Whenever I install LyX using sudo apt-get install lyx, then I find packages like texlive-fonts-recommended-doc,texlive-latex-base-doc,texlive-latex-extra-doc, etc. among the dependencies. Some of these files are huge (texlive-latex-extra-doc is 190MB), and they all seem to be documentation files.

Do I really need to install these for using LyX? If not, then how do i avoid it?

They should be only Recommended packages, so that you can avoid to install them by issuing in the first place the command

sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install lyx
