(SOLVED) [Jessie] System keeping - how to undo package break of xfce4

Hi

I made a mistake trying to make my OS smaller. So I removed a few packages from the dependencies of meta package xfce4. But now I am getting this dependency issue, even though I reinstalled the earlier removed packages:

Calculating upgrade... The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  hddtemp libxfcegui4-4 ristretto xfce4-artwork xfce4-battery-plugin
  xfce4-clipman xfce4-clipman-plugin xfce4-cpufreq-plugin
  xfce4-cpugraph-plugin xfce4-datetime-plugin xfce4-dict xfce4-diskperf-plugin
  xfce4-fsguard-plugin xfce4-genmon-plugin xfce4-mailwatch-plugin
  xfce4-mount-plugin xfce4-netload-plugin xfce4-notes xfce4-notes-plugin
  xfce4-places-plugin xfce4-quicklauncher-plugin xfce4-screenshooter
  xfce4-sensors-plugin xfce4-smartbookmark-plugin xfce4-systemload-plugin
  xfce4-taskmanager xfce4-timer-plugin xfce4-verve-plugin xfce4-wavelan-plugin
  xfce4-weather-plugin xfce4-xkb-plugin
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

But I want to keep these packages. ... Kindly guide.

Thankyou.

1.  Reinstall the meta package and you 'should' get everything back.

2.  Reinstall xfce without the meta package and just add the pkgs you want.

apt-get install hddtemp libxfcegui4-4 ristretto xfce4-artwork xfce4-battery-plugin...

and any other packages from the autoremoval list that you want to keep. They will then be marked as manually installed.
