apt-get install debfoster

debfoster is a lifesaver. this is its output to show u what it does

kdebase is keeping the following 33 packages installed:
eject enscript gv kappfinder kate kcontrol kdebase-bin kdebase-data
kdebase-kio-plugins kdeprint kdesktop kdm kfind khelpcenter kicker klipper
kmenuedit konqueror konqueror-nsplugins konsole kpager kpersonalizer
ksmserver ksplash ksysguard ksysguardd ktip lesstif1 libkonq4 libsensors3
poster psutils xaw3dg
Keep kdebase? [Ynpsiuqx?], [H]elp:

its works pretty well most of the time

# dpkg --purge <package>

then do the debfoster bit, then:

# apt-get clean (just to make sure)

Debfoster will ask you if you want to keep 'apache2' if you say yes (y), it will purge all of them, within apache2.

no, to remove all you need to push 'p' for "prune"

that will remove all the packages
