It's not in Debian (yet) but mepis has it, works here on Squeeze. http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/testrepo/pool/test/c/ceni/ceni_2.10-0mlrepo1_all.deb Well done for purging kde4! Don't forget the Debian bizcard install method, you get just the base then install the rest manually. You can use smxi for most of it. Cuts the bloat and the gnome/kde4.
