I tried a fresh install on Ubuntu 10.04, on a machine with a somewhat
old Nvidia 7300 (and using the nightly builds). There was no real
problem (seems pulse audio is a little itchy) and setting up the dual
monitors from the settings panel was a piece of cake.

So i could not say of your problems are linked to the upgrade, your
hardware, It's not clear for me either what exactly you did, as you
say "Removing desktop-base-trinity  made it possible to get a login
screen". But if you removed desktop-base-trinity I'am not really
surprised that "TDE apps worked" as it seems you had just removed the
base they needed.
