Nice project ! There are also the unsupported kde packages :

For my part I much prefer KDE3, but I admit I work only with kspread, quanta, kdevelop and kwrite

Looks like a hybrid of XFce, KDE, and Windows.

I wonder if Trinity will go over slack 12.1 too. It still reads cd-r disks better than later versions of slack so i keep it around.

Maybe. At a minimum qt3 must be built from the Trinity sources and then update to cmake 2.8 or newer.

I downloaded the sources. I see there're packages for 12.2 slack available too. Maybe i'll travel back in time, now that i gave up on using kde4 in favor of trying to adjust fluxbox or openbox to my tastes. I quite liked later incarnations of kde3, even now, it feels just like home using kde3 in 12.1.

Kde4 is nice and modern too, just, i figured, it takes so much time to configure it over and over after every release. So i'm currently DE-hopping.

Edit: konquerors kio functionality in kde4 is not in par with previous version - case-unsensitive view filtering in konqueror, launching file in kioslave by left clicking and in a separate viewer by middle clicking - not possible with kde4. Nostalgy.

Edit2: selecting a file in konquerors treeview by left clicking on a row anywhere next to the 'filename' field when 'single click for launching a file' is enabled. Sweet! I don't like aiming for plus sign all the time.

I'm using KDE 3.5.10 in 13.1. I hope to Real Soon Now build Trinity 3.5.13 packages for 13.1. There is another person who has built packages for 13.37.

The Trinity packages for 12.2 all work (I built them ). However, there were a couple of serious bugs in 3.5.12 that prevented me from using that release, which is why I stayed with 3.5.10. The bugs were related to kdesu and dcop. I think those bugs received attention in 3.5.13, but I won't know until I build and test the packages.

I'm using 12.2 on three machines in my LAN. I never noticed issues with CDs/DVDs, but I no longer use CD-Rs, only RW disks.

I remain open to KDE4 but there are certain design decisions in KDE4 that preclude me from using that desktop. All are related to the presumption that a user has bleeding edge hardware. IIRC, the latest KDE4 now has compiz enabled all the time. Although they can be disabled to one degree or another, the Akonadi/Nepomuk/Strigi triplet still causes problems for some people. In both cases KDE4 is not designed for older hardware. This is where Trinity (and Xfce) have a chance to shine. In the end, each desktop will find happy users.

alekow prepared the build scripts and packages for i486, then I've tried to adapt them just a little to build on x86_64.
(no need to say that 3.5.10 is totally unsupported; beside that it seems to work )

I anticipate soon making available Trinity 3.5.13 binary packages for Slackware 13.1. I am using 13.1 and that is what I built first. My build scripts are available at my web site. I have a 13.37 virtual machine where I can build and test, but first things first.

The likely location for the binary packages will be http://mirror.its.uidaho.edu/pub/tri...ity/slackware/. Likely there will be one big tar.gz file of all the packages I build as well as single packages. Slackers who do not use package managers can download manually.

I'm not a big user of any of the package managers. Therefore I would be grateful if somebody would provide me some basic instructions for the package managers that I can copy and paste to the Trinity web site (slackpkg, gslapt-get, etc.).

Further, I am only one person. I can perform only so much basic testing. For those interested, when available please install the packages and test them as much as possible. Or build the packages on your own. Break as much as possible. Some bugs will be packaging errors and some will be upstream in the Trinity code, but everything reported will help.

I likely will spend the next day or two performing some testing, but I hope by this weekend binary packages will be available.

Cool.
Will install a 13.1 to test as soon as you'll put binary packages.
