32-bit packages for 13.1 available:
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.
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.
does that means chmod -x kde* ?
There's two entries in xwmconfig :
xinitrc.trinity TDE: Trinity Desktop Environment
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."
After having startx'ed trinity, clicking on my computer, trash or my desktop leads to a "open with" window.
The web browser icon doesn't work.
There's no program in the k menu.
The control center icon doesn't work.
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.
