I have ubuntu Lucid installed in a virtualbox vm with guest utils addon installed. everything works great, but I wanted to try e17 since I've heard so many great things about it.
I used a thread on these forums to install from svn, and after a couple hours mucking with dependencies I finally got it installed.
I created the e17.desktop file and it shows up in gdm, but when I try to log in to e17, I get a flickering screen and it crashes back to gdm.
I haven't yet tried starting it from command line because I can't figure out how to completely kill gdm and the x server. CTL ALT BACKSPACE seems to have been deprecated/disabled.
Any help y'all can provide will be appreciated, and if you need further information I'll be happy to provide it.
