TDE on Ubuntu 14.04

Hello.

How i can install TDE on Ubuntu 14.04?

Why there is no repository for it?

ant | 28 Aug 08:46 2014

changes in R14.0.0

Since upgrading  a few days ago, I get the following from KMail after a 
suspend:

"The IP address of the host mail.xxx.xxx does not match the one the 
certificate was issued to."

And I think this is true, thanks to my ISP's way of dealing with certificates. 
However, answering the next popup:

"Would you like to accept this certificate forever without being prompted?"

with 'Forever', does not have the desired effect, because it all happens again 
after the next suspend.

Any obvious reason for this, or any other diagnostics I can try? It seemed to 
be fine with 3.5.13.2

cheers

A little KDE Plasma 5 tour, just for curiosity

Hi,

Just to try it, I tested Plasma 5 on my computer. At this stage, it is still called Plasma 5, instead of KDE 5 because the software around the desktop is not all ready for Qt5.

Also, I provided some screenshots showing Trinity apps being run on Plasma 5. They have to be launched manually from Konsole, but they run run very well and they are even well integrated, when QTCurve widget style is used.

IMHO, Plasma 5 is much more agreeable and pleasant to use than it was in KDE4. Yes, it is much slower than Trinity, but it features less nonsense than KDE4. It has not crashed on me for the ''small'' time I tried it. The new K menu is a kind of hybrid between what is the Kicker and the Kickoff menu in Trinity.
From what I can see, it will make forget the KDE4 series pretty soon, when it will be ready, but Trinity performance and useability is still unbeatable :)

Please be reminded that I only posted these screenshot for curiosity and nobody has to look at it.
If you want to comment, please be open-minded.

have blown up kicker

greetings, good folks . . .

i'm running 3.5.13.2 on 12.04LTS on a 64-bit machine.

untril friday i had two monitors, secondary above primary. primary was 
1920x1080; secondary, though physically smaller, was 1920x1200. acquired a 
replacement secondary monitor, fundamentically identical (1920x1080) to 
the primary.

whereupon xrandr reported 1936x 2152. primary monitor is sharp, secondary 
has contrasting ghosts slightly to the right of the original image. 
thinking that my driver was flaked out, i d/led the latest geforce driver 
and installed it. i rebooted. xrandr briefly listed 1920x2152 (1920x2160 
would be correct) before kicker crashed. i have tried running dcop kicker 
kicher restart; sometimes it shows kicker restarting, but then it 
disappears not to return. there was a time when editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf 
(or before that, XF86config) would let one adjust things to get the video 
right, and that opening kcontrol and making, then unmaking, a change yo 
the kicker parameters would fix things. but the x configuration file 
structure has gone all odd, and i'm not sure i'd know anymore what to tell 
it anyway. i can go looking for a way to fix the screen configuration, i 
suppose, but i cannot live without my kicker.

ideas?

thanks.

gcc and Trinity dependencies

I didn't get any answers to this (see below)...
Is that because:
1 I didn't make myself clear?
2 Nobody knows?
3 I'm trying to do something so stupid it should be obvious to me?

cheers

emacs and trinity on ubuntu 14.04

A fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04.  I installed the trinity nightlies.  

The first thing I notice is trying to start emacs, I get the error. 

Undefined color: "FOREGROUND"

emacs -q also gives the same error.

emacs -nw works as expected.

Judging from this:

I believe it's is some weird X problem.  Since emacs worked fine when I edited /etc/apt/sources.lists to add the nightly repo, I'm guessing it is somehow related to installing TDE.

There is an Emacs.ad file in:
/opt/trinity/share/apps/tdedisplay/app-defaults/Emacs.ad

xrdb -query | grep -i emacs
Emacs*Background:       WINDOW_BACKGROUND
Emacs*Dialog*background:        BACKGROUND
Emacs*Dialog*foreground:        FOREGROUND
Emacs*Foreground:       WINDOW_FOREGROUND
Emacs*XlwScrollBar.Background:  BACKGROUND
Emacs*XlwScrollBar.Foreground:  FOREGROUND
Emacs*backgroundToolBarColor:   BACKGROUND
Emacs*bottomToolBarShadowColor: BACKGROUND
Emacs*menubar*background:       BACKGROUND
Emacs*menubar*foreground:       FOREGROUND
Emacs*popup*Background: BACKGROUND
Emacs*popup*Foreground: FOREGROUND
Emacs*toolBarShadowThickness:   0
Emacs*topToolBarShadowColor:    BACKGROUND
Emacs.default.attributeBackground:      WINDOW_BACKGROUND
Emacs.default.attributeForeground:      WINDOW_FOREGROUND

Any idea how to make emacs work again?

Thanks in advance.

Trinity on a Mint base?

Something somewhat similar to the Kubuntu 14.04 problem - a few months
ago I did a fresh install of Mint (Debian Mate) in order to have its
wifi functionality.  Then installed TDE base and several useful
packages, which work.  Later I installed TDM and other packages it
seemed to need and chose TDM as the login mechanism.  During login
using TDM, the list of available sessions doesn't include TDE, and the
subsequent desktop is still Mint.  So maybe I missed some packages or
configuration?

Hi,

Thank you for the info! Building and compiling software is still not at my reach...
The provided binary packages are quite old.

I think that I'll try to install TDE on Ubuntu-based Puppy Linux instead. Packages are already built and I have a better understanding of deb package installation than Slackware...


Thank you!

Should be fixed in commit 4ac8a1a8 (tde-packaging).
Updated packages are already available in apt source.

PCLinuxOS non-official TDE remaster version 2014, April 30 is ready to download!

Hi everyone!

My PCLinuxOS TDE non-official remaster version 2014, April 30 is ready to download!

I call it non-official because it doesn't come from the PCLOS team and since it contains software coming from outside of
their repos, it is also not supported by them. It only has a special ''permission to exist'' from the PCLinuxOS dev team.

It can be seen as a whole as the much-loved PCLOS 2007, but fully updated and upgraded.
It is a complete system that can be used as a LiveDVD or it can be installed (from the LiveDVD).

New on this release:
-Fully updated PCLinuxOS 2014 base system
-Based on stable TDE 3.5.13.2
-A theme switch Zenity script to let the user switch between the more modern theme I use and TDE Classic theme, to please more users.
-A SuperKaramba theme pack
-XBMC media center and wine are new apps included on the DVD

On this LiveDVD:
-Tons of TDE software and major apps like LibreOffice, Firefox and Gimp

Login info (on the LiveDVD):
Regular user:guest    Password:guest
Super user: root    Password:root

System requirement:
A x86 computer with at least 384mb of RAM.
It is a 32bit system, but it can be installed on a 64bit system too.

Download link:
PCLinuxOS_no_TDE_remaster_30avril2014.iso 1.99 GB
https://mega.co.nz/#!bkgRCKpa!HMakiQTlomIlq9I3O-8Ib117XeAOP4qwKo91FDjfFrg

Please note that you will need to install the MEGA Download Manager Firefox (or Iceweasel) plugin to download a file of that size.
If you are unsure about itd, you can uninstall the plugin right after the download.
