Re: squeeze, kde4 and plasma-desktop


it is a good question wether or not plasma needs to be installed or not.The 
problem of Plasma is thats its  _the_ KDE Desktop Shell. Thus you could (for 
example) use Fluxbox with KWin as a Window manager. But you will miss out on 
most of its integration that makes KDE as a hole that good. 

A possible workaround might be doing a "kde-micro" package and have in 
there core apps such as Dolphin,KMail, KWin,DragonPlayer,Konsole etc. but 
keep Plasma Workspace and the Plasma Shell out of it. 
Is that possible from a packaging point of view in any way?
