I followed this webpage

To install TDE on Debian 7 wheezy, you will need to add Trinity Repository to your system sources.list file

Quote
sudo leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list

Add these lines to the end of your sources.list file
Quote
deb http://ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net/trinity/trinity-v3.5.13/debian wheezy main
deb-src http://ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net/trinity/trinity-v3.5.13/debian wheezy main
deb http://ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net/trinity/trinity-builddeps-v3.5.13/debian wheezy main
deb-src http://ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net/trinity/trinity-builddeps-v3.5.13/debian wheezy main

Now you can install TDE on Debian 7 Wheezy

https://www.trinitydesktop.org/wiki/bin/view/Documentation/DebianBinaryInstallation

This is where you find instructions for Debian 7. What about Debian testing like sparkylinux?

TDE can be installed on Debian stable, it is not compatible with Jessie so I don't think you can.
That's why I built Sparky TDE based on Debian stable Wheezy.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

I can't see it in synaptic package manager. Does it mean I have to install it using any other repositories?

I visited this website

and entered the debian wheezy repositories but there is no sparky-TDE. Do you mean anything else?

To install TDE on Debian stable Wheezy add TDE repository from the TDE project website.

I already posted that it didn't work for sparky, maybe due to the reason that sparky LxDE is jessie 8

Yes, that's right.
It doesn't work on Debian testing Jessie and Sparky too.
