Hi Jonas.

That's a bit odd. I did have xine installed, but not Kaffeine. I havn't 
updated Intrepid since 20081113, so Installed Kaffeine with an apt-get 
install kaffeine. then did an apt-get update, followed by apt-get 
dist-upgrade. Said NO to the upgrade, as there are 212MB of packages waiting 
to be updated (will do that overnight on dialup). There's no mention of the 
Kaffeine I've just installed being removed though, due to the waiting 

154 upgraded, 4 newly installed (kernel, kernel headers, etc), 0 to remove, 0 
not upgraded.

At the moment /usr/bin/kaffeine exists

There is a whole bunch of KDE packages that are waiting to be updated, and I 
have seen an update to kde-libs resulting in a package being removed for some 
reason or other.

I'll post back tomorrow sometime, after the apt-get dist-upgrade has run to 
completion, and check if /usr/bin/kaffeine still exists. I save all the 
history from updates, so if anyone wants to view it, I'll post it to the 

If this is a problem with kdelibs, and kaffeine, hopefully it will be resolved
