I read this related link Installing suggested/recommended packages?
But my system(11.10) doesn't install suggested packages by default.
Was there a change?

When I do a command line
apt-get install foo, if the list of suggested packages looks interesting, I abort the command, and append the suggested packages to my command line. The way I understand it, "Suggested packages" are just that - suggestions. Maybe they'll help users of package
foo, maybe not. I want to decide for my self, and you can decide for yourself. Our mutual mileages may vary.
