Where do I get TDE?
The easiest way to get TDE is to install a Linux based distribution or another Unix-like operating system that includes TDE. You can find an up-to-date list of distributions that ship with TDE here.
The main distribution site for TDE is http://www.trinitydesktop.org/.
What is the current version?
TDE is developed continually. Find the latest stable version number here.
Binary packages are not available for my distro. What do I do?
That is always a challenging situation. Are there skilled packagers who might help? If you are skilled in compiling software from sources, source tarballs are available for each TDE release (http://www.trinitydesktop.org/releases.php). The development version can also be built from our GIT source tree. Use the forums or mailing lists to contact packagers to obtain copies of their build scripts that can be massaged to fit your distro.
Where do I find TDE snapshots?
Learn more about the latest development snapshots at http://www.trinitydesktop.org/development.php. You might want to consider setting up your own GIT account to maintain the latest snapshot at all times. Please refer to http://www.trinitydesktop.org/development.php for further information.
Where do I get Qt?
Qt is a product of the Norwegian company Trolltech. The version upon which TDE is based no longer is actively maintained by Trolltech. Maintenance is handled by the TDE developers. Get the latest Qt version from the TDE GIT repository at http://git.trinitydesktop.org/.
With most Linux distributions, this version of Qt no longer is included or maintained and must be obtained from the TDE repositories. Because this version of Qt is now maintained exclusively to support TDE, the version supported by TDE developers is not backwards compatible with the original version from Trolltech.
