For apt-get '--no-install-recommends' can help you a bit. See man 8 apt-get.

I prefer the gui-like interface to aptitude (started with "aptitude"),
where I can review and alter the proposed package selection. In your
case you would get a list of packages that aptitude will want to install
(all that are recommended by the packages you select) and you can
manually select which ones you want.


(The keybindings are unintuitive for me, so I recommend opening the help
by typing a "?", and having some patience in the beginning. The workflow
is to find the packages you want, mark them for installation with "+",
preview actions with "g", alter the actions by unmarking packages with
"-", and then confirming with "g" again.)


Hope it helps

Johan

Thank you all.
I choosed a gui approach in aptitude (deselecting unwanted docs packages manually).
