Hello,
there is no apt-get in Fedora, and even if there was, the official 
repositories are not in APT format, so it would be useless.
The "adept" program is designed for apt-get only, so I did not even 
built it on Fedora.
Kpackage is usable with RPM packages, alas it lacks features that YUM 
provides.

So there is no good package manager for Fedora in Trinity.
I suggest you install "yumex", it is in GTK but does not require the 
entire gnome.

Install with:
   yum install yumex
