Re: [trinity-users] Trinity on a Mint base?

I installed TDE on Ubuntu based Mint 15 + Mate. I had a similar problem
with TDE menu item missing from MDM, a Mint config app that kept auto
starting, and Mate autostarting when I logged out of TDE. I removed MDM
and Mate base apps, and bit-by-bit removed other suspect parts of Mate
until the problems stopped. I believe I used startx for a while and then
added TDM with SAK manually disabled in kdmrc before the first logout.

I did not have those problems running TDE in Mint + Xfce. On that installation
I was able to leave Xfce fully intact with no such problems.

Mint continued to have a nasty problem with refusing to turn off the computer
after shutdown or complete the reboot cycle. That has nothing to do with TDE,
of course.
