On this page you can read the instructions to install or upgrade the Trinity Desktop Environment on your Ubuntu system.
Live CD Images for Ubuntu with Trinity preinstalled are also available here.


Ensure the Ubuntu Universe and Multiverse repositories are available for use

As root (e.g. using sudo), uncomment (remove the # marks from) the lines of your /etc/apt/sources.list file that include Universe and Multiverse
If your system does not contain entries for Universe and Multiverse, append " universe multiverse" to your main Ubuntu repository line
Alternatively, you may use graphical tools or other tutorials to enable the Universe and Multiverse repositories--the exact method of enabling is not important to the TDE installation process


Ensure the Ubuntu Recommended Updates repository is available for use

As root (e.g. using sudo), uncomment (remove the # marks from) the lines of your /etc/apt/sources.list file that include -updates
If your system does not contain entries for -updates, copy your main Ubuntu repository line to the end of the /etc/apt/sources.list file and append -updates to the distribution name
Alternatively, you may use graphical tools or other tutorials to enable the Recommended Updates repository--the exact method of enabling is not important to the TDE installation process


Add these lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file

Add the GPG signing key

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net --recv-keys F5CFC95C


Install Trinity

If you are doing a fresh TDE installation, please follow the steps listed below.
If you are upgrading from version 3.5.13.x, please follow the instruction under the upgrade section.

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install kubuntu-default-settings-trinity kubuntu-desktop-trinity


Upgrade from v3.5.13.x

NOTE Before upgrading from v3.5.13.x (or even KDE3), please make sure to go through this page for useful tips suggested by other TDE users.
We suggest the following steps for upgrading to the R14.0.4 version.

sudo apt-get update
sudo aptitude full-upgrade

This will upgrade TDE to the new version and should complete smoothly. After these two steps, some dummy packages may still be installed on your system and could be safely removed. To perform such operation, choose one of the following optional steps.

  • A. If you have previously installed some Trinity meta packages (such as kde-core-trinity, kdeadmin-trinity, ...) use:
sudo aptitude install <tde-equivalent-metapackage>

where <tde-equivalent-metapackage> is the equivalent package in R14 (tde-core-trinity, tdeadmin-trinity, ...).
This should be repeated for all installed meta packages.


  • B. Run aptitude in interactive mode, limit the display to '~i-trinity~ddummy" and manually check/delete/upgrade unneeded packages from the ones displayed.

Upgrading Ubuntu and TDE from a previous version

WARNING: Using a live Ubuntu CD to upgrade your Trinity system may break your installation.
Instead, please follow these instructions.

1) Make sure you have update manager installed. Use the Adept Manager to install the update-manager package, or run

sudo apt-get install update-manager

2) Run the update-manager through console. Open a terminal and run:

update-manager

3) Check for updates and install all updates before proceeding. You need to have the latest packages to proceed.

4) Run the distribution upgrade tool. Click the upgrade button. Read the release notes, then let it download the upgrade tool. Authenticate with your password and let the upgrade run.

5) If you are upgrading from KDE 3 or TDE 3.5.x series, on the verification screens make sure there are no kde* packages anymore (for example, kdebase-kde3, kdelibs-kde3, kdebase-trinity, kdelibs-trinity).

6) You can allow the upgrade tool to check for obsolete packages. It should not remove TDE related ones.
