I just updated it so it is more complete.

However, on Debian testing, I still get problems with Kile. (Texworks and
texmaker are OK.) More precisely, dblatex is causing problems. I recommend
installing kile with

aptitude install -o 'APT::Install-Rcommends=0' kile

which should work (please report if it doesn't), and then manually installing
the desired packages from the recommends list, excluding the package that are
causing problems, like dblatex.

I fail to understand why dblatex insists on installing all those packages. Oh,
wait, I just had an idea. The Depends: line of dblatex reads:

Depends: python, python-support (>= 0.90.0), docbook-xml, xsltproc |
python-4suite-xml, python-apt (>= 0.7.91), texlive (>= 2009),
texlive-bibtex-extra (>= 2009), texlive-latex-extra (>= 2009),
texlive-math-extra (>= 2009), texlive-extra-utils (>= 2009)

Could it be that the versions are the culprit? Like, the dummy package build
with equivs lacks version information, so dblatex is not satisfied with it?

A Debianer, please ? Norbert ?
