Now, then, it's been 45+ years since I was *chronologically* a 
four-year-old, however ...  :-)

KDE4 is really quite sad.  I was willing to accept the eye candy but even 
then, it doesn't work right.  If you put a panel at the top of a screen it 
should be there after you go home at night and then come in the next day. 
Nope.  All panels stuffed into one screen.  And I didn't even logout, just 
locked the screen.

So.  At Slávek's suggestion, I installed all the TDE packages from his 
repo.  Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to get the last few packages 
to install.  I keep getting stuck here:

sudo apt-get -f install

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
   crystalcursors tdmtheme-trinity
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following extra packages will be installed:
   ksmserver-trinity
Recommended packages:
   tde-ubuntu-integration
The following NEW packages will be installed:
   ksmserver-trinity

I did the autoremove as apt-get suggested, which gives me:

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

And of course '-f' gives me the same.  Do I need to remove some of the KDE4 
packages?  If so, which ones?
