Hahaha, if I did that I'd be reading them to the exclusion of all
else! :^) Debian has a _lot_ of packages, and I usually run Sid.

Ah, but if I had done that, I would have been looking at the page for
DBUS. Oh well, water under the bridge. Lots of thanks to the people
who said "powersave group". Now I'll know to look at groups as
a "usual suspect" early in diagnostics.

Ah, but only if one uses tasksel. For every other procedure, it seems,
it's an "upgrade", which as you point out....

If tasksel had "KDE desktop" during the initial setup, I wouldn't have
a 1000+ package "upgrade" to hammer out in dselect afterwords.
But such is life. If it were easy, any MCSE could do it.
"Check group before permissions". Got it. And a big Thank You.
