I removed acme some days ago, together with gnome and
And I have pdbuttonsd, gtkpbbuttons again working here. 
All this with no problems so far for the rest of Gnome here, as it
seems. Except that I miss the pop-up images when pressing the Volume,
Brightness keys etc..

gnome-desktop-environment before removing them: IIRC, IIUC there are
situations where both could be needed.
