apt-get is really great. However, when you want to install an application, you often are forced to install a lot of dependencies which I believe are very often optional.
For example, I want to install
okular and I'm ask to install 97 packages / 233MB ! That is a lot. I particularly dislike that it wants me to install
nepomuk and a lot of other stuff that has nothing to do with PDF viewing per se, and which implies demons, and many of which are clearly optional but not necessary.
Question: How to do minimal install with
apt-get for a given package, with only the necessary componentents to get the thing run? It's ok if some features disabled at first.
