I suspect this has something to do with nvidia driver.  If one changes the 
fonts to bitstream then anti-aliasing does work (but not with the default

Should I file a PR for this, considering there probably isn't enough man-power 
to actually resolve it?

Please ignore.  It appears ksudo or kdesudo is a Kubuntu specific program (why 
haven't they pushed the changes upstream?)

One the correct place in  the code is found, yes it is. See attached.  Patch 
does compile cleanly and samba config module does not find smb.conf.  
Makefile should probably be extended to change the lookup patch if 
${LOCALBASE} isn't /usr/local?  If so just

# sed -e "s|/usr/local/etc/smb.conf|${LOCALBASE}/etc/smb.conf|' 

I have also filed a PR (bug #183006) with an improved patch.

I already have :-).  I had a problem with downloading the patch... But once 
that was done amarok2 installed fine :-)

The only app now that is really missing is k3b.  Grrr... :-(
