    HOWTO: Install and tweak E17 Enlightenment

    NOTE: 1(and maybe more) of the mentioned repositories doesn't exist at this current time.


    QUICK AND DIRTY E17 HOWTO


    Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

    Code:
    deb http://soulmachine.net/debian unstable/
    Add the following lines to /etc/apt/preferences
    (If this file doesn`t exist, create it.)
    (Don't know how necessary it is, but it worked for me.)

    Code:
    Package: enlightenment
    Pin: version 0.17.0_pre10*
    Pin-Priority: 999
    
    Package: enlightenment-data
    Pin: version 0.17.0_pre10*
    Pin-Priority: 999
    Create a file called e17.desktop in /usr/share/xsessions/
    Add the following lines to this file:

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Name=e17
    Comment=
    Exec=enlightenment
    Icon=
    Type=Application
    Using synaptic, install the following packages:

    Code:
    enlightenment        0.17.0_pre10-0cvs20050216
    enlightenment-data    0.17.0_pre10-0cvs20050216
    eutils            0.0.1-0cvs20050215
    E17 should now be available as a session from the gnome login screen.

    Once in E17, the following commands are useful:

    Code:
    enlightenment_remote -module-load flame    - Loads the flame module. :D
    enlightenment_remote -module-load snow    - Loads the snow module.
    e17setroot -s <imagename>        - Loads image, and scales to backdrop.
    (type e17setroot on it's own for other options)
    Once you have loaded a few backgrounds to test with, you can select them easily using the emblem E17 background selection tool, as all .eet files created with e17setroot are automatically stored in $HOME/.e/e/background/
    (Just type emblem in the terminal)

    This is a great resource.

    Hope this helps, apologies for any errors.
