UnusedPkg is a diagnostic tool to search the oldest unused packages in your Linux system. UnusedPkg prints a sorted list with the size and number of days that a package has been idle. This helps you determine what packages can be manually removed to clean the system. It supports any apt-based distribution (tested on Debian and Ubuntu) and Slackware.

Then, UnusedPkg checks the "access time" (verifiable with ls -alu filename or stat -c %x filename). As said, this timestamp is update by any file data request, like ldconfig library check. I hope it can be useful and thank you for downloading UnusedPkg =)
