Dear Sebastian,

I just tried to "dkpg-reconfigure vlc" but it still refuses to run. I
tried to login again. I also reinstalled the removed packages libpau-...
but no effect.
Graphics like the cube effect when changing the active desktop was
disturbed pretty much. Many KDE stuff crashed, like krunner, kinit5, it
was in a state where I couldn't do much else then shutting down.
(Yesterday I had a similar effect - yesterday all possibilities of
opening a program and the desktop itself crashed but the cube effect
worked.) Then I reinstalled vlc and all the plugins with "apt-get
install --reinstall ..." but no effect even after doing dpkg-reconfigure

When I tried to remove or purge vlc it wants to remove quite essential
KDE stuff (see below). Maybe some dependencies are broken or rather
messed up?!

This reminds me to the fresh installed Debian. When I installed it two
weeks ago using the actual netinst iso and redirected sources.list to
testing the dist-upgrade uninstalled important stuff leading in a circle
of uninstalling it via autoremove and installing it again via
dist-upgrade while marking it as auto-removable. I was able to find out
it did not install (or uninstalled during the dist-upgrade - I don't
know) the task-kde-desktop. It only installed (or left) the german
localized kde tasks.

I don't know at some point my whole installation seems to be fucked up
but every time I reinstalled since I have this computer I had to start
the odyssee again.

Thanks Maria
