Then just install everything in recommends (which is actually the
default unless you disabled the installation of recommends, which is
your problem then) and be happy. You'll end up with some megabytes of
libgraries, nothing that will do any harm unless you are out of diskspace.

Again, recommends are installed by default. If one of the plugins in the
package does not work for you out of the box (and you have the
recommended packages installed), file a bug.
