Aptitude keeps telling me the following message:

 The following packages are RECOMMENDED but 
 will NOT be installed

However, I am not interested in this warning.

How to disable missing warnings about recommended packages in aptitude?


I think you're looking for the --without-recommends flag.

For a permanent solution, you can set

Aptitude::Ignore-Recommends-Important "true";

in your configuration file (~/.aptitude/config or system wide /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/*) as specified here
