E17 now available in Entropy

To get it installed do this:

as root in a terminal:
equo update


edit /etc/entropy/packages/package.unmask
add into this file:



equo install dev-libs/eina dev-libs/eet x11-libs/evas x11-libs/ecore dev-libs/embryo media-libs/edje dev-libs/efreet x11-libs/e_dbus x11-wm/enlightenment

Now e17 is installed and you can enjoy it by selecting “enlightenment” from the sessions menu in the login screen.

    s’OK, I used Portage to merge equo and entropy and then it worked. I had used equo install equo entropy spritz to make sure I had the latest versions but got the error message I mentioned in the previous Comment. equo search told me I had latest versions but I have just checked with eix, which told me I didn’t, so I merged them via Portage and now equo install with the list of E17 packages now works.

    that error has nothing todo with E17, it might be a bug in Entropy.

    This is great. I am a long time Elive tester and love e17.I love sabayon though because it works brilliantly with almost any hardware config.Combination of the 2 has to be perfection.Just one small problem (e17 installed perefectly by the way) is that e17 normal network manager does not have the abilities of gnome/sabayons and cannot connect wirelessly as does not read wpa 1 or 2 encryption. Can some tell me in simple terms how to add an elive repo to spritz (ie. repo address) so that I can download e17 module for exalt connection manager as wicd package under sabayon hasn’t installed correctly and I know it should work under e17. I.m plobably short of dependencies for wicd.Sabayon network Manager is showing in e17 but there i no module available to hook up that last bit of the connection!!!Kindest regardszen master

    @revjames I’m aware that not everything (e.g. allot of modules) are not available in entropy at this moment. Due some depends against imlib2 i need to wait until after sabayon 4.1 K releases before i go and break things.

    UPDATE ON PREVIOUS POSTApologies. Gnomes network manager does work in the background of e17 it’s just you can’t tell that its connected.As I recall from elive the lack of a desktop wireless signal gadget/monitor was always a bit of an issue.Did’t mean to offend or cause problems and am very grateful for the wm.Kind Regards.

    Joost Ruis wrote: "that error has nothing todo with E17, it might be a bug in Entropy."Yup, I know.Anyway, after getting past that little puzzle E17 works quite nicely, so many thanks for uploading it to the Entropy repo.When I switched back to KDE 3.5.10 several things were broken (Control Centre and Home icons missing from K Menu Favourites; KDE Keyboard Tool missing from Panel; all icons missing in K Menu > Applications and sub-menus; settings:/ empty in Konqueror; etc.) and I had to re-install the following packages to get these back: kcontrol, kmenuedit, kxkb, kdebase-kioslaves). I think that's about it. Note sure yet if anything else is broken in KDE 3.5.10. Some GNOME icons that were there before in the K Menu > Applications sub-menus are still missing. Any idea what is the easiest way to get these back? Thanks in advance.

    I just used the K Menu menu editor for each missing GNOME icon. There were only a few missing.
