Looks good. However, I have a kde so I really cannot install binaries off 

I was unable to get sources from kde (svn), so I took debian's sources. I 
installed a bunch of other packages to support it then make did nothing. Went 
into the adept subdirectory and its Makefile does try to compile, finding a 
bunch of missing headers in the 30-40 meg worth of installed goodies so still 
no adept.

Well, the synaptic installation is a bit easier so will try that. Many
