Sorry for the late reply, installinmg OpenSUSE 13.1 with trinity prove
very challenging.

Your suggest worked but I decide to reinstall a mimimum x session then
put trinity on, as from the past
that soem times the newly install desktop might not become default
even you choose it, unless you manually
edit it in the proper section in /etc/sysconfig

I think I can help you with  Ctrl-Alt-Del problem, as I discover you
have to hit the other del key in the In-Del-Home-End-Pgup-PgDn block
on your keyboard to get it to work.

I have to comment on the lack of polish when Trinity  3.5.13-sru is
installed, I mean it all worked but when using Yast
to install applications, it got put into the proper top level menu,
but there is no sub menus like in KDE 3. So of you install a lot of
applicatons, it all ended up in a large almost unmanagable mess.
Should one regard Trinity  3.5.13-as not getting any attention at all
with all effort focus on R 14 series ?
