Remove forgotten packages. If you have popularity-contest installed, you
can use popcon-largest-unused to list the packages you do not use that
occupy the most space. You can also use deborphan or debfoster to find
obsolete packages (see Section 4.11, “Obsolete packages” ). Alternatively
you can start aptitude in “visual mode” and find obsolete packages under
“Obsolete and Locally Created Packages”.
