I dread installing QGIS because this additionally always installs QT Assistant, QT Designer, QT Linguist. Any reason behind it?

I don't use any plugins but sudo apt install qgis forces to install mentioned QT programs.

  • because you need them to develop plugins - is there a downside to installing them?
