So you copied your home directory - correct?

I am not quite sure, if it would work, I did the migration long time ago.
What I can recall is that there were some migration scripts automatically
running when you first start TDE.

Alternatively you can (of course first backup your ~/.kde3 directory) and
you can try moving/renaming or copying ~/.kde3 to ~/.trinity

I am not sure what I did when I moved to TDE - it might have been copy as I
think it was quite easy.
