I just checked everything here and I can't find a problem. :-(

In the source tree the script is in tdebase, same place as starttde. The CMakeLists.txt file does include a directive to intall the script to $BIN_INSTALL_DIR, which on my system is /opt/trinity/bin, and is installed.

The script should be part of the tdebase package, however that might be named. Check the package and ask whomever is creating the package?

Let me know what you find.

Side note: We probably should add a test in starttde to ensure the script exists rather than presuming the script exists. There is always a chance an administrator could move the script to /usr/sbin or /usr/local/sbin.

If there is a consensus to rename then go ahead and rename. :-)
