The meta-package 'tde-trinity'  includes quite a few other 'meta--packages' as 
depends. Use 'apt-cache depends tde-trinity' to view them. 

You can safely remove 'meta-packages'...start with 'tde-trinity' since it 
pulls in a 'full' TDE desktop enviroment.

For a slim install I start with 'tdebase-trinity' , and add as needed.
