Yes you can: in Synaptic (menu System/Administration), go to menu
Settings, open Preferences, then go to the tab "Files". Choose option
"Delete downloaded packages after installation" , or "Only delete
packages which are no longer available"  . You can also click the
button "Delete Cached Package Files" to delete immediately.
 This is equivalent to the command line command "sudo aptitude clean"
 This will only delete packages that are not in the repository
anymore. It is equivalent to "sudo aptitude autoclean"
