When installing a package using apt-get install package a list of "Suggested packages" is displayed. What command can be used to print it again?

Here are a couple additional options:

  1. apt-cache depends <package_name> will give you dependency info about a package (installed or not) including Suggests.

  2. apt-rdepends -s Suggests <package_name> will list the Suggests for a package and its dependencies. The apt-rdepends command is provided by its own package, apt-ly named apt-rdepends (forgive the pun).
