That's fine.  You're building the hearts game from scratch IIRC because
it isn't a Debian package. You may need qt development libraries / other
KDE dev type "stuff" and build-essential can't hurt (the meta package
that pulls in the basics for package development and compilation etc.)

It may not be an issue any more - but watch out for sound problems.
Historically, the two desktops have tended to fight over sound
resources: if your sound suddenly stops working altogether, it's
probably two competing sound deamons :)
