Re: [trinity-devel] The Default Trinity Desktop

Great idea. 

The manual I wrote basically focuses on KDE and some basic gnu linux commands. 
Which may be outdated now. I could try to dig it up and see if it can be 
adapted. It also included a basic install and custom install guide which 
could be adapted to a given distro. Ark Linux had a full GUI installer with 
QTParted for its partitioner. It was still  under devel when everything came 
to a halt. :(


PS regardless of how its done or where it comes from, its a big project.
