OK this is what I thought. KDE3 conflicts with TDE.
Until we find a trick, we cannot use both on the same computer.

You can remove "kdeartwork3" and install "trinity-tdeartwork".
You can remove "kde3-gtk-qt-engine" and install "trinity-qt-engine".

About the 2 other packages, I don't know if they are specific to Suse, 
specific to KDE3, or both.
But they are not needed (and not even used) by Trinity, so they are 
useless to you. You'd better remove them to avoid other strange

If you have the "kde3-gtk-qt-engine" installed but not 
"trinity-gtk-qt-engine", it cannot work correctly.

Nice find. It could be a Trinity enhancement, you should fill a bug 
report for it.

Finally I've just installed KDE3 in my virtual machine which already had 
TDE, and I confirm that I have the exact same missing symbol as you have.
FYI, the file /etc/ contains /opt/kde3/lib64 
and /opt/kde3/lib .
Since "kdelibs3.conf" comes before "trinity.conf" in alphabetical order, 
the kde3 libraries take precedence over Trinity libraries.

I'm glad it finally works for you :-)
I hope you will enjoy Trinity.
