Debian - Trinity Desktop


I have just inatalled the trinity desktop but when logging in all I have is the gnome terminal, nothing else. When I close the terminal it logs me off. Im guessing ive broken it, but I have no idea how to fix it.

Any help would be appreciated.

On the terminal try type:

startx <then press Enter>
An X window environment should open up.
