I'm running LMDE tracking latest. Like a fool I thought the other day, "I think I'll try KDE out." Well, I installed kde-full, and after much work got sound back to working and decent looking gtk apps in KDE (hint: lxappearance and gtk-oxygen packages are your friend...or names similar to those). But now I'm struggling with a different problem.
I got a message from the update manager today that I need to update a few packages: libxine1-bin, libxine1-consol, libxine1-ffmpeg, libxine1-x. However, when I go to update this xine stuff it says it will remove dragonplayer, kde-full, kde-standard, and kdemultimedia. Looking at dragonplayer it seems like it's a video player (duh) but it's a Qt front-end wrapped around xine? So I'm guessing what's going on is that it depends on a different version of xine than this update will provide, and since it's a dependency of kde-full, kde-standard, kde-multimedia those will be removed as well. Any ideas on what I should do? Is that bug report worthy? Am I absolutely nuts to use KDE with LMDE?
I like gnome and hated early versions of KDE 4, but I hear they worked out a lot of the kinks. I was hoping to avoid the whole gnome 2/3 transition mess, as well as the lack of features for early versions of gnome 3. But maybe going to KDE under LMDE is just asking for it.
