Can I Live Trade IB Trial Account?

I created an IB trial account today that consists of a paper trading account. I've added the account to my Quantopian profile, but when I try to authenticate and start live trading an algorithm with it I receive an error dialog titled "Unknown Error" with the message "Something went wrong".

My question is can I live trade a trial IB account, or do I need an actual account with an associated paper trading account? Or am I just being impatient and it takes a little while for my account to propagate through the IB system and be available for live trading?

Any tips or info would be much appreciated.

Quantopian has their own paper trading. I think for IB, you have to deposit actual money to use the paper trading.
