OS13.1: nothing provides trinity-tdenetwork-*, jasper, maybe others?

High everyone,

I tried to install TDE on OS 13.1 earlier this year, on a VM somewhere on
the net, and though I found helping minds here, I abandoned the idea, due
to the fact that it won't be very useful anyway over a sluggish connection
as mine.

Now I got a new box, on which I want to install Trinity, because it's the
only DE that I find really useful. I guess the computer is powerful enough
to even run KDE 4, but I want my kicker...

So much to the asides, now to the point:

When I tried to install TDE on that VM, I've had problems obviously because
there were already KDE 4 components installed; I remembered that and avoided
any other KDE stuff by just installing the base system with minimal X.

I followed the steps described on
and it was fine until I reached the `zypper install trinity-desktop` command.

I tried both the command line version and the YaST frontend, and both

Problem: trinity-desktop- requires trinity-tdenetwork >=, but this requirement can not be provided
  uninstallable providers: trinity-tdenetwork-[trinity]
 Solution 1: do not install trinity-desktop-
 Solution 2: break trinity-desktop- by ignoring some of its dependencies

Okay, but the objected package is there... what's wrong?

I then tried to first install tdenetwork first (only command line), and it
also complained, but in a way that I really did not expect:

Problem: nothing provides jasper needed by trinity-tdenetwork-
 Solution 1: do not install trinity-tdenetwork-
 Solution 2: break trinity-tdenetwork- by ignoring some of its dependencies

I'm a peaceful man, so I decided not to break anything, hence I'm back
again on this mailing list to ask for your help. I'm sure you know already
what went wrong...

Thanks in advance and best regards,
