Do not do this if you had previously installed by any other way including the old version in the Ubuntu repository. Any previously installed version must be purged prior to this. In a terminal:
Code: Select all
apt-get install e17 libedje-bin
That's it - the basic no frills E17. When you log in to the Enlightenment session the first time there will be a few setup screens. I found the default size a little smallish and choose the next one up. If your compatible graphics card is detected you will be notified and no further action required - otherwise you are stuck with software rendering.
Disclaimer: Anything you do based on this information would be at your own risk. If Enightenment eats your food, drinks all the beer in the fridge, and sleeps with your girlfriend I'm not responsible.
Edited to reflect the instructions for the E17 stable release of 12.22.12
