Okay I've built a minimal quickbuild for PCLinuxOS 2012.
Use the following instructions to install TDE 3.5.13.1 (as root user):

echo "rpm http://trinity.mangafrance.com/pclos2012/ trinity-3.5.13/RPMS 
i586 noarch" >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/trinity.list

apt-get update

apt-get install trinity-tdebase

chksession -k -g

If KDE4 is installed, the following script messes up with TDE. You have 
to move it until I found a solution:
mv  /etc/profile.d/kde4env.sh  /etc/profile.d/kde4env.sh.OLD

Then restart X server.

Login and choose "TDE" session, which should be in the list. TDE should 
be available in bot KDM and GDM.


Have fun with TDE :-)
