The best/most complete way for tde install is:
1.  install a standard unity ubuntu
2. google tde desktop and go to the site:

3. follow the directions for adding the relevant repositories and keys  to 
your system
4. install aptitude.
5 . followthe last directions from the tde site, install trinity.
6. in the middle of the installation choose your display manager. btw, if that 
was doable at the start of the installation, it would make things more 
7. go for wine/beer/coffee/tea/juice/milk/ i hope no soda carcinogens:)
8. come back, enjoy:)

good luck,
