Does anyone know how to install enlightenment in Ubuntu 10:04?
On the site below, is related to some versions, but do not have the 10.04. I use the Jaunty Jackalope, or is there another way?

It appears that there is a repo there for lucid there. Even though they claim to have Jaunty, Intrepid, and Hardy, the directory structure is actually Lucid, Karmic, and Jaunty. Did you try adding "deb http://packages.enlightenment.org/ubuntu lucid main extras" to your sources.list?

yes there is a repository for Lucidty. I will try and post the results here.

Was searching around on how to get e17 on 10.04 and found this thread. Figured I'd mention that adding the repo worked. Thanks.

Don't forget to download http://packages.enlightenment.org/repo.key

$cd Downloads
sudo apt-key add repo.key afterwards (I had to navigate to my downloads folder first).

I installed it but version is E16
(Added to sources --> added key --> downloaded using
sudo apt-get install e17)

How can I upgrade it to Version E17
Ubuntu 10.04
I also have Gnome and KDE
Is it advisable to have 3 desktop environment?

I'm using E17 in 11.04 , but according to the link the E17 packages for 10.04 have been deleted from the repository . E17 is a complete rewrite of E16 and in heavy development . I was able to install the core packages but I have no way to update them . I have been looking for a software source list but every thing I have found for Ubuntu is pre 10.04.http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/packages/show/188804

I could install E17. 'About Enlightenment' says version 16.99.

This is also the version found in Bodhi Linux, which uses Enlightenment as default desktop and will push latest updates into repos.
