'giving up' is relative. It is still running (I am posting from it), it's 
just hard to shoehorn it into doing what I need. Basically nothing is 
broken, but kde is deinstalled (it depended on the library I forced in).

On Slack if you need 5 versions of a library you install them and they 
coexist. I still have a 1.2.13 system running and I know this. There is no 
similar system on Debian ?
