Sounds pretty much like the tiny window-manager called twm (it came per default with lenny, but now no more
Install the environment you like:
and then one of the following:
apt-get install kde (?)
apt-get install xfce4
apt-get install gnome (gnome-desktop-environment ?)
apt-get install gnome-core
and what else is out there. I for one would go for xfce4 or gnome-core...
First of all you might try:
ls /usr/bin | grep session
ls /usr/bin | grep start
PS: btw. sudo:viewtopic.php?f=16&t=45390
but su sure is a good choice.
