I think I found what inflated my / system by roughly 2GB.
Tons of "texlive" packages have been added.
what did you install that requires tex*
rpm -q --whatrequires texlive
should answer your question

The following gave 886 lines, as user and as root, I copy the first and the
last line.

rpm -q --whatrequires texlive | sort > atemp_what_requires.txt


then rpm -q --whatrequires texlive | grep -v tex

perhaps requirements changed for a package you have installed.
rpm -qa *tex*
provides 8 packages on my Tw and the only texlive package is a font

on my computer, as root and as user,
rpm -qa *tex*
no output???

then: rpm -qa |grep -v tex

The only thing I changed was installing Libreoffic 5.2. I have removed it
now an use the one from Tumbleweed.

Could you help me with the appropriate zypper settings for removing texlive.
An important one I found already --dry-run.

zypper -v rm texlive

I don't understand "--dry-run" as I always have to confirm zypper actions
unless I use "-y" and I don't.

but really, using "SuSe for 15 "expletive" interesting years" should have
provided you with the knowledge to figure out these things yourself,
unless you count sitting in front of a monitor as using ....

expletive deleted!
