I have installed trinity successfully in Kubuntu 10.04 (and
will not try to upgrade to 12.04 till
will add 12.04 officially.

The procedure was more complicated than I thought:

1. Problem sudo:

The workaround is to temporarily set a root password, install sudo-kde3, then
unset the root password. The following commands should do that:
1. sudo passwd
2. Enter a new (temporary) root password at the prompt
3. sudo apt-get install sudo-kde3
4. sudo passwd -l root

2. Problem: kdelibs problem
sudo dpkg -i --force-all

3 Problem hhotnetsuffrc problem
sudo apt-get remove --purge khotnewstuffrc

4. Problem again kdelibs4c2a
sudo apt-get install kdelibs4c2a-kde3  
sudo apt-get install kdelibs4c21-kde3 kdelibs-data-kde3
