Dependencies for install seem excessive

Bug #491328 reported by Chris Puttick on 2009-12-02

Bug Description

Clean install of Kubuntu 9.10.

sudo apt-get install blueman

61 new packages to install, 63.8MB of archives to download.

Are those dependencies all real? I understand needing the gtk bits because of the GUI choice, but that can't be all GUI related?

Could you dump the list here? I'll look it through.

I needed to install libgtk2.0-bin package separately, because it's not in dependencies and without it postinstall doesn't work:

Yes, especially the fact that a lot of gnome stuff is needed for blueman/blueman-applet is unfortunate. Any way to get rid of it easily?
