I doubt anyone could predict viability of any particular DE over another. If 
you can get any DE to work in X, then TDE should be no problem if there is a 
version published for that release.

If you want to know if you should expect 12.10 to work, boot its live media 
and see what happens. If it works, then a 12.10 installation should work too.

As for getting from 10.10 to 12.10, be sure to follow the published 
instructions. Normally an upgrade to each intermediate version is the only 
way to expect to avoid a mess, and X certainly might break along the way. A 
clean install might be easier, especially if you already have /home on a 
separate filesystem.

The Trinity list is short of ideal for discussing generic X trouble like 
yours. Instead, try either or 
whatever list may be dedicated to X on your distro of choice.
