I use only Debian, however I read that LMDE is a "rolling release" based on Debian Testing (Wheezy) It cannot be "compatible with Squeeze" It is quite adventurous to run Testing at all. It should be regularly dist-upgraded; sometime it breaks needing manual fixes. I did a successful install of TDE with Wheezy but it was a few months back, I didn't maintain it. I had to install some individual packages from Squeeze, don't remember what they were, it will be different now anyway. I will reinstall it soon. Can you post more details of your dependency issues? Might help others get TDE going on Wheezy.
