thanks for the reply.
I have not used twm since 1994. It looked worse as far as I can remember.
Only accessible (menu) via left mouse click on desktop. No panels, start
buttons or whatsoever. Some entries in the menu were empty.
Anyhow. Re-installed with Gnome. Its is a system with a 4 Gig SSD 'hard
disk'. So, before installing kde, I had to remove a lot of apps to make
space for Kde downloads. After that, instructed apt to remove gnome and
install kde in one go.
Now finally I have Kde back, but I have a slight feeling that's not the
standard way to install Debian-Kde ;-).
