Need some help with Trinity under Debian Squeeze

Hi guys,

following yesterdays discussion I installed Debian Squeeze with Trinity. I encountered some 
problems I am unable to resolve.

1. At first Trinity worked OK. I installed some additional packages I will be needing. Then I 
realized that I didn't format my /home partition used previousle by KDE4. Since I wanted a clean 
install I logged out and removed all files in ~. Now I can't log into Trinity - when I try to do 
that all I get is a blue background and I have to power off my laptop (can't even reset X with 
Ctrl+Alt+Backspace). In ~/.xsession-errors I see something like this:

[startkde] kdeinit started successfully.
[trinity kinit] Warrning: connect() failed: Connection refused
kdeinit: Pipe closed unexpectedly: No such file or directoy
kdeinit: Launched DCOPServier, pid = 2778 result = 1
kdeinit: DCOPServer could not be started, aborting.
QSettings::synx: failed to open '/etc/qt3/qt_plugins_3.3rc.tmp' for writing
KCrash: crashing.. crashRecursionCounter = 2
KCrash: Application Name = ksmserver path = <unknown> pid = 2774
[trinity kinit] Warrning: connect() failed: Połączenie odrzucone
KCrash cannot reach kdeinit, launching directly.
ERROR: Couldn't attach to DCOP server!
[startkde] Shutting down Trinity...
[trinity kinit] Warrning: connect() failed: Connection refused
[trinity kinit] Error: Can't contact kdeinit!
[startkde] Running Trinity shutdown scripts...
[startkde] Trinity shutdown complete

I don't think this is caused by cleaning up home directory, I suspect some packages to be causing 
this. Perhaps something related to Qt?

2. Assuming I will be able to run TDE again, I am unable to get NetworkManager to work. I use 
nm-applet. I can add the wireless connection, but I am unable to store password (the field is 
always empty, despite me saving the password). Moreover, nm-applet doesn't list any wirelesss 
networks and when I choose to connect to hidden network and select my connection the "Connect" 
button is grayed out.

I need your help guys. Seriously.

Jan
