Compliments of tcrroadie @ Ubuntu Forums

Make sure your system is up to date.

In a terminal run the following commands.

Code: Select all
 sudo aptitude update


Code: Select all
 sudo aptitude upgrade


Next we will add the needed repository for E17 to our apt sources list.

In a terminal copy and past the following command.

Code: Select all
 sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list




There are two repositories available. Add one of the following repositories to the end of your apt sources list.

Code: Select all
 ## E17 repository "edevelop.org"
deb http://edevelop.org/pkg-e/ubuntu edgy e17
deb-src http://edevelop.org/pkg-e/ubuntu edgy e17


Code: Select all
 ## E17 Repository "e17.dunnewind.net"
deb http://e17.dunnewind.net/ubuntu edgy e17
deb-src http://e17.dunnewind.net/ubuntu edgy e17


Save and close gedit.

Add the key.

Code: Select all
 wget http://lut1n.ifrance.com/repo_key.asc


Code: Select all
 sudo apt-key add repo_key.asc


Install Enlightenment E17

Code: Select all
 sudo aptitude update


Code: Select all
 sudo aptitude install e17


Log out of Gnome. Select session in your log in manager. Enlightenment should be listed. Select Enlightenment as your session, log in and enjoy the eye candy.

Hi Clem,

Here is a video link http://enlightenment.sourceforge.net/Enlightenment/Screenshots/files/_files/e17_video.avi

And

A link to some screen shots. http://www.enlightenment.org/Enlightenment/Screenshots/

Lots of screen shots here. (scroll to lower half of page) http://www.cuddletech.com/e17/

oh no, I meant under Linux Mint :) If we move this howto to the wiki it'd be nice to show some screenshots.

I don't have a fix for the w-lan under enlightenment but I have a work around. Log into gnome and make your connection. Log out and start an enlightenment session.

The wireless connection will hold through the process.

Enlightenment Rocks!

oh i see... truly a great DE with no w-lan-plugin available?! :roll: (no means to offend, but loging in and out of gnome to connect to w-lan seems a little complicated for me)

now seriously: I would really like to have a closer look at E17, but not without proper w-lan working and unfortunately I won't find the time to test it during next weeks.

perhaps one could try installing the "wifi-radar" and connecting to the w-lan using the application via command-line?!

Besides, could you give further explanations why you think E17 "rocks"?
AFAIK E17 is faster than other DE, but that is all I can tell for now, so I would be happy to hear some more advantages/goodies about it.
