Cleaning up packages

Installing software in Kubuntu is really simple. Just launch Adept Manager, select the package you want and install it. The software is then installed automatically, as are any additional packages it depends upon.

Unfortunately, when removing the software again, any dependent packages that were installed automatically are not removed (Synaptic in Ubuntu is more intelligent, I wonder when Kubuntu will catch up here).

Recently, I learned about sudo apt-get autoremove and deborphan for cleaning up those packages that are no longer needed.
