,----[ /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/00local ]
| // Aptitude should purge autoremoved packages
| Aptitude::Purge-Unused true;
Many thanks !!
Still i wonder, why is this not installation default ... ?
Deleting user data automatically is impolite (<-- understatement).
Normally config files are small, and they can't be recovered by the
package system (whereas the rest of the package can just be
reinstalled), so aptitude leaves it to the user to decide when they
should be purged.
