When uninstalling TeX, what you may have added or modified inside / 
usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/ isn't touched. Hence, if there is  
a config file there interfering with the working of the system, it  
won't be removed.

Once everything is reinstalled, and you've verified LaTeX works, then  
you may put back your additions one by one, and see what happens.

Also, in case that's what you did, never copy use verbatim a config  
or similar file from a previous TeX setup (for example your previous  
Debian TeX): inspect the config files from gwTeX, and merge back your  
modifications manually in these files, one by one.

As a previous Textures user, I remember people once reporting  
problems here, which turned out to be caused by the fact that, when  
migrating to gwTeX, they had just copied their Textures TeX input  
directories inside ~ /texmf.
