openSUSE Trinity Repository Installation Instructions

1. Remove KDE3 related packages first

In case you already have openSUSE's KDE3 installed on your computer, you must uninstall it prior to installing Trinity. But even if you have not installed KDE3, you may have some KDE3 packages installed on your system. At this time, you cannot have both working KDE3 and working Trinity on the same computer.

To uninstall KDE3, type the following command:

zypper remove arts hal kdeaccessibility3 kdeartwork3 kdebase3 kdebindings3 kdeedu3 kdegames3
kdegraphics3 kdelibs3 kdemultimedia3 kdenetwork3 kdepim3 kdesdk3 kdetoys3 kdeutils3 kdewebdev3

2. Configure the supplementary PACKMAN repository

Packman home page:

Instructions for configuring:

3. Configure the ZYPPER repository (as root user)

For openSUSE Leap 15.1

(Currently supported by openSUSE)

rpm --import
zypper ar trinity
zypper ar trinity-noarch

Note the last parameter of ar lines are any names of a user's choosing.

4. Install the Trinity desktop environment

zypper refresh
zypper install trinity-desktop

The trinity-desktop package is a comprehensive meta-package. To install minimalist, substitute trinity-tdebase for trinity-desktop, and append trinity-tdm if you wish to use TDM as your display manager.

5. (Optional) Install your locale translation package, e.g for French translation

zypper install trinity-tde-i18n-French

Koffice translations:

zypper install trinity-koffice-i18n-French

K3B translations:

zypper install trinity-k3b-i18n-French

Note: you can obtain a list of available TDE packages with the following command:

zypper search trinity-

6. (Optional) Sets TDM as the default display manager

In expired support releases, edit file "/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager" and set DISPLAYMANAGER="tdm"
In currently supported releases, use "update-alternatives --config default-displaymanager" to select TDM.

Then reboot your computer.
