Re: Trying to install wine32 results in deleting all gnome and xfce

Did you consult any instructions before launching into the install? I had wine installed on jessie but my system was 32 bit so much easier. I have not installed wine on 64 bit chimaera for reasons like you are describing but have discussed the process with those more in the know than I am.  The takeaway for me was that wine requires 32 bit libraries alongside the 64 bit libraries and everything has to be done in a particular order. Some finger crossing is also probably a good idea . . . big_smile

Re: Trying to install wine32 results in deleting all gnome and xfce

I would clean-up drastically, and then reinstall the stuff (again).
Purge gnome, install a simple DM.

apt install slim task-gnome-desktop-  --purge --auto-remove   ## there is a "-" after desktop 

Does the remaining xfce work?
if not purge it too, which should leave just the text console.

apt purge task-xfce-desktop slim --auto-remove

Be careful:
apt with option "-s" additionally runs a simulation.
Take care of the network, if you are using something else than dhcp.
"purge" will delete the (system-)config files too, when removing.

Edit: typo

If you can't log in to the GUI try ctrl-alt-f1 (press all 3 keys at once, in that order) which should get you to a text console where you can log on and try to fix things.

Next time you try to install something *always* do a simulation run first and check what it says it's going to do.

I only got login loops when the hard disk was full. I'd suggest

df -h

I have plenty of space, only gdm3 doesn't work. I reinstalled slim, then logged in succesfully. Tried gdm3 again, still can't login. Something wrong with GDM3. Slim works even with gnome.
