[trinity-users] startx exits instantly in Mageia 5/R14 (where to set global default session type?)

Fresh minimal HTTP Mageia 5 installation today, followed by minimalist TDE
installation attempt using urpmi.

Unless startx has /opt/trinity/bin/starttde appended, desktop briefly paints,
then back to vtty from which started. If started from greeter, TDE session is
OK, though many items are missing from systemsettings, e.g. TDE components,
required to reach session manager.

Nothing clueful in Xorg.0.log. This is all that's in .xsession-errors after
attempting startx:
/etc/X11/Xsession: line 108: /usr/sbin/chksession: No such file or directory
/root/Music was removed, reassigning MUSIC to homedir
/root/Pictures was removed, reassigning PICTURES to homedir
/root/Videos was removed, reassigning VIDEOS to homedir
/etc/X11/Xsession: line 175: xclock: command not found
/etc/X11/Xsession: line 176: xvt: command not found
/etc/X11/Xsession: line 185: /usr/bin/xsm: No such file or directory

Where does global default session type need to be set? /etc/sysconfig/desktop
with DISPLAYMANAGER=/opt/trinity/bin/tdm doesn't to it. doesn't help.
