Occassionally when I run
apt-get, I get:
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: : (list of packages)
This occurs often with the packages that I heavily use. However, because they are not used by the OS, the error message itself makes sense if
required means OS is the one used to require those packages.
How can I stop this to happen / let OS know that I need these packages?
Since there ARE cases when this notification is actually useful (eg. packages that OS used to require are no longer in need AND I do not used them too), I prefer solution/workaround that allows case-by-case setting.
