Still says "command not found"? That would mean that the PATH setting was 
not successful. Please check it in xterm (or terminal emulator, which is 
in xfce).

I progressed so that I whole ".trinity" put aside. After that I login with 
new Trinity profile and have tested that keyboard is in order. After then 
I logout, copied back to ".trinity" selected parts of settings (kmail,

next parts of the settings.
