Fair enough - it has worked well for a couple of years now on the 'wrong' 
system, but I did return it to Wheezy in case that was the problem.

But in fact there were two problems:
1 kde-trinity needed binutils < 2.23 but 2.23.something had been installed.
  That went when I  changed down to 2.22-8
2 kde-trinity-core needed arts-trinity which does not seem to be in the wheezy 
release. I added the nightly-builds and it went too.

would that explain the absence of arts-trinity?

I presume that when the mirrors are sorted, there will be an announcement on 
the website..?
