Configure the package manager
Add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file.
NOTE 1: make sure to replace <your-distribution-release-name> with your actual distribution name (for example 'bullseye').
NOTE 2: deb-src lines following are optional.
TDE R14.0.x series
deb http://mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org/trinity/deb/trinity-r14.0.x raspbian-<your-distribution-release-name> main deb http://mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org/trinity/deb/trinity-builddeps-r14.0.x raspbian-<your-distribution-release-name> main deb-src http://mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org/trinity/deb/trinity-r14.0.x raspbian-<your-distribution-release-name> main deb-src http://mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org/trinity/deb/trinity-builddeps-r14.0.x raspbian-<your-distribution-release-name> main
Import GPG signing key
The best way to install GPG key is to manually download and install package
trinity-keyring. The advantage is that this method of installation is not dependent on the availability of the key server. Another advantage is that the key is not integrated into the global apt keyring, but is installed as a separate file:
$ wget http://mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org/trinity/deb/trinity-keyring.deb $ sudo dpkg -i trinity-keyring.deb
If you are doing a fresh TDE installation, please follow the steps listed below.
If you are upgrading from an existing R14.0.x version, please follow the instruction under the upgrading section.
Fresh R14.0.x installation
The following steps are suggested for installing the latest R14.0.x version.
NOTE: tde-trinity package is a comprehensive meta-package. To install a minimalist environment, replace tde-trinity with tdebase-trinity in the instructions below.
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo aptitude install tde-trinity
NOTE: After installing the environment, it is also a good idea to install the localization packages so that you can switch the environment to your native language. For example for Czech:
$ sudo aptitude install tde-i18n-cs-trinity
Upgrading from an existing R14.0.x installation
The following steps are suggested for upgrading to the latest R14.0.x version.
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo aptitude full-upgrade
This will upgrade TDE to the newer version and should complete smoothly.
