Interresting. How do one start TQt?

Well, at the moment I run Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat with Trinity
installed  _but_ a Gnome/AWN Desktop (actually I recently moved to
Ubuntu because Mepis was going KDE 4, and I at first did not trust
"K"ubuntu, then for the moment stayed there) I do have a test install
of Debian lenny + Trinity, but Debian tends to be a little old in

So, if I try to start a KDE3 (sorry, Trinity :) app I get "the program
is not installed". Following some info I start my apps with scripts

KDEDIRS=/usr/:/opt/kde3/ KDEHOME=$HOME/.kde3
XDG_DATA_DIRS=/opt/kde3/share/:/usr/share/ MANPATH=/opt/kde3/share/man

I imagine I should be able to setup these paths somewhere, but did not
have time to look where until now.

As I like Mepis better than Ubuntu, I do hope that Trinity will
developp to a stage where Warren decides to use it (as he wisely did
not take up KDE 4 for a long time).
