Standard is too bloated, wants to install 64 more packages, including kmail, 
dragonplayer, kopete, kaddressbook, korganizer, kmix & knotes. Plasma-desktop 
--no-install-recommends or not held to 4: pd, kdebase-apps, kdepasswd, 
kwrite. I proceeded with PD, but still can't get past a mousepointer on a 
blue background. .xsession-errors remains 32k:

After, no-install-recommends kde-standard still wanted to add 42, still 
including kmail, kaddressbook, kopete, dragonplayer, korganizer. I proceeded, 
and still can't get past a mousepointer on a blue background. 
.xsession-errors is down to just under 20k
