I have a list of packages installed via
apt and would like to eliminate all packages that are dependencies of another package already in that list:
those are over 400 packages but most of them are installed due to some others in that list.
How can I minify that list and stick to the main real interesting programs from that list?
Somehow I have to use this: How to find the packages that depend on a certain package in apt?
Or is there an easier way to distinguish between interesting programs and small helper packages that are installed with the main programs?
