Thank you to whoever got Gnome desktop running

I found some issues meanwhile.

It appears to me that Evolution needs some additional setup to work:

% cat ~/.config/plasma-workspace/env/desktop-initialisierung.sh

# Pulseaudio
/usr/bin/pulseaudio -D &

# Evolution, see /usr/lib/systemd/user/evolution-*.service
/usr/lib/evolution/evolution-addressbook-factory &
/usr/lib/evolution/evolution-calendar-factory &
/usr/lib/evolution/evolution-source-registry &
/usr/lib/evolution/evolution-user-prompter &

Those service files are in package evolution-data-server.

(I do not yet know whether this fully works, manually starting those did
work. However address auto completion in Evolution seems to be not
working, no idea what might be missing there.)

I wonder where to report those. Thing is:

While I think it would be good to have this fixed in Debian packages, my
bet is that their maintainers would be less than willing to accept other
means of starting those. I bet it would be more easy to convince them
when we can show that we have a working solution.

I wonder how one would look like, cause as far as I am aware GNOME just
relies on Systemd for starting services. There might be more GNOME
services not running… however as I do not use GNOME, I probably would
not notice it. Plasma still uses 'kdeinit' for that purpose, also
because they officially support FreeBSD as far as I am aware.

For now I am more inclined to report things like that to Devuan
bugtracker. What do you think?

And well… I found Polkit authentication failing while trying to adapt
KWalletManager settings, but from what I understand this is a know
