michael_demoniothe url i pasted is https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ClassroomTranscripts06:35
jribok, that's not what I mean06:40

ubotupastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the #ubuntu channel topic)06:40
jribyou have your browser open to http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org?06:40
jribnow in the Text section you have copied what is in your ~/.xsession-errors file and pasted it?06:41
jribnow, press the Submit button06:41
michael_demonioin name i put michael_demonio06:41

jribdo this command: mv ~demonio/.gnome2{,.backup}; mv ~demonio/.gconfd{,.backup}; mv ~demonio/.gconf{,.backup}06:48
jribyou're settings will go away, but they are in the *.backup directories if you need something06:49
jribif it still doesn't work, it may be easier for you to create a new user and then copy the videos and documents from the old user to the new user.  Or, ask in #ubuntu for more help06:50
jribgood luck, any questions before I go?06:50
