    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
    How do I add it to the end of that though? Also, when I put that command I get
    Code:
    sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found

    I'm presuming you have apt installed ...

    Wben doing the minimal install it is always a good idea to research then make a list of what you are going to need installed prior to beginning. You can then install everything as part of the process. This includes essential stuff, like apt, and apps you use regularly. You will also need gcc somewhere along the line.

    Just a note...

    Jeff Hoogland over at Bodhi Linux gave some instructions (I think) about how to install E17 in Ubuntu. Bodhi Linux 2.0 uses E17 and is based on Ubuntu 12.04.

    You might have to dig around bodhilinux.com a bit to find it.

    Thank you for your straightforward answer, a rare thing to find on linux help forums... I will begin my search once I get off work. Until then, I will have to settle with Bodhi.

    Code:
    sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found
    That is wrong command.It should be

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hannes-janetzek/enlightenment-svn
    EDIT: You can try Bodhi linux if you want.E17 is very well integrated there.

    the command add-apt-repository is not included in the mini install

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hannes-janetzek/enlightenment-svn
    sudo apt-get update
