Keyboard in Trinity and K*-trinity applications in LXDE

I am running:
Trinity 3.5.13 updated with Slavek's patches
LXDE installed and used when essential
I have just run aptitude update.  There were no upgrades.  There were
2 yesterday.

My keyboard has disappeared in Trinity.  There is obviously nothing
wrong with the keyboard(s), both PS2 and USB, both of which I have
tried, or the connection to the motherboard, since keyboards work in
the BIOS, gdm and LXDE.

This situation is made worse for me by the fact that k*-trinity
applications, with the exception of Konqueror, will not run in LXDE.
There is no KWrite, and I do not find Nano a long term acceptable
substitute, and I can run neither KMail nor Amarok.  Not only are
these applications not in the menu, they will not run in the console,
with error message "command not found".

What have I done to upset Trinity??  And how do I persuade it to
function for me again??  There is obviously a problem with my imported
 home.  Other people for whom I have installed Trinity, but who had
little or no previous data, have ridden off into the sunset.  But what
problem, where?
