As far as I know via TDM. I start in graphical mode and tdm is the 
DisplayManager in Sysconfig.

I've set them to 4711 but no change

This brought interresting elements:

The current situation is:
- I get to the TDM login screen
- I log in, checking that "tde" is the choosen session type
- I'm dropped to an X looking screen, with a sort of terminal window in the 
upper left corner, that also acts as such if my mouse is inside.

From there, startx starts IceVM

If I try /opt/trinity/bin/starttde startx I get:

a) in the terminal

[starttde] Setting TDEROOTHOME to /root/.trinity.

b) in a message box:

The r14-xdg-update script has been run at least once.
The script is not successfully updating

The error code is 3;6.

So it seems (to me) that there is a problem in the update script for the 
openSUSE install. If I have time I will try installing from scratch, but I 
wonder if going from 14.0.0 to 14.0.3 is worth reconfiguring everything...

Anyway, thanks Felix for those hints.

Have a good day,
