Any Enlightenment users here?

I recently decided to give Enlightenment 17 a spin on my laptop, and for the most part I’m very happy with it, though I did run into a couple stability issues. It had a very difficult time copying data to a USB (it would say it was done when it wasn’t, then the data would end up being corrupted), but users on the mailing list said that this was likely a problem that could be fixed by running “sync” to flush the filesystem buffers; when I close my laptop lid to suspend it, the time will be wrong when I open it again until I restart Enlightenment; and trying to use the file manager’s video preview crashes my computer, so I installed Thunar and use that now instead.

Despite these problems, I still like the customizability it offers, so I’ll be sticking with it for a while.

Feel free to post solutions to the problems listed above, customization tips and/or tricks, and anything else you feel might be useful to openSUSE Enlightenment users.

Hello and welcome here.

Before this thread turns into a mess of different answers to the several questions you ask, or (what is also possible) before it triggers no answer at all, please note the following.

My idea is that you will have more chance to get help when you start your questions in seperate threads for each question/problem, with good titles like:
. “No save detach of USB storage devices in Enlightment”
. “Time wrong after suspend using Enlightment”
. " …" (more?)

That will lure more people to your real problems then the very vague “Any Enlightment users here”, where one might think “yes”, or “no”, or “don’t know”, but will not take the trouble to open your thread for giving such a dumb answer.

Ands yes, tellling what version of openSUSE you use is wanted in all of those threads.

I have Enlightenment (E17) installed. Must say though I merely took a quick glance at it, never used it in the way I’ve used GNOME, KDE, LXDE, i.e. as a production environment/heavy user.

You don’t say which openSUSE version.

It may be a problem with the file manager you use.

Possibly.

We usually like a problem per report here, not a mixture of several.

Anyway, when I hibernate with XFCE, the desktop applet time is incorrect
right after wake up, but I believe it is correct in the system itself.
After a bit, the time corrects itself. I just observed this yesterday.

Again, that’s a different issue :slight_smile:
