If this dependency is to be broken - Which I hope it is! I have found
another little problem you will need to deal with at that time. The
'xpdf' launcher icon is one which resides in kdebase:


and thus if the 'desktop-printing' dependency is broken and 'kdebase'
not installed, you will not get a launcher icon with xpdf under Gnome.
