There is one issue with the tdm greeter that needs patching due to the loss of
consolekit between the last build and now to prevent tdm from reappearing after
a login attempt:

  sed -i 's/ck-launch-session\ //' /opt/trinity/share/config/tdm/Xsession

(updated tdebase packages are in work)

There were only 2 other immediate issues:

  (1) conflicting x-mplayer2.desktop between kaffeine and tdelibs (fixed)
  (2) tdenetworkmanager crash on start (in work)

Other than that, simply install TDE as listed above, then

  systemctl enable tdm

Shutdown your current desktop and 'systemctl start tdm' -- or just reboot :) It
is running fine. I'm sure there are more issues to be found, but given the full
set of packages had not been updated in a year, it seems to be running great!

All further status updates will be posted to the wiki.
