'cause when i try
#apt-get install kde
i get error messages saying that this or that packages (can check if
you find it useful) is not installable. That happened the first time
trying to install debtags-edit (and the uninstallable package was
libgtkmm-2.4-1 for what i remember, so it can be wrong), just a minute
before installing kde.
