    Default How to arrange a nice e17-desktop in opensuse12.2

    first step:




    add the repo

    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/Enlightenment:/Nightly/openSUSE_12.2/

    to your system and download enlightenment/e17 with its dependencies

    Then you get a functionable e17, what does not look very nice, still a lot of features missing.

    Go to yast, open >software installing/removing, go to > "Anzeigen:Enlightenment:Nightly" (in german version) and mark ALL other not yet installed e-modules for install, you do not need the debug/devel-packages
    Do this, you get a black/white e17 desktop with mostly all functions
    To colour this up, in the repo are three e17-themes, you like to install them too.

    To tune your desktop, go to

    Bodhi Linux

    download the themes you like and copy them to

    /usr/share/enlightenment/data/themes

    in your opensuse-file-system

    Log out/in, all choosen themes are available in e17, choosing from menu >settings >themes

    To get a internet-connection, e17 plays with connmann/econnmann, what at least here does not work with a MobileBroadband3g-Modem.
    So I always logged first in to KDE, established connection with plasmoid-networkmanager, logged out and logged in to e17, connection has been alive.
    No more need to do this!
    I do not why, but here has been installed gnome-control-center (maybe when installing lxde-desktop here, gnome is not installed)
    You will find in e17menu >settings >system >configuration >network this nm-applet from gnome-desktop, which offers the airplane-modus, just choose "MobileBroadband", click "on" and you get connected, saved this in "favourite applications", so it is allways up by log-in

    What I miss, comparing to bodhilinux, is the possibility to mix themes, saying I got theme x, having icons from theme y and fonts from theme z. , looking for a workaround
    But that is not important, so happy, that e17 is working now with opensuse
    Only thing to claim is that the Y/Z-keyboard-strokes are on the contrary

    The link to download all themes from Bodhi seems dead.
    I downloaded all themes, which come as a .deb package. To extract them with not much hassle, copy all the .deb files you downloaded to one directory, then as root (you need that to copy stuff to /usr/share), go to that directory and run:
    for i in *deb ; do theme=`echo $i| sed -n 's/.deb//p'`; mkdir $theme; mv $i $theme; cd $theme; ar -xv $i ; tar xzf data.tar.gz ; cp usr/share/enlightenment/data/themes/* /usr/share/enlightenment/data/themes/ ; cd .. ; done
    You can then remove that directory.

    As for selecting specific things from each theme, just click the 'advanced' button on the settings editor and all is possible, requires a bit of patience though.

    You better check the factory repo (here is the 1-click install):
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...tenment-17.ymp

    The nightly is for heavy developement. It might brake and you won't have a system.
    I had that problem once.
    Tomas told me to install Factory.

    It would appear that on Dec 28, diamond gr did say:

    That's a nice touch... I had to add the repo by the URL that somebody posted
    on the enlightenment user mailing list...

    It might. Though it doesn't happen that often, and when/if it does, one only
    needs a backup window manager installed to avoid an unusable system. I simply
    installed the e16 package for that on my laptop where I've been running the
    Nightly repo for a few months now... And the biggest problem I had was when a
    "zypper up" gave me a new e17 version that wasn't compatible with my chosen
    theme...

    And I had 'that' problem with the factory repo I installed on my desktop to...

    Still if stability is more important than the "bleeding edge" to the OP, I'd
    have to agree with your recommendation. And to be sure, even the factory
    repo has more of the latest stuff than the E17 available from the repos
    of most the other distros I've checked lately... So unless the OP is in
    to compiling his/her own, then either way, opensuse has two of the best
    repos from which to get e17...

    Now in case the OP was thinking about themes when asking how to "arrange
    a nice e17-desktop" I'll mention that there is starting to be a collection
    of recompiled themes at e17-stuff.org...

    There are just a lot of proper opensuse-themes available, a lot of thanks to Agust Verdegal, king of enligtenment-themes!
    Have a look here:

    https://connect.opensuse.org/pg/foru...513/e17themes/

    You will find these themes also in e17/factory-repo for secure download via Yast2
    There is also a facebook-side related to opensuse/e17

    http://www.facebook.com/groups/opensuse.e17/

    A lot of movement the last weeks, very developing.

    Still not working is digikam, e17 simpy refuses to start it nor by menu nor in terminal, and gives a not documented failure-message, only to let you know.
    In KDE digikam starts automatically when I connect my digital-camera and shows me all stuff on it, that on the same system with opensuse12.2
    But that is the only thing to claim, right now.

    A nice weekend

    Thumbs up Re: How to arrange a nice e17-desktop in opensuse12.2

    Hi all, just to show how beautiful, fast and functional is e17 in openSUSE.
    We also take this opportunity to give credit to all appropriate team "opensuse.org / Enlightenment", especially Tomas Cech for the great work they are doing.
    Thanks!!!!




    Hope you like and enjoy e17!!!!

    I installed e17-desktop using the 1-click install. I logged out, but I see no option for e17? Only default, custom, KDE, failsafe, etc., but no e17. Am I missing something?
