I tried this how-to last night and it's great to have a thrilling new
But I couldn't download the source from sourceforge, so I tried the
other one listed on the official site of enlightenment and this one is
supposed to be the most updated (synchronized every 30 min).
Everything compiles and installs well except emotion which doesn't
make successfully due to something related to libxine (I guess). But
that's not a big issue if we have other media player.
Thanks to the related posts on Ubuntu forum ("enlightened gnome"), I
added Enlightenment.desktop to /usr/share/xsessions/ and in this way,
enlightenment appears as a choice in the login sessions.
"Enlightened gnome" also offers a way to make enlightenment as default
wm for gnome and it also worked on my machine. This is nice because I
can get acess to all the gnome menus. There must be a way to customize
the enlightenment menu, but I guess at this stage I have to do it by
dealing with configuration files directly. It would be great if a GUI
is available for adding/removing applications and etc. (Please tell me
if you know. thanks). If so, I will leave gnome.
Enlightenment is really the "ultimate" eye candy, but also very fast.
