Regarding my question about Gnome dependencies some days ago, further
research shows that current Karmic/Lucid packaging has Gnome
- in Ubuntu package dependencies list, those libs are there
libpanel-applet2-0 (>= 2.26.0)
library for GNOME Panel applets
libpanelappletmm-2.6-1c2 (>= 2.22.0)
C++ wrappers for libpanel-applet (shared library)
Also see this Debian Debian Bug report logs - #566670
gnote: Please ship the Gnome panel plugin in a separate binary package
