I was speaking from the point of view that if you install a debian based distro you have all this stuff installed and if you uninstall something it still leaves packages behind that were recommends.

sudo apt autoremove

would not that clean also recomended packages?

Re: October 2020 Screenshot Thread

No not always - some files get "hijacked"

one of the reasons I use:

sudo apt install --no-install-recommends

I do not have "ghostwriter" on my system but:

aptitude show ghostwriter

will show me: depends, recommends and suggested  packages.

After removing ghostwriter I can always do a

aptitude why filename

if I think there are leftovers seen in:

aptitude show ghostwriter

Lots of work!

Re: October 2020 Screenshot Thread

I guess I take a slightly more passive approach. I'm not worried about a few packages getting left out if I remove something with autoremove --purge, but I will take a look at outputs for both install and install --no-install-recommends when I'm adding a major package and make a decision. I can always remove and reinstall if I change my mind. But, I run stable, your way sounds better running testing or sid.

Maybe every few months when I'm bored I run dpkg -l and scroll through the list to see what I have. Occasionally I remove something. Also, the package list running apt upgrade sometimes looks odd (not something I remember installing or using), and I'll investigate it and sometimes remove a package or two.

Re: October 2020 Screenshot Thread

@Sector11 thanks, that "hijacking of recommends" explanation makes sense. lGFB0eq.gif

@hhh that's usually what I do too. ( I caught a suspicious geolocation daemon the other day that had crept in with some Gnome utility I was testing. XdcAYOB.gif )

Re: October 2020 Screenshot Thread

@ John - I thought you would have known about that since the #! days, that's where I learned about it.  It was the reason these came about if anyone cares to have them:

alias up2='sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade --no-install-recommends'
alias sup2='sudo apt update && apt upgrade --no-install-recommends --simulate'

alias get='sudo apt install --no-install-recommends'
alias getr='sudo apt install'
alias sget='apt install --no-install-recommends --simulate'
alias sgetr='apt install --simulate'

alias rget='sudo apt install --reinstall --no-install-recommends'
alias rgetr='sudo apt install --reinstall'
alias srget='apt install --reinstall --no-install-recommends --simulate'
alias srgetr='apt install --reinstall --simulate'

alias aremv='sudo apt-get autoremove --purge'
alias saremv='apt-get autoremove --purge --simulate'
alias remv='sudo apt remove'
alias sremv='apt remove --simulate'
alias prg='sudo apt-get purge'
alias sprg='apt-get purge --simulate'

among others, because we all know about my "tpyo" skills

## CHECK DEPENDENCIES OF PACKAGES
##   depends shows a listing of each dependency a package has and all the
##   possible other packages that can fulfill that dependency.
alias dep='echo "alias dep=apt-cache depends" && apt-cache depends'
##   rdepends shows a listing of each reverse dependency a package has.
alias rdep='echo "alias apt-cache rdepends filename" && apt-cache rdepends'
##        or OMG it's a list of depends depending on depends
alias rrdep='echo "alias apt-rdepends filename" && apt-rdepends'

## check
##   check is a diagnostic tool && it updates the package cache and checks for
##   broken dependencies.
##   S11 NOTE: Doesn't work if autoclean or autoremove was used - obvious
alias check='echo "sudo apt-get check" && sudo apt-get check'

## If you want to see why apt decided to remove it though, run this command (it's in simulation mode)
alias seewhy='LANG=C apt dist-upgrade -s -o Debug::pkgProblemResolver=1'

My alias file and functions file have been following me around since my very early days with Linux.  Some date back to by first distro, Ubu.

Now back the un-hijacking this thread .... I AM ROOT!
2020-10-24-113348-S11.jpg<-->  2020-10-24-113142-S11.jpg
S11 ROOT!  Now there's a scary thought.

I always wondered why it wasn't 'upgradeable', I guess the developers were Brits...

I have a WIP scrot.cloud version of that imgur upload script (and an ImgBB one as well), which I stopped working on after completing the BL script. It is a bit simpler, but requires an existing account. If there is any interest I could try finishing it...

EDIT: I remember why I stopped working on it! There doesn't seem to be an API available for authorizing and uploading via code sad  I can open the relevant user account page, but from there uploading probably needs to be done manually.

I've travelled from north to south on the North Island, but never been to the South Island, which is kind of back to front for a tourist in NZ!   Just the way it worked out.  Hopefully I can get back to Australia soon and then be part of the NZ/Aust travel bubble.
