I am also using
aptitude purge ~c
which removes orphaned configurations by already deinstalled packages, and
aptitude purge `deborphan --guess-all`
which deinstalls all orphaned libs and packages. Here yo uhave to look, if
something unwanted is deinstalled, but in my experiences this very rare
happened. In that case, i.e, when a library is missing, I am just reinstall
this partiular one.
For uninstalling old kernels, I also like to use
aptitude purge ~n4.8.0-1-amd64-*
(the same is apt-get --purge remove 4.8.0-1-amd64-*
which installs all packages with 4.8.0-1-amd64 in its name. And as the version
no other package is using, it deinstalls just that kernel, headers and built
modules. Note: Take a look, before confirm!
