comment How to remove recommended and suggested dependencies of uninstalled packages?
@Braiam That's your POV. I live pretty well with InstallRecommends disabled. For the record, it was disabled by default until Debian Squeeze released, that is since February 2011 (don't know about Ubuntu). Furthermore, you may not need the same configuration on a server or a desktop setup.

@Braiam This is not what the OP asked though. Your comment is for him, not for me.

You're stating the obvious: if you uninstall them by hand one by one, then yes, you will get rid of them; but the OP is complaining because: "Y is not automatically removed". See my answer.
