Ubuntu 14.04 , TDE 14.0 - first install here w/Trusty and TDE 14.

This is puzzling...

  $ kiconedit
  The program 'kiconedit' is currently not installed.
  You can install it by typing:
  sudo apt-get install kiconedit

Well, I know if I do _that_, I'll end up with all of KDE 4.
(I was bitten by something similar to that once on Ub 10.04 and TDE 13)

  $ sudo apt-get install kiconedit-trinity
  Reading package lists... Done

  kiconedit-trinity is already the newest version.

  $ kiconedit-trinity
  kiconedit-trinity: command not found

So, I poke around in the TDE Menu and find it as TDEIconEdit.
So, in fact, the CLI /bin name is `tdeiconedit`.

How many more 'surprises' are there like that in TDE 14 versus TDE 13?
And, how is a neophyte linux user (which my First Wife is about to
become) suppose to know how to conqueror (or, is it TDEKonqueror?) such
problems as they arise?

Ok, ok ... so it was really just a rant.  :-)
