    HOWTO: E17 using apt and Smoon's repo

    NOTE: Smoon is no longer maintaining his E17 repository. See this thread for a smiliar method using the repository provided by Elive (note that it's not necessary to modify libc6, and this repo can simply be used as a drop-in for Smoon's. Some of the install names have changed, however.)

    Because the other thread is a mess :p

    This HOWTO describes the simple process of installing Enlightenment DR17 & related utilities using our own Smoon's excellent apt repository. Thanks Smoon!

    First, add Smoon's repository to your apt sources.list:
    Code:
    $ sudo echo "deb http://ubuntu.nooms.de/ hoary/" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    Next, create and open the apt preferences file:
    Code:
    $ sudo gedit /etc/apt/preferences
    and tell it to prefer the latest version of Enlightenment:
    Code:
    Package: enlightenment
    Pin: version 0.16.999.*
    Pin-Priority: 999
    
    Package: enlightenment-data
    Pin: version 0.16.999.*
    Pin-Priority: 999
    Update apt:
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get update
    and install!
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install enlightenment eutils
    The install should automatically create a new .desktop file in /usr/share/xsessions, so you can now log into E17 from your regular login manager. Log out, log into E, and enjoy!


    Optionally, you can also install extra EFL programs & E modules. For more information on these, see the Get-E user guide.
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install emodules engage entrance eclair elicit entice examine eclips
    emodules - These add functionality and eye-candy to the Enlightenment desktop outside of those included in E.
    engage - An OSX-style dock.
    entrance - Login manager.
    eclair - Media player.
    elicit - Magnifier/color dropper.
    entice - Image viewer.
    examine - Configuration utility.
    eclips - Another image viewer.

    Two other popular EFL-based utilities, the Eterm terminal emulator and Evidence file manager, can be installed by other means.
    Eterm is in Hoary Universe and can be installed via apt. See How to add extra repositories.
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install Eterm
    To get Evidence, download the Hoary .deb from sourceforge and install using dpkg:
    Code:
    $ sudo dpkg -i evidence_0.9.8-20050305-hoaryGMW_i386.deb
    For Enlightenment themes, backgrounds, and more visit Get-E.org and the Edevelop forum.

    Re: HOWTO: E17 using apt and Smoon's repo

    Package entrance is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    i get that error when trying to install entrance. every package but this is there and installs with no problems.

    and i was on get-e.org and it said to add

    Package: enlightenment
    Pin: version 0.17.0_pre10*
    Pin-Priority: 999

    Package: enlightenment-data
    Pin: version 0.17.0_pre10*
    Pin-Priority: 999
    to /etc/apt/preferences file. but has diff repos links to use. gonna try that out and see if it makes a diff.

    Thanks Tab, for that great Howto. I was thinking about writing one myself but was too lazy

    thagame and everyone else: Don't follow the instructions found at get-e.org or anywhere else that tell you about "Shadoi's repository" or entries like "Pin: version 0.17.0_pre10*" in /etc/apt/preferences! They are refering to the repository for Debian SID, which will NOT work with Ubuntu!
    Use the instructions posted by Tab on top of this thread - this is the only way to get Ubuntu packages of e17, its tools and libraries.

    thagame, there's no entrance package yet. Only the programs Tab referred to in his Howto are in the repository. I may create a package if you _really_ need entrance though.

    Does the engage available here load as a module in e17 or is it a standalone application?

    It includes both, the standalone version of engage and the e17 module which can be loaded via
    Code:
    enlightenment_remote -module-load engage

    I don't think any of us really NEED any of the E17 stuff considering it is pre-alpha software, but it sure is nice to have new stuff to play with.

    btw thanks for the repository

    Yeah, that's exactly why I created the repository: I like to play with new and fancy stuff. I don't use e17 yet and I don't think I'll use it anytime in the future since it's all much too complicated to use. I really like simplicity and that's why I've chosen Gnome to be my desktop of choice.

    Thanks smoon. The last time I used a repo, engage was standalone only and the modular version is much better integrated and doesn't use fake transparency (I think) .. I ended up compiling the whole thing
    Nice to have a repository!
