 Hmm, you're not using browser mode.

Incidentally, the "hard way" someone mentioned before, is actually the easy
way when you're going through the lst of installed items in Synaptic and
adding them one by one. ;)

I'm gonna go try not using browser mode, but another difference is I have
Crossover office installed...that tries to edit the menu (I notice it
actually added the missing Debian menu to KDE. 

I'm gonna go play with this some more, but I recall trying it as non-root
before and it still didn't work.
