Looking nice. Do people use this gui on a regular basis. Is it stable yet?

I uses e17 everyday on my z, but I am not using pdaxrom any more so I can not speech for how stable the newer updates are, but when I ran pdaxrom everyday(about a month) with e17 it worked great. I only really uses vim, xcalc and xmms when I was using pdaxrom. I have been trying to get equate working for my calculator, exhibit for images and eclair working as my media play but I have not got that working yet. I may have to try pdaxrom again, I just wished that gefechtsdienst provided an sl6k installer.

installed E17 as my default windows manager

since i am using beta4 as the kernel, i change the .xinitrc a little bit as follows: -

CODE
#!/bin/sh
#
# Very simple session manager for enlightenment
#
test -e /proc/power_key_off && echo "0" > /proc/power_key_off 2> /dev/null

if [ -e /etc/profile ]; then
   . /etc/profile
fi

exec scim &

if [ ! -d $HOME/Choices/common ]; then
       mkdir -p $HOME/Choices/common
fi

if [ ! -d $HOME/Choices/lightnpower.cfg ]; then
       lightnpower.py --loadandquit
fi

if [ -f /usr/bin/gconfd-2 ]; then
   /usr/bin/gconfd-2 15 &
fi


HARDWARE=`cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep 'Hardware' | cut -d':' -f2 | cut -d' ' -f3`
echo "pdaXrom [${HARDWARE}]"

test -f /etc/X11/kb/${HARDWARE}/xmodmap && xmodmap /etc/X11/kb/${HARDWARE}/xmodmap

test -f /etc/X11/kb/userdefined.xmodmap && xmodmap /etc/X11/kb/userdefined.xmodmap

test -f /usr/bin/chkhinge && /usr/bin/chkhinge 2>/dev/null >/dev/null

enlightenment 2>/dev/null

test -e /proc/power_key_off && echo "1" > /proc/power_key_off 2>/dev/null


let's have some screen captures , and this can also support SCIM, as shown.... ph34r.gif

yes... size can be edited...

for 'hiding', you can change the fashion of maximizing a window by covering the tool bar... (i.e. full-screen maximization...)

Like the fool that I am I tried umans e17 pdaX installer which gives you an option

"Shall I remove the Matchbox Desktop?"

ans I said yes, only to discover e17 is buggier than I expected. Its an old build of pre-alpha software- what else could I expect?

Why does the installer give this option at all? Why does it need to totally remove matchbox instead of backing up the config files for it, replacing those and leaving matchbox well alone. At least that should be an option.

Could I restore my matchbox setup by installing a few packages? I backed up my .xinitrc and startx files?

EDIT

Thankfully I've got my matchbox setup back now- of course it was simply a case of just looking at the packages removed by setup.sh and manually re-installing them all after restoring my old startx and .xinitrc. I still don't understand why that was neccessary, removing matchbox.

I just followed uman's online instructions, which puts e17 as the system scope wm. Then I simply renamed my /home/root/.xinitrc to .xinitrc_matchbox. So I can always fall back to matchbox.

The latest e17 from uman is buggy, it often segfaults for me after suspend/resume. Until one day I can't start e17 anymore. Now time to move on to another WM.

But thanks a lot for making e17 available. I will check back once a new version comes out.

the "remember" function is very useful to set the defaut windows size. However, same problem remains for configuration panels (e.g. options for thunderbird or firefox), huge windows that I can't handle/move at all on my tosa. Anybody know a WM can properly handle those?

ice, xfce, and I think fvwm. Nonje are perfect, I think maybe the firefox prefs don't shrink...have to slide 'em around w/ alt.

I really liked xfce on tosa, though 'cus you can very easily make little network app buttons and so go up and down and change networks with a click

Hi

I've been trying to get some themes working by downloading them to the .e/e/themes folder... but they never show on the list of themes in the menu, just the default. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
It could be run on a Zaurus c750 (with a SD card 1Go)?
