Even though there is no official packaging of Trinity for Slackware, there are still to unofficial two ways to do so. Installation from binary packages is the easier solution, but installation from SlackBuilds offers a greater degree of control over the installation process.


SlackBuilds are available in the Ray-V/tde-slackbuilds repo on GitHub (also mirrored on TGW at SlavekB/tde-packaging-slackware).

To build Trinity run the `` script and follow the on-screen instructions. An example of the process is available here.

SlackBuilds for packages not included in Ray-V's repo can be built using an unofficial special SlackBuild generator, provided by a member of the Trinity team.

Notes on Ray-V's Slackbuilds

  • By default you are presented with the choice between the archive of the last release and either the r14.0.x or the master development branches. If you want to test out another branch (e.g. as a developer) you can use the environment variable $FEAT to set the branch name.

Binary packages

There are no official binary packages for Slackware at this time.

Unofficial packaging of TDE can be found in various places on the Internet, including the tde-slackware project on SourceForge.
