my apologies, I won't be able to try again with gdm3 in particular for
some time now.
However, the picture clearly is more complicated. Right now, I have
lightdm session without lightdm's at-spi running anymore and since I do
not have gnome-orca and its dependencies installed, clearly qt apps
shouldn't be able to start - but they do. On the other hand, I'm pretty
sure around the time I uninstalled gnome-orca, konsole starts got
problematic even in gdm3 session I had before... I'm stumped. Maybe
I'm just confused and fixing lightdm is good enough.
