If you want to use Wheezy I think  it is best to use TDE3.5.14, which is nightly 
builds as of now. I  have a test situation setup  with Wheezy & the TDE 3.5.14 
nightlies, it is working okay. I won't upgrade my workstation until both are 
official releases though. Squeeze and  Slávek Banko'w is working great 
for my use.

I install Debian using the auto install mode. When the task select screen comes up 
I un-check the desktop meta package. This give me a base install + the standard X  or DE stuff. I then add Trinity to my sources.list, I don't run 
with a backup DE installed.  

I add apps which depending on which tool-kit was used to buld them , I get 
additional libraries, etc .from GTK or Gnome, or ?
