  Kaiting Chen has provided server space for Trinity binaries. Currently I have
the i686 files uploaded and will upload x86_64 shortly (after my kids are done
with toontown....)

  The url for the i686 repo is:


(Trinity packages are 2/19/2011 builds)

  The x86_64 repo will be the same url with x86_64.

  Trinity needs a clean environment currently (no kdemod3). If you have had a
prior kdemod3 install, then delete:


and move ~/.kde somewhere else.

  If you have kde4 installed, then expect akonadi/nepomuk and all the kde4
autostart files in /usr/share/autostart to run (Trinity devs are working on a
way to ignore all the kde4 autostart files)

  To install trinity, just add the repo to /etc/pacman.conf:

Server = http://www.kiwilight.com/~drankinatty/trinity/i686/

  Then just do 'pacman -Sy trinity-kdewebdev' and it will pull in the complete
Trinity desktop (kdewebdev requires all trinity dependencies)

  I recommend installing it in either a clean Arch install, or just create a new
Arch virtualbox VM and install it there. It is a darn good looking desktop.

  x86_64 packages by the morning :)

  See: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Trinity for current details :)
