clears these, but I don’t see this option on dnfdragora,

Is there a tool to safely remove this files?


This is a misunderstanding.
System package managers like APT or DNF do not touch user profiles.
