- For my Firefox/Iceweasel woes:mozilla.debian.net
- Getting LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice: Installing LibreOffice in Debian Squeeze from Backports without a hitch
Staying on Squeeze, I can run Compiz, run VueScan, the themes are not messed up, etc....
Remaining problem: the internationalization applet... I'll work around that. Interestingly that's called gnome-language-selector, so you'd expect it to be part of Gnome.
