I am on Ubuntu 11.10.

Like i pointed out above. On a fresh install I do:

'apt-get install nginx'

This install the necessary packages.

After that i do:

'apt-get remove nginx'

And it does not remove the other packages (nginx-full and -common)

I then try:

'apt-get autoremove'

And nothing happens. I fail to see how this is an issue with my system if
it's a fresh install of Ubuntu.
