    Installing Ubuntu Mini with e17

    In my quest to built a personally optimized OS, I have decided to give Ubuntu Mini a try! For this, I will be going with 64bit 12.04.

    Installation is a breeze. I then log into the Ubuntu command prompt and immediately
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    After that, I am unable to figure out what to do next, after trying many webpages of tutorials. Do I need to install anything important for the system before installing e17 so I can start using my computer?

    As for installing e17, I tried following the instructions on this website (https://launchpad.net/~hannes-janetz...filter=precise) for Precise Pangolin 12.04. The site states to input and this results from the first entry:
    Code:
    deb: command not found
    I think I can get programs in the terminal on my own once I get the machine working, for now, I just need help being able to use my machine in e17 desktop.

    Also, I figured I should put
    Code:
    wget http://ppa.launchpad.net/hannes-janetzek/enlightenment-svn/ubuntu precise main

    When you say the mini do you mean you are attempting a Ubuntu minimal install using the mini.iso??? As in this:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...tion/MinimalCD

    If not, then that will let you do a really custom install.

    Yes, now do you know how to fix this deb issue?

    Re: Installing Ubuntu Mini with e17

    What have you already installed? Anything to deal with deb files?

    You need to write a list of everything you are going need and start installing. Easiest would be to start with Synaptics:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install synaptics
    ... and a desktop environment, unless you are intending to run wholly from the terminal. I use Xfce:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xfce4
    I would deal with the essentials before bothering with third-party repos. Those deb lines go into your software sources, not a terminal, per se.

    Well... I am installing e17 as my post title suggests, not Xfce.

    Well, all good then. Use whatever package manager that uses and start installing what you need.

    Yes, that is what I am trying to figure out. Can anyone help me do this for e17?

    Once I hit those deb inputs I get that error as suggested earlier... This is my problem.

    Like I said, those lines don't go in a terminal. You need to put them in sources.list, if that exists. I know nothing of E17. Is that a desktop environment or a full OS?

    e17, full name Enlightenment version 17, is a lightweight desktop environment.


    As for those deb lines, like Bucky Ball suggested, put them at the end of /etc/apt/sources.list . But they provide a PPA, so don't go through the pain of manually editing the file and do this:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hannes-janetzek/enlightenment-svn
