Travelling done.  Now for the jet lag...

In sources.list I updated all the repository (except for Trinity)
versions to saucy.  This fixed the broken packages problem, and I
installed many key Trinity pkgs.  But maybe not enough or not the
right ones.  I (foolishly) chose kdm-trinity as the desktop on next
login - and haven't been able to boot into Linux since.

Now I want to reset the desktop default to Lubuntu LXDE and get back
in to install things properly.  Some questions:
1 - how to access the HDD from a live session running off a USB?
1a - changing the desktop default - I think it's in .xinitrc or a related file?
2 - in some detail, what needs installing to make sure the next
startup will work and display the Trinity desktop?

Thanks again - Robert
