Thanks Thomas for your response. I am worried about this because in sarge I
used to use icewm and there I installed gdeskcal without these huge...
dependency. but in lenny gdeskcal is asking for entire gnome plus nautilus,
sudo etc.... which is really not required for gdeskcal !!!
That's why I am confused about apt in lenny
