That's unfortunate, because it means there is no longer a full-featured QT-based
DM in standard Debian repos. Latest Fedora and openSUSE still provide it, even
though upstream long ago discontinued it in favor of an incomplete feature set
that isn't even part of the KDE project.

The drop escaped my notice because Trinity provides the only DE & DM I depend on
in Debian. My use of KDE in Debian is limited primarily to selected apps, e.g.
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
