The last time I used
sudo apt-get autoremove, nearly every important display driver or parts got deleted. This made me very squeamish about using the command again. However, each time I install something or use
apt-get update the terminal reads:
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: devilspie libturbojpeg:i386 libxrandr-ltsr2 language-pack-kde-en kde-l10n-engb language-pack-kde-en-base libxv1:i386 libllvm3.2 libllvm3.2:i386 linux-generic-lts-raring Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
I tried the command
clean and the messages stops displaying for a while. My question is whether it's safe running the
autoremove command, or will I lose everything once again? Is there a way of checking how safe it is to use
autoremove in this particular (or any) case?
