You removed some trinity related desktop metapackage (from this list i
think if was one of the redmond-default packages). You should either
reinstall that metapackage or check this list carefully and mark anything
you actually need as manually installed. Nothing in this list is
system-critical, its mostly multimedia and weird languages input/display
stuff, but you probably want to keep some of this (notice there is lftp,
screen, rdesktop, rdiff-backup and bluez on this list)
