your problem with the keyboard reminds me that I once had a broken 
keyboard in Trinity 3.5.12 on the machine my parents. On a text console 
worked without problems. The KDM worked without problems, but after 
logging into their profile did not work.

Probably not comforted you - it was something in the profile. Although 
Trinity 3.5.12 used for more than a year, suddenly "something" happened 
and keyboard just did not work.

When I put away the profile and started with the new, the keyboard works. 
Gradually, I put back to profile important settings (kmail, kopete, 
bookmarks,...) and keyboard still works. Unfortunately, I did not go into 
such detail, and so I not find causes.

Note: Under LXDE TDE programs can not run, because TDE is not set in the 
system PATH. TDE into PATH usually adds startkde. Try:

export PATH=/opt/trinity/bin:$PATH
export KDEDIR=/opt/trinity
export KDEHOME=$HOME/.trinity

...and then run TDE programs.
