apt-get -s install kde returns:

Reading state information... Done
Package kde is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source


E: Package 'kde' has no installation candidate


It returns the same message for a number of kde apps.
I'm not sure what has happened really.

There is no "kde" package.
Try kde-plasma-desktop, kde-standard, or kde-full, depending on how many extra programs you want included. There is also kde-plasma-netbook for small screens.
lxde looks installable.

Code: [Select]
$ apt-cache policy kde kwin
kde:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: (none)
  Version table:
kwin:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: (none)
  Version table:
I'm not sure how to get kwin by itself, though I've heard of it being used with other DEs. The gurus here may know. :)

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:


The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 kde-window-manager : Depends: libxcb-sync0 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

su
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

Disable all repos but siduction and do

Code: [Select]
apt-get clean

init 3 && apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

Those other repo's probably screwed your system beyond repairable (with the exception of deb-multimedia)
