Restart and you may need to tweak a few things...
Sorry, I wish I had seen you had resolved it sooner...
Just saw it on the logout! Wow that was quick. Saw the check-box, saw that it was checked to save the session, muscle-memory took over and made me click on logout. "FACEPALM"
I'm back in and everything seems to be back to normal however.
Looks like once again, you've saved the day! Thanks for the help, it is appreciated greatly! Like I said, now to get Bumblebee to play nice. Gotta figure out some stuff about my display. Also have to evidently manually configure xorg.conf... We'll see how it all goes.
I have used your guide to install sid, but I am not sure it was a good idea to add experimental to the sources.list. I has resulted in a bloody mess on my pc. Whenever I want to install a program, I can only do it, if I pull half of the dependencies from experimental, and some programs will not install at all, spacefm for instance..
I am considering downgrading everything to sid, because this is not good.
Huh? Did you set preferences separately? By default, experimental gets an apt pin value of 1, meaning nothing will be pulled from there unless you explicitly make it so.
It works now. The library at fault was libglib2.0-0, which was pulled from experimental, but gtk needs the version from sid, otherwise I could only install gtk apps from experimental.
edit: ...and glib-networking was also pulled from experimental, which made me unable to install Midori.
What could have caused this? A dist-upgrade before apt-pinning?

I have no idea.
It was caused by experimental have higher priority in preferences, as el_koraco pointed out.
What do you mean by doing a dist-upgrade before apt-pinning?
Cool new avatar!
^ Experimental is has a priority of 100 and Sid is 990.
I did it all myself, because there were a lot of stuff in your scripts, I didn't need. I may or may not have done a dist-upgrade before I made the /apt/preferences file, though I don't think it is the case. I was just wondering, whether that could have been the reason for the mess.
But no worries, I have downgraded all that needs downgrading, and I'm certain it was my own fault
I tried your how to yesterday and all was going great, a very easy how to to follow by the way and great How To, until it asked me to reboot the system and now I am stuck as it only goes as far as " welcome to grub " and then hangs. Let me tell you what I did. I followed your how to to install the business card ISO on a usb stick, my idea being that I could take it with me and have a Linux OS on any PC that would boot up from a usb stick, all went well until it asked to write the grub to the hard drive and as stated I said yes did the clock bit OK and then said reboot and that is as far as I got. I am guessing that as I was installing on a usb stick that I shouldn't have written the grub thing to the hard drive so I might have to start that again, I don't know though. My question is can you help me get the grub bit back working or will I have to do a complete reinstall again. Either way I'm easy, just another learning curve. By the way I am using Puppy Racy to post this.

I get no option of installing sid at this point. Should I expect it later?
Edit: Sorry, I hadn't noted I need to click the 'Expert Options'

Doh, I really liked this until aborting VastOne's install baseonly.sh script just installed everything anyway and seems to have borked it...
It was going to tty login, and now after the baseonly.sh script it doesn't.
Probably my own mistake. Running through the install again now anyway.
