I got a new Thinkpad T430 but had all sorts of hardware/driver issues with Debian Squeeze since it's outdated. Major issues - wireless wasn't working after numerous attempts, yadayada.
So I upgraded to Wheezy RC1 and most of those issues were solved. I've had some issues like random freezes but nothing that prevented me from working..until today.
Yesterday I downloaded some JRE packages and today upon heading to work the Wireless wasn't able to connect to the network at work.. my old thinkpad was able to perfectly. After restarting, I get: "Bug Report?: “Oh No! Something Has Gone Wrong.”" after logging in and selecting Gnome/Gnome Classic and it asks me to login again, and this becomes an endless loop.
I can access other ttys in console mode. I can create a new user and login to Gnome, but how can I solve this for my primary user?
Here is xsession-errors.
Also, I had display issues and wasn't ever able to legitimately install drivers through nVidia - I believe I need to do this, but I've never had issues logging in even without doing that.
Would appreciate any help.
Edit: upon using another username all day i logged in as my original and when trying to 'filezilla&' it gives me:
Unable to initialize gtk, is DISPLAY set properly?
So this is the root of my issue, as I predicted.
