Good suggestion.  Oddly enough, in synaptic there are a few basic
packages that show as *installed* , but using the CLI with apt-get -s
install, the response says *will install...* and lists the same packages
(not sure why - maybe because of the -s arg), and a lot of additional
packages that I would have thought were installed with the original
installation.  Maybe a default kubuntu install doesn't actually install
a complete Oo.
