Resources

The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) is a free and open-source desktop environment forked from KDE 3.5. Due to the fact it is forked from an old version of KDE (which is itself a resource-heavy desktop environment) it is considered light-medium weight by today's standards.

Preparation

repos.conf

Create a file in the /etc/portage/repos.conf directory (create the repos.conf directory first if it does not exist) called trinity.conf. Fill the file's contents with the following code:

FILE /etc/portage/repos.conf/trinity.conf
[trinity]
location = /usr/local/overlay/trinity
sync-type = git
sync-uri = https://github.com/Fat-Zer/trinity.git
auto-sync = yes
masters = gentoo

USE flags

The qt3 USE flag must be unmasked in order to install Trinity. To do this, run:

root #mkdir -p /etc/portage/profile
root #echo -qt3 >> /etc/portage/profile/use.mask
root #mkdir -p /etc/portage/packages.keywords/
root #cp /var/lib/layman/trinity /etc/portage/packages.keywords/
