    GTK Orphan wants to remove plenty of useful packages

    Hi, all.

    I think this was the first time I used GTKOrphan since I upgraded to Lucid. Under the options tab, when I check "Show all orphan packages, not only those in the libs section", a large number of packages show up as being orphaned. Some of them (such as feisty-wallpapers) I know I can safely remove, others are metapackages (e.g. linux-generic, kubuntu-desktop), which I'm unsure about removing, and others are packages I use regularly, such as inkscape, gfortran, linux-image-2.6.32-21-generic.

    I was wondering if this is a bug in GTKorphan, or if I'm doing something wrong.

    Thanks.

    i'm used with gtkorphan and happy with it: it remove old releases and "orphan", never had issue with this

    use the first tab, select "all" instead of "none" at the bottom
