I'm working on a Debian based distro too and there is no problem at all. Also 
KDE runs out of the box without problem. It may not be the best solution if 
you are short with memory but for me (I'm used to it) it does the job very 
well on an 1200 MHz ITX box. Recording of 10 tracks at the same time at 44000 
Hz without problems.

I don't think it's a problem with Ardour; if you log into the system  in KDM 
login manager you are able to choose the deskop environmenty, KDE, Gnome, ...
Maybe there is by defaul choosen the wrong system for you? If you don't launch 
Ardour in a session and log yourself out and in again, do you get KDE or 
Gnome in he next session?

And like Esben told you in his oher mail, you have to be a bit more specific 
in your description.


FYI:.: The characer 't' isn't working well on my keyboard - in case I have 
overseen strange words above
