I so needed... a good laugh. That did it........

Is there a package that you could try reinstalling to see if it puts
something back in place? I use "apt-get install --reinstall" for
accomplishing that task..

One caveat I've discovered is that it only specifically reinstalls any
given singularly named package. Any dependencies aren't touched in
that reinstall. That would be one reason why reinstalling doesn't
always fix things. It might be about the dependencies being the
ultimate cause of some problem or anther at hand..

I figured out a fairly easy work-around recently regarding
additionally reinstalling dependencies with minimal brain strain
finding them, but unfortunately just this second I can't remember what
that work-around was...
