    Question Enlightenment Distro

    I've been looking into Enlightenment, since my low-end system has a hard time running KDE, and I just want to try Enlightenment. There are some Ubuntu repositories that I need in my distro, so what Ubuntu-based distros include Enlightenment as their desktop and have enlightenment packages instead of GNOME or KDE ones? I've found Elbuntu, which seems good, but I can't find a download link anywhere, so what other Ubuntu distros use E17 and use Enlightenment programs?

    I have tried the E17 package in the software center on 11.10 and one of two PPAS that I know of on 11.04 . Bodhi Linux is Ubuntu based and if you have the space and time check it out. .http://bodhilinux.com/

    Elbuntu is dead and long gone.

    PrimeE17 - not worth the download.
    Petite Linux - same...

    ExLight (latest Ubuntu with old E17):
    Compiling E17 from svn code is a much better option...

    Elive is no longer being developed (or so it seems) - it used to be the best.

    Bodhi Linux is the most up-to-date "enlightened" distro.
    Beautiful themes and user-friendly experience.
    Lean and fast. Probably your best bet.

    Re: Enlightenment Distro

    For historical reasons, I would like an .iso of Elbuntu. My only Live CD can't boot and I don't remember trying it when I've downloaded it...
    Is there someone to upload it for me? I'll appreciate.

    Bodhi Linux 2.1.0 is a really good Ubuntu that runs Enlightenment as it's desktop with many themes and a basic/fast install for you to build on...

    Enlighenment is in the package e17. You could install that and thus run Enlightenment while still running Ubuntu.
