Gnumeric installs Gnome

Hello,

The simple command : apt-get install gnumeric will result in  a  lot of packages, which actually is part of gnome (evince,... and "millions" things).

The deb dependencies are therefore faulty.

Would it be some concern from Devuan about such issue(s)?

thank you

Re: Gnumeric installs Gnome

I checked this with...

apt-get install gnumeric ...vs... apt-get install gnumeric --no-install-recommends

Here are my results (please note: I didn't install it either way, so I don't know if its functionality was affected)

With apt-get install gnumeric...

I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Re: Gnumeric installs Gnome

You can pass the simulate option in such cases where you do not want apt-get to actually carry out the actions, but just show what would happen if it did:

# apt-get -s --no-install-recommends install gnumeric

Re: Gnumeric installs Gnome

that is why I switched to "APT::Install-Recommends "false";" a long time ago...
