Alright... I downloaded the "easy_e17" build script and ran it, everything went fine until it tried to compile eclaire, here is the make output

Not sure what went wrong, has anyone else experienced this problem in the past few days?

There are times when things don't compile, it's normal, use the -e switch to skip errors and continue.

As long as the libs and e compile, you're good to go.

I'm wondering if anyone know how do I pass the -dpi option to the X server with entrance as the default display manager? For example, if you have XDM or KDM as your display manager, you edit the value after -dpi in either /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers (for XDM) or /etc/kde3/kdm/Xservers for (for KDM).

I have entrance installed for the moment but I cannot seems to find the Xservers file for entrance.

I still have query regarding my post above, so if you have any suggestion please post.

Anyway, I just downloaded the new development release of Elive, you can get it from elivecd.org or from the frontpage of distrowatch.com.

This liveCD is really nice, even their mozilla broswer from which I'm writing this post from is Iceweasel 2.0.0.1 with dropdown menus for elive, enlightenment, debian, GNU/Linux, multimedia and misc. This is the kind of feature that the debian iceweasel team should put on for later release.

The twinkling star effect on the desktop background is novel enough to impress my colleague. There are a lot of features in this elive CD and it works well on my low end PII machine.

Edit: Screenshot of elive LiveCD on my desktop

@garrincha: Why don't you just disable the other login managers at
startup using a tool like sysv-rc-conf? That's how I did it with SLiM login
manager. Just disabled GDM and made a script that loads SLiM. As I
didn't know which runtime I should start it, I just copied the script to
the rc*.d folders in the same way GDM was started.

Thanks canci, actually I didn't bother with my original query as I fixed the fonts problem. FYI, I don't have any other login manager other than entrance.

I think I am the only person on the planet who doesn't like the Enlightenment WM. While it is beautiful and fast as hell, I thought it was a bit disorganized. That's why I love GNOME--- everything is neat and tidy and simple.

Still, if you're looking for eye-candy, Enlightenment certainly delivers the goods.

GNOME is like a steak - easy to fry but a myriad of callories.
Enlightenment is more like salad - it needs some extra chopping and
slicing but in the end it's very light but still nutritious. :)

Comparing other lightweight WMs Enlightenment is way easier to set up
than eg. Fluxbox.

BTW, I managed to compile e17 on Sarge! Yay me! 8)
When I first tried compiling it, I took the option to make deb packages,
which then for some strange reason wouldn't install and claim to be
missing dependencies. The usual ./configure && make && make install
works, that is unless you stick to building e17 only.
I couldn't get entrance as imlib2 wouldn't compile on my machine.
It was however no dependeny error. Don't remember it though...

you think? :lol:

I think I like about every de/wm I have tried - just some I like better. Tried XFCE for like the tenth time and I so far I have stuck with it a week and now I am really liking it, a lot!

I used this repository for my etch setup to install e17:

deb http://edevelop.org/pkg-e/ubuntu dapper e17

It worked just fine, I had tried a couple of other ones, which seemed to be dead, so I tried this one and it worked perfect.

E17 has come a long way, it shaping up to be really nice.

It is not advisable to use Ubuntu repositories with Debian. They are not compatible. Sure, you might get away with some things but it is not recommended. Besides, there is a repo for Debian already.
Code: Select all
deb http://www.edevelop.org/debian etch main

OR
Code: Select all
deb http://www.edevelop.org/debian unstable main

I can only imagine what sort of entertainment you might find if you were to actually mix the repositories.
