You know when you are going to install Trident, you know how it gives you a bunch of programs you want to install, by default it did have nVidia -> Latest graphics drivers selected. My Graphics card is nVidia GTX 260. Does this have to do with any broken graphical issues?
When I boot into Trident, and I logged in this is what I see.
I did run
rc-status and pcdm does appear to have started
startx and this is what I see.
And when I press Control-C to end the program this is what I see.
