-====== Using Enlightement DR17 with Slackware ====== 
  
-===== What is E17? ===== 
- 
-[[http://​www.enlightenment.org/​p.php?​p=about&​l=en | Enlightenment DR17]] (E17) is the long awaited successor of E16, a [[slackware:​window_manager|window manager]] which was distributed in Slackware 10 years ago. 
-It is classed as a "​desktop shell",​ providing the things you need to operate your desktop (or laptop), but not a whole suite of applications. This includes launching applications,​ managing their windows, and doing other system tasks like suspending, rebooting, managing files, etc. 
- 
-E17 doesn'​t come alone. Actually, it uses the [[http://​trac.enlightenment.org/​e/​wiki/​EFLOverview | Enlightenment Foundation Libraries]] (EFL) which can be used to develop other applications like in the Qt/KDE world for instance. There are, as in February 2013, 15 libraries in EFL and a lot of external modules or applications that can be used with E17. 
- 
-===== Installing E17 ===== 
- 
-==== Pre-built packages ==== 
- 
-=== SlackE17 === 
- 
-The easiest and fastest way to get E17 running on Slackware is to install the E17 packages from the [[http://​slacke17.sourceforge.net/​ | SlackE17 project]]. You just need to have the latest release of Slackware, Slackware64 or ArmedSlack. 
- 
-Just [[http://​sourceforge.net/​projects/​slacke17/​files/​slacke17/​ | download]] the tarball corresponding to your architecture (i486, x86_64 or ARM), unpack it and read the doc. To install the packages, you have several options: 
- 
-  * Install everything using: 
-<code bash># upgradepkg --install-new e17/​*.txz</​code>​ 
-  * Use the supplied script to install only E17 and its dependencies using: 
-<code bash># ./​slacke17-install.sh std</​code>​ 
-  * Use the supplied script to install everything using: 
-<code bash># ./​slacke17-install.sh max</​code>​ 
-  * Or you can just: 
-<code bash># cd e17 && pkgtool</​code>​ 
- 
-==== Compilation ==== 
- 
-First you need to install the dependencies needed to compile Enlightenment. These can be found in SlackBuilds-website or with sbopkg: 
- 
- * check 
- 
- * lua 
- 
- * luajit 
- 
- * bullet 
- 
- 
-Once you have those packages installed we can proceed to make a build directory and commence with the fun stuff! 
- 
-<code bash> 
- # mkdir -p /​build/​e22/​core 
- 
- # cd /​build/​e22/​core 
- 
- # git clone https://​git.enlightenment.org/​core/​efl.git 
- 
- # git clone https://​git.enlightenment.org/​core/​enlightenment.git 
- 
- # cd /​build/​e22/​core/​efl 
- 
- # ./​autogen.sh --prefix=/​opt/​e22 --disable-systemd --disable-avahi 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-Make symlink for dbus (installer tells you to do this so please check output if it has been updated just to be sure). 
-<code bash> 
- # ln -s /​opt/​e22/​share/​dbus-1/​services/​org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service /​usr/​share/​dbus-1/​services/​org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service 
- 
- # make && make install 
-</​code>​ 
- 
- 
-Now we need to add Enlightenment library directory to the system so it knows where to look for the libraries. 
-<code bash> 
- # echo "/​opt/​e22/​lib"​ >> /​etc/​ld.so.conf 
-</​code>​ 
- 
- 
-Load the new configuration. 
-<code bash> 
- # ldconfig 
-</​code>​ 
- 
- 
-An environmental variable need to be set for PKGCONFIG, this is only needed when building and doesnt need to be permanent. 
-<code bash> 
- # export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/​opt/​e22/​lib/​pkgconfig:/​usr/​lib64/​pkgconfig:/​usr/​share/​pkgconfig 
-</​code>​ 
- 
- 
-Add enlightenment bin to PATH for build, also make it persist after reboot. 
-<code bash> 
- # export PATH=/​opt/​e22/​bin:​$PATH 
- 
- # vi /​etc/​profile 
-</​code>​ 
-Add "/​opt/​e22/​bin"​ to your PATH. 
- 
- 
- 
-Start building Enlightenment. 
-<code bash> 
- # cd /​build/​e22/​core/​enlightenment 
- 
- # meson --prefix=/​opt/​e22 -Dsystemd=false -Davahi=false . build 
- 
- # meson configure build 
- 
- # ninja -C build install 
-</​code>​ 
- 
- 
-(Optional, build Terminology. Terminology is the default terminal in Enlightenment.) 
-<code bash> 
- # mkdir /​build/​e22/​apps 
- 
- # cd /​build/​e22/​apps 
- 
- # git clone https://​git.enlightenment.org/​apps/​terminology.git 
- 
- # cd terminology 
- 
- # meson --prefix=/​opt/​e22 . build 
- 
- # meson configure build 
- 
- # ninja -C build install 
-</​code>​ 
- 
- 
-To make your sessionmanager find Enlightenment you need to create a .desktop file in the right directory. 
-<code bash> 
- # vi /​usr/​share/​xsession/​enlightenment.desktop 
-</​code>​ 
- 
- 
-Should look something like this (please check already existing .desktop files for other language examples and please add relevant lines for your language): 
- 
-<code bash> 
-[Desktop Entry] ​ 
- 
-Encoding=UTF-8 ​ 
- 
-Type=XSession ​ 
- 
-Exec=/​opt/​e22/​bin/​enlightenment_start ​ 
- 
-TryExec=/​opt/​e22/​bin/​enlightenment_start ​ 
- 
-DesktopNames=Enlightenment ​ 
- 
-Name=Enlightenment ​ 
- 
-Comment[en_GB]=Enlightenment by Enlightenment 
- 
-Comment[sv]=Enlightenment av Enlightenment ​ 
- 
-X-KDE-PluginInfo-Version=0.22.9 
-</​code>​ 
- 
- 
-=== SlackE17 === 
- 
-SlackE17 provides all the source code and SlackBuilds in one tarball so you can rebuild everything easily. You can build the packages one by one, but it's more efficient to use the BUILD/​slacke17-build.sh script. You can pass some options to the script: 
- 
-  * To get debug symbols: 
-<code bash># DEBUG=1 ./​slacke17-build.sh</​code>​ 
-  * To optimize for your box: 
-<code bash># ECFLAGS="​-march=native -mtune=native"​ ./​slacke17-build.sh</​code>​ 
- 
-=== SBo === 
- 
-[[http://​slackbuilds.org | SBo]] provides SlackBuilds for EFL and E17, but you will have to download all the source code by yourself and build the packages one by one. 
- 
-===== Using E17 ===== 
- 
-You need to update your .xinitrc using xwmconfig and choosing xinitrc.e17. 
-Most of the configuration can be made by the right click menu. If you want to manage who can use the system menu, you should take a look at /​etc/​enlightenment/​sysactions.conf.
