Installed R14.0.1 but no desktop

I successfully got the key for Slávek Banko's repository in order to 
authenticate a preliminary stable build of R14.0.1 to use with Jessie. I 
then installed tde-trinity -- a total of 503 packages.

When the login manager appeared, after selecting TDE as my session type 
I was able to log in as my user.  The default flash screen appeared with 
seven icons across the bottom.  The first four were highlighted briefly.

When the fifth one, “Loading the desktop”, appeared the icon flashed for 
50 seconds, then the flash screen disappeared, leaving only the original 
blue screen with blotches of white of various shapes, the Debian swirl 
in red and the cursor – nothing else.  From this point I could do 
nothing else.

What I i supposed to do now?  Was something was missed in the installation?
