Ok thx !

Trinity Compatibility With KDE4

Trinity is intended to be compatible with KDE4. The best way I find to do that
is to disable the KDE4 scripts in /etc/profile.d. Please forward better
methods for using both Trinity and KDE4. Thanks!
does that means chmod -x kde* ?


I installed it.
There's two entries in xwmconfig :

xinitrc.trinity TDE: Trinity Desktop Environment
xinitrc.trinity xinitrc.trinity

After having startx'ed trinity, clicking on my computer, trash or my desktop leads to a "open with" window.
The web brower icon doesn't work.

Konqueror seems to work fine (and i greatly appreciate !)

There's no program in the k menu.

The control center icon doesn't work.

32-bit packages for 13.1 available:

http://www.trinitydesktop.org/

This is a typical Slackware effort. That is, read the documentation before jumping in head first.

Please report bugs and other problems. The mailing lists are best but I'll check here too.

I have a 32-bit 13.37 virtual machine. I hope to start building packages soon. My build scripts and environment are available at my web site if anybody wants to try building packages for other versions or 64-bit.

http://humanreadable.nfshost.com/sdeg/kde_35x.htm

Please understand this is a community effort. In other words, everybody who wants to use the packages are beta testers by default. If that concerns you then please test in a virtual machine or spare physical machine and not a production box.

Yup.

I would be grateful if somebody would look at my modified xwmconfig. I know I did not get things just right. Yes, the stock xwmconfig can be used. There won't be a dedicated option for Trinity --- only an option to choose "xinitrc.trinity."

Classic last words: works for me.

Can you provide more details for anything that does not work? Such as running apps from a terminal windows and watching stdout? Checking your xsession log?

Also, be sure you are not using a KDE3 profile directory to run Trinity. You need to migrate any KDE3 profile and scrub the files of KDE3 remnants or start with a fresh Trinity profile.

Nobody has reported any dramatic issues with migrating a KDE3 profile to Trinity, but many people have reported anomalies. We need to assemble a list and then make the conversion snippet in the startkde script more robust. That can only happen if people report what they find. For example, as I mention in the README, without scrubbing you won't be able to play Solitaire (kpatience) unless you edit or delete the kpat config file or start with a fresh profile.

Also make sure you are not using or migrating a KDE4 profile.

For the next release there will be a significant focus on bug quashing and quality control. All reports, complaints, sniveling, whining, screaming, etc., are much appreciated and requested. Well, not screaming --- please use your punching bag before submitting reports.

I just installed 13.1, grabbed your packages under Xfce, installpkg'ed them.
Didn't launch any kde.

Will test further in next days.

Thanks ^^.

Do you think it's better to use QT3 from SBo or from TDE ? (or both)

The version of Qt3 from SBo is 3.3.8.d and is intended for KDE3 and non KDE3 Qt3 apps, such as QCAD.

Trinity, both GIT and 3.5.13, will not build against Qt3 3.3.8.b. There have been ABI changes that break backwards compatibility.

If you build 3.5.13 then you must use Qt3 3.3.8.d that came with Trinity.

Current Trinity development efforts have moved toward an updated version of Qt3 called TQt3, which also is not backwards compatible. If you build Trinity from the GIT repositories you must use TQt3.

I hope that helps.

So i suppose that if i want both, i have to be careful about TDE pathes.

Yes. Although there has been some renaming with Trinity, most of the apps still use the same name. Therefore the two package sets must be built with different $PREFIX install locations.

I haven't done any testing with Trinity and KDE4 installed together but I have tested Trinity and KDE3 together. 'Tis a mess and the menu contains both sets of apps and there is no way to distinguish them. And although the Trinity bin dir is before the /usr/bin dir in $PATH, seems the two desktops get confused trying to do much with the other along side.

A while back somebody conjured a way to distinguish KDE4 apps in the TDE menu by appending "[KDE4]" to the menu item, but nothing like that yet exists for KDE3.

Commonly most people build Trinity to install to /opt/trinity rather than /usr. Of course, if neither KDE3 nor KDE4 is going to be installed, then feel free to build to /usr.

I don't what you're implying.

I haven't tested KDE3 with KDE4, but I can say that if you are using the stock Slackware then KDE3 packages will need to be built to install to some place other than /usr. For example, /opt/kde3.

Also necessary is properly setting environment variables, such PKG_CONFIG_PATH, PATH, XDG_CONFIG_DIRS and XDG_DATA_DIRS. Note also that KDE3 and KDE4 share many of the same environment variables. I had to patch KDE3 to avoid that problem.
