1. Configure the supplementary 3rdparty repositories

(for EL5, EL6) Install RPMFUSION repository: http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

(for EL7) Install NUX repository: http://li.nux.ro/repos.html

2. Download and install the configuration package for your distribution:

For RHEL/CentOS 4 (v3.5.13.2)

rpm -Uvh http://ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net/trinity/trinity/rpm/el4/trinity-3.5.13/RPMS/noarch/extras/trinity-repo-

For RHEL/CentOS 5 (v3.5.13.2)

wget http://ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net/trinity/trinity/rpm/el5/trinity-3.5.13/RPMS/noarch/extras/trinity-repo-
rpm -Uvh --nosignature trinity-repo-

For RHEL/CentOS 6 (14.0.0)

rpm -Uvh http://ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net/trinity/trinity/rpm/el6/trinity-r14/RPMS/noarch/trinity-repo-14.0.0-1.el6.opt.noarch.rpm

For RHEL/CentOS 7 (v3.5.13.2)

rpm -Uvh http://ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net/trinity/trinity/rpm/el7/trinity-3.5.13/RPMS/noarch/extras/trinity-repo-

3. Install the Trinity desktop environment

Installing the minimum, basic desktop (about 200 MB disk space required):

yum install trinity-tdebase

Installing the entire Trinity desktop (about 600 MB disk space required):

yum install trinity-desktop

Installing the entire Trinity desktop + all Trinity supported applications (about 1200 MB disk space required):

yum install trinity-desktop-all

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

yum install trinity-tde-i18n-French

Koffice translations:

yum install trinity-koffice-i18n-French

K3B translations:

yum install trinity-k3b-i18n-French

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

yum search trinity-

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

For CentOS 4, 5, 6

Edit or create file: /etc/sysconfig/desktop Add/modify the line:


Save the file then reboot your computer.

For CentOS 7

You must disable your current Display Manager in systemd. E.g:

systemctl disable gdm.service
systemctl disable kdm.service
systemctl disable xdm.service

Then enable TDM service:

systemctl enable tdm.service

Then reboot your computer.

7. (Optional) Install missing XINE codecs

By default, the Xine libraries provided with RHEL/CentOS cannot play some formats like MPEG1/MPEG2. As a result, Kaffeine cannot playback video DVD (among other problems). In order to add the missing codecs, you must install the "xine-lib-extra-freeworld" package, by typing the following command.

For CentOS? 6 (i686):

yum install http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/i386/xine-lib-extras-freeworld-

For CentOS? 6 (x86_64):

yum install http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/x86_64/xine-lib-extras-freeworld-
