The question I am going to ask is not very specific to Synaptic, but if it 
cannot be answered only by using apt-get on the command line then it would be 
a very good candidate feature for Synaptic...

Is there a _simple_ way to, say, upgrade all one's KDE package to a new 
version? « apt-get install kde » is not a satisfying answer : there are some 
KDE packages I am not interrested in so I do not want to install the whole 
thing all the time : I only want to upgrade all _already installed_ KDE 
packages in one operation.

I've tried « apt-get upgrade kde », but it has the same meaning to apt as 
« apt-get upgrade ». 

I also tried a filter like this : 
 - View / New filter
 - Press the "New" button at the bottom of the dialog and then rename the 
filter "KDE Update"
 - In the "Rule" / "Status" tab, in the "Current" section, uncheck all but 
"Installed and upgradable"
 - In the "Properties" tab, click the "New" button. Then set the property to 
"Dependencies Includes kde"
 - Press OK.
 - Switch to that filter by selecting the "KDE Update" filter in the main 

That works well, but I always forget about this feature, and in fact, I 
remembered it while writing this email. 

Should't be an easier way? Any suggestions? Any other users thinking like me 
that Something is missing there?
