Ideally, Synaptic should have a Menu option "install all matching -dbg packages" which will get all -dbg packages for currently installed packages. I seem to remember that at one point one Linux system I worked on had both that and "install all matching -dev packages" as well. Might have been an older Ubuntu, or an older SuSE Linux. My memory is a bit hazy on this.

Ideally such an option should stay on and automatically install and remove -dbg packages for all future package installations and removals.

Currently I'm clicking my way through the -dbg packages one by one, and installing everything that doesn't want to bring in any new non-dbg packages. Not very comfortable to say the least.
