You may also want to check on Slack's changelogs.  Patrick explained
his reasoning about dropping Gnome there -- something I'll agree with.
 If getting Gnome working right is a full time job onto itself, better
drop it.  Besides, KDE just works out of the box.  What a shame how
bad Gnome 2.x became over 1.x.  What a waste of a good toolkit.
