Yeah, you want to reinstall all that stuff, unless you don't really need some 
of it. (I have found speedcrunch to be a problem on my system, for example, 
but now I forget why.) It doesn't seem to have uninstalled 
desktop-core-trinity, but I do recognize a lot of those items as oft-used, if 
not strictly essential packages. 

There ought to be a workaround to get qt5 dependencies installed; if not, put 
in a request for Slavek or whoever to create them. I requested some packages 
(tork-trinity and kshowmail-trinity) a few years ago, and they were created 
in a few days, and have worked great ever since. 

Also, I would like to switch to ProtonMail or something similar, but have had 
problems registering for an account. As I recall, it kept rejecting my 
connection; also, I can't remember if they offer free accounts, or only paid 
accounts. So I am interested to hear your progress in getting ProtonMail to 
work with something like Kmail or Claws.
