"Oh, Bother!" said Pooh
"I'll go get the 18.04 iso" said Piglet
"I knew something like this would happen" said Eeyore...

In synaptic, using the "Origin" button, I looked at the programs that 
were installed from the kxstudio repos... and I didn't *think* there 
would be any way to remove them... so, yeah, I'll have to reinstall...

So that no one *else* has to go through all this... It would be useful 
if you could edit/rearrange/combine the following three blocks you wrote 
and put that on the official pages about the backports...

i.e. If you are using the kxstudio repos, DO NOT add the backports.
reinstall 18.04 (with out the kxstudio repos) and *then* add the 
backports.  for these reasons [edited stuff].

Thanks for your help and guidance in all this...
