It was suggested in a previous thread that I use the text installer because the graphical installer kept crashing. The text installer did not crash, but when the installation was complete and I rebooted it appeared to have installed kubuntu instead of Trisquel, so apparently I did something horribly wrong within the text installer. Does anyone have any ideas as to what's going on?

Happened to me once ...it's when you whent for Install : Trisquel Desktop Environnement

Update your system via Synaptic Package Manager, or via the terminal
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

After you can install any other Desktop you wish
Xfce, LXDE, Trisquel mini, Gnome, JWM, ect ...you can also remove KDE ( Triskel KDE) once you have installed your another desktop (+ make sure you have Trisquel-base-recommended & Trisquel-common-recommended packages installed)

You should be pretty fine with that ;-)

Thank you! So it's because I selected "Triskel desktop environment?" Would selecting "Trisquel desktop environment" have given me what I was using when I tried out Trisquel from a USB drive before deciding to install? Will installing GNOME and removing KDE give me exactly the same result as if I were to start over and select the correct option?

Maybe you installed 'triskel desktop' instead of 'trisquel desktop'. You can select the right desktop via tasksel.

$ sudo tasksel

I deselected "triskel," selected "trisquel," ran, and restarted my computer. The login screen was different, but after logging in everything else is still kubuntu/KDE Plasma. Is there another step? Thanks.

At the login screen, isn't there a way to select another session? An icon after you select or type your user name maybe?

Fixed. Thanks everyone for your help!

I'm now having another issue with detection of my wifi adapter. Since it's unrelated to my initial problem I'm starting a new thread. If 1 topic/thread isn't protocol for this forum let me know and I'll stop doing it.

Please explain how the problem was "fixed": somebody else could profit from your experience.

I ended up reinstalling entirely and selecting "trisquel" instead of "triskel." I'm sure that the other suggestions would have been more time efficient, but being new to GNU/Linux I felt more comfortable repeating a process I had already learned.

That's fine mason ;-)

I agree Triskel or Trisquel is confusing for "anyone" not familiar with Trisquel packages( and not just GNU/Linux)..

The best way to know more is with your Synaptic package manager,

Have fun & enjoy Tris"quel".
