A general question about Trinity

Dear list,

Yesterday I decided to install latest openSUSE (12.2) on one of my laptops. Suse provides KDE3 
repositories, though I know not everything went smooth with these builds in the past. I started 
in the morning and after spending whole day on installing, configuring and solving problems I 
realized that I'm not even halfway finished! The problem is that KDE3 is not being updated to 
work with some system services and thus many features just don't work out of the box, e.g. 
unmounting of auto-mounted drives or adding new internet connections to NetworkManager (I suspect 
polkit to be the culprit). In desperation I installed KDE4, since I need a working computer, but 
now I'm trying to figure out what to do next. I am considering switching to Debian or Ubuntu 
(though there are no packages for 12.04 LTS!) so I can install Trinity. I am worried however that 
I might encounter similar problems as with KDE. So my big question is: does Trinity provide all 
these basic fetures like automounting, network management etc. out-of-the-box or does it require 
to spend a lot of time to configure the system?
