That is one of my main gripes, it use to show all apps...they could at least have a option.

The apps that are minimised (or inconified) are placed in IBox, isn't that's supposed to be that function? You can remove it (IBox) if you want.

it's my lack of knowledge about e17. i thought it was a taskbar utility that shows all running apps. what should i install for that?

You are thinking of the Ibar, and it only shows apps that are installed and have put in it.

There is a taskbar module for e17, should come with a stock install. It just has to activated. There is also a 3rd party one on offer @ Exchange

How would I go about loading KNetworkManager on startup given it has the credentials?

The taskbar module is pretty good. I just wish I could get it to just show the icon of the application

Isn't that an applet from KDE (network-manager-kde)?

You simply click on the e menu, go to:
Configuration > Configuartion panel > Applications > IBar Applications
From the 'All Applications' add KNetworkManage to 'Selected Applications' and click on 'Apply'.

Or for startup apps, you could put it in a startup script file like ~/.xinitrc (or ~/.xsession) or make up your own as I did for a few startup apps like xbindkeys.

Note for others:

At the beginning when you first start up E17, it give you options to select one of several menus like Debian menu, kde menu, gnome menu etc, languages, the type of desktop (minimalist, standard, etc). So make a backup of your old ~/.e directory and start E17 with a clean set.

I only discovered this new feature when I add in E17 from SVN.

Aye, me too, but I have a backup of my ~/.e folder. Then again, I've been bitten in the past.

here's a strange one:

When I run e17 (this is on my laptop), the temperature applet shows a temp around 71 degrees celsius. I then end the e17 session, run KDE for 20 minutes and then log back into e17. the temperature is 10 degrees lower.

i do know that i run kpowersave on kde. i don't think i have it in e17. could this be the difference. i can feel a marked difference on my lap when i run kde vs e17.

Fyi, there is an article in October issue of linux journal about E17, here's scan from that issue:

It doesn't seems to list it apart from being published by and registered as a trade name of Belltown Media, Inc. If you think that it isn't fair use, let me know so I can edit the post.

Publishing the entire article is a bit over the top and certainly not 'fair use'. However, they do publish their articles online after a while and then we can link to it.

I just recently did a netinst of sid and used this repo to install e17 today, and I must say what a delight using it.

Only problem is my fonts are small for the complete install. Any ideas on fixing this?

Thnx.


Fonts are set on 3 levels: Themes Level (etk fonts), gtk apps and in the wild.

The e17 menus, themes, modules & icons fonts require a change on theme and a re-compilation. Although some tweaking can be done on these. Have a look here, Main Menu>Configuration>Configuration Panel select Appearance>Fonts select Advanced, in the left panel scroll down to you find the Module section. Be sure to "enable fonts classes" is checked, then play round in there & see if anything is better.

So for generic gtk have a look in your ~/.gtkrc file and change the line gtk-font-name for your preferences (size and/or font type)

The ones in the wild, are ones that do not obey standardization (firefox or Ooffice) or from other DE toolkits (QT,tkl, ...)

For other, like firefox, you must go to 'Options' of each app (usualy under Preferences).

Cheers
