Trinity Desktop

 

The Trinity Desktop Environment is available to install for Sparky users now.

From Wikipedia:

The Trinity Desktop Environment project (TDE) is a fork of KDE 3.5, organised and led by Timothy Pearson, who had coordinated Kubuntu remixes featuring KDE 3.5, after Kubuntu switched to KDE 4. This project aims to release continuing bug fixes, additional features, and compatibility with recent hardware.

The Trinity desktop can be installed via 2 different ways.

1. Sparky APTus

Upgrade the packages to the latest versions:
– sparky-aptus 0.3.x
– sparky-desktop 20160509-1
– sparky-desktop-data 20160509
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sparky-aptus sparky-desktop sparky-desktop-data

Then run APTus from the system’s Menu and choose Trinity.

SparkyLinux 2.0 RC Trinity is out

 

Over a month ago I started testing Trinty – a fork of KDE 3.x – I was curious of progress of the TDE project. My tests went fairly hard, mainly due to lack of time and a few bugs. This week I was able to complete all the things so I decided to make an iso image of Sparky with TDE.

The project Trinity goes well (in my way) and I hope it will be developed in the future.
I’m not a big fan (never been) of GNOME 3 and KDE 4, but GNOME 2 and KDE 3 is a completely different story.

SparkyLinux 2.0 RC Trinity is based on Debian ‘stable’ branch ‘Wheezy’, that’s why has gotten number 2. It runs on Linux kernel 3.2, but added backports repository will let you install a newer kernel. All packages have been updated from Debian and Trinity repositories as of 2013-11-30. The Trinity environment and all its components are in version 3.5.13.2.

SparkyLinux Trinity features the default set of drivers, codecs, plugins and apps, such as:
internet: akregator, iceweasel, kget, kmail, ksirc, ktorrent, konqueror, konversation, kopete, krdc, krfb, wicd
multimedia: amarok, k3b, kmix, krec, smplayer2, vlc
graphics: gimp, gwenview, ksnapshot, kooka
office: kaddressbook, karm, knotes, korganizer, kpdf, kpresenter, kspread, kword, kexi

The Live system Live runs in English only (en_US). You can set your locale when installing Sparky on a hard/usb drive. After installation TDE needs a language package to be installed – read README.TXT file and set the new language in TDE Control Center.

64 bit system supports installation of 32 bit packages.

Minimum system requirements:
– CPU i386 or amd64
– RAM memory 384MB
– 5GB of hard drive or flash USB stick for installation – 10GB recommended
– an optical drive or USB port

Sparky Trinity 32 bit consumes 115 MB of RAM memory only (on my machine) so I think it’s really good result. 64 bit version uses two times more RAM than 32 bit – it’s about 220MB.

I wanna say that it’s a kind of experiment and I don’t know I will keep developing the version.
If somebody will be interesting with that, we can talk about that at our forum.
