First of all, welcome to the Trinity mailing list :-)

I am using Ubuntu 11.10 and it works very well. 12.04 does not yet
have stable Trinity packages. I originally installed the regular
ubuntu 11.10 and installed trinity packages on top of it. There
shouldn't be any conflicts with KDE4, but it's annoying to have it
wasting space on my system - so I installed the regular Ubuntu, and
then uninstalled Unity. Xubuntu 11.10 would be suitable.
