As people have poitned out, there is a lot of stuff that such a strategy

A more sensible approach would be to use tools like

* Padraig Brady's 'fslint'

(Mind you, all that could be done with 'find', but that's another matter.)

FSLint will clean more crud out of your system than the minor dot-file
detrius that LinuxIsOne talks of. BTDT.

But the package FSLint is not found in the Yast, even after I added
the contrib repo.

You didn't google, did you?

$ rpm -q -f $(which fslint-gui)
fslint-2.28-1.suse.noarch

I'm sure you can find more.

I'm getting really tired of telling you to "go google".
The answer is out there, and on the opensuse site no less.
This is a script package, not a compiled one, so you can use any tarball
you find via google. As you would have discovered if you'd googled and
read up on it.
