Ok, then there is something wrong in your ~/.trinity - and I expect it's not that easy to correct by hand. The easiest fix is probably this: - log out of TDE - go to a console <ctrl>+<alt>+<f1> - log in as "gene" or what ever user you use - $ mv .trinity .trinity-old - back to X11 - log in - wizard comes up, just walk through it - test session, which I expect to work. - no copy the configs you need from the .trinity-old to .trinity, at least mails. I know, that's anoying, but it sometimes happens. Maybe silent bitrotting, who knows? Nik -- Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA.
