Tried. No work.

bob at deb: ~$ ls -l /usr/bin/X11/XFree86
No such file or directory.

Noticed at the end of

# apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xfree86
xfree86-common: Depends x11common but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or
specify a solution)

Should I try install wdm or xdm? No love lost between me and Gnome.
Actually, I like Blackbox. Can I launch them (wdm or xdm) from the
console? After install will they be placed in the same directory as
gdm? /etc/X11 ?
