How did you 'switch' to R14 ? There is a thread on the TDE users list: 

:Most simple way to upgrade Trinity"  discussing how to upgrade TDE. 
Since the upgrade path has not been , at least, documented yet, 
feedback is welcome on what you did, sources.list, commands or ?.

To fix a possible broken install I would make sure I did not have any 
packages with 'KDE' in the name since R14 has renamed everthing? to TDE
Purge leftover KDE-* packages
