I'm having a "me too" moment here right now.  Mint is tying me up on 
knots and is having all sorts of dependency grief (it's like the early 
days of "Mandrake"!!!)

The workspace development machine has just been reformatted and has been 
put back to Debian, though with a Kubuntu option (that I'm writing this 
in) for day-to-day use.

Now - back to work........
