I tried now to a very clean machine (my builder == not containing anything 
other than the basic system). To:

aptitude install desktop-base-trinity kde-trinity

I get:

0 packages upgraded, 553 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 367 MB of archives. After unpacking 950 MB will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]
