An APT tweak ?

In my former life using Devuan (that uses .deb package files), I had a file
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/40nosuggestrecommends

containing

Apt::Install-Suggests false;
Apt::Install-Recommends false;

to stop apt-get from installing suggests and recommends.

Can one do something similar in PCLinuxOS ?

Re: An APT tweak ?

This is definitely not an Xfce related question, but still:

The correct syntax in recent versions appears to be:

APT::Install-Suggests "0";
APT::Install-Recommends "0";

You can put this in /etc/apt/apt.conf (which no longer exists by default) or in a file such as 99local (or 40nosuggestrecommends) in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d.

Watch out for any other files in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d which may override your settings.

Though maybe you should ask in the PcLinuxOS forum for further advice and caveats.

Grovelling apologies, was  browsing both XFCE and PClinuxOS fora (forums ?) at the same time, and posted in the wrong one.

Thanks for your kind help.
