I'm not following you. For example: openoffice.org-help-en-us (as were
all of the above) was originally installed via Synaptic. Therefore one
would _assume_ that they would have been installed properly to begin with.
I find no aptitude gui (well other than the x/terminal window DOS type
standard 'aptitude', is there some other?
How does tasksel come into play? - you've completely lost me on that one.
