I created a new Wheezy VM from scratch, added the
trinity-nightly-build-dependencies and trinity-nightly-builds PPAs,
installed tdebase-trinity, rebooted, and was greeted with a fully
functional TDE installation.  Something must have gone wrong in your
installation; you might have caught the TDE PPAs during a sources.list
update for example.
