Still wishing to pursue the KDE theme, I installed kubuntu-desktop from Synaptic. I'm still waiting for the 225 packages to download and install.

If I'm sounding fiesty (pun intended) it is because installing software shouldn't be rocket science, even for new users. It's the job of the package manager to properly handle dependencies, not the user, not even the superuser. And having software repositories spread all over god's half-acre is a lousy way to distribute software. Give me pbidir.com or freshports.org anyday.
