I guess, my problem is caused by the fact that I use dpkg to investigate
dependencies and to install packages and not apt-get (I must admit, that
I positioned it low priority on my installing list. Since setting it up
didn't work right from the beginning, I skipped it for later
experiments. I was too impatient and more interested in X11.). The
dpkg-infos don't tell you the other names. I had as well trouble to find
fvwm2 at first.

Well, thanks to everybody to answer that question again, although it
showed up already several times.
