I recently bought a new laptop and immediately wiped out Windows and installed Ubuntu Koala 64 bit version. I've noticed on the most recent list of updates that Update manager is recommending, under a category labelled 'Backports', that I update a bunch of apparently KDE-related packages, though I use Gnome.
The packages are:
kde-icons-oxygenWhat's with this? Am I using KDE and don't even know it (this seems unlikely)? Are these actually not KDE-specific, despite the naming? If these should not be inthe update list, how are they getting there? And how do I get rid of them? I don't see anything in my repositories list that might be requesting them.
