Exactly how did you install it? (moot if anything below solves)

Startx is not supposed to open a login manager. It should open a default DE
session, which probably should be TDE in your case.

Does /etc/X11/default-display-manager exist and contain /opt/trinity/bin/tdm?

What happens if you try

	dpkg-reconfigure tdm-trinity



	systemctl status tdm.service

show enabled and on :0 and active? It needs to be if you want TDM's login
manager working.
