Hi Slavek (and others),

first of all many thanks for all your efforts. I have a fresh Ubuntu Precise 
32 bit install here and just updated. Most of the parts are working well. A 
few comments / questions though:

1) I looked a while for your ppa and what string I have to put into my 
apt/sources.list file to use it. Nothing is mentioned at the Trinity page. 
Don't you want a bigger audience to test your packages? Where do you 
advertise for your ppas?

2) I first freshly installed Ubuntu 12.04 including unity (normal Ubuntu 
install). Afterwards I installed TDE. I had to remove kgtk-qt3-trinity for 
the system to work well (e.g. downloading files with firefox was not 
possible, ...).  Maybe due to that order I have a few quirks to solve now:

a) lightdm is the default Desktop Manager. Where can I switch to TDM?

b) I can not shutdown my computer from menue. Only a logout button is shown. I 
have to log out, open the menu in lightdm and than press shutdown. Can I 
change this?

c) No menue pops up when I connect a USB stick to my computer. I have to 
mount / unmount by hand or launch nautilus where all works like expected. Any 
chance to change this? My guess: seems to be a HAL /DBUS problem.

d) Launching an mp3 in Konqueror starts Amarok but gives message: "xine was 
unable to initialize any audio drivers". If I enable the sound system in 
system-settings the message "Restarting sound system" stays forever in the 
pop-up affter an Apply. (Sound in Audacity works well!)

If it is necessary to remove Unity from my system for the above to work I will 
happily do it but at least someone should give me the hint that that is the 
direction to go.
