As if you're not required to install those on linux. If I'd install
filelight on a system that has only X11 installed, then the package list
to install would be comparable.

If you want that, I suggest to drop Qt, KDE and anything else you're
using and use the native OS API directly. Then you have a minimal set of
dependencies (oh and of course that means text ui on linux)
