Yeah, its one of those guys, with a question that most people here can
answer easily, and so probably don't want to. But in this life you don't ask
you don't get so I may as well try.
If I want to build KDE myself, I can get the tar'd dist, which comes in
packages which are inkeeping with what the install FAQ tells you. If I want
to use debian packages, I have a lot more packages to contend with, there is
no kdesupport, and not all the components of kdesupport are there either,
they're not all on the debian dists etc. So thinking I was clever I tried to
mix and match and install kdesupport myself, since it was basically just
some libs, which naturally failed to even configure. Could someone tell me
the *real* installation instructions for kde for debian or at least where
the missing packages are (libsslsomething for example).
Normally by now i'd have accepted defeat and got the tars, but since I know
already that the first package I want to install won't anyway, I may as well
keep trying this way.
Please help me, i'm not a complete novice, i just got sick of looking at
