E17 heading towards a Stable Release

http://jeffhoogland.blogspot.ca/2012...elease-no.html

Umm, must install E17. Been procrastinating too long!

forgot to mention that "the other side" (Ubuntu) has a PPA with the SVN releases

Re: E17 heading towards a Stable Release

Will their be a f17 spin? or possibily f18? I mean I love bodhi linux but but it's based on an old ubuntu release. That's where I first tried it. and it is an accelerated enviroment that I didn't have problems with my driver.

Re: E17 heading towards a Stable Release

I think Bodhi are working on a new release based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. No idea about Fedora. Seems Bodhi only uses (so far anyway) LTS releases.

Re: E17 heading towards a Stable Release

It is not available for F16 at the moment through the normal repos, but is being built here: http://www.fedora.md/

I make no claims other than that, though. Caveat emptor.

Repo page: http://repo.fedora.md/

The latest google-chrome offers to translate foreign web pages.

The repo pages are in English, I think. Otherwise, go to Google>translate> (Plug the URL in the box there.) and presto! Translated!

Re: E17 heading towards a Stable Release

Lol, I didn't know google chrome did that yet. Is it the stable, or unstable release or is it an addon app? I knew google did, so I was kinda stating the obvious I guess. Just didn't use it in awhile and last time I used it they were still bugs. Anyways the reason I didn't want to just download it from the repos, is I like reading the release notes and what not before I do any install. I want to know the problems and bugs, so I know what to expect. I find knowledge is power, and in linux this is even more true then other operating systems where their is all kinds of tech support for the average user. Linux is not for idiots never has been.

Re: E17 heading towards a Stable Release

I've been playing around with the SVN version of E17 (In Kubuntu) and although it's blazingly fast, I have a few niggles with it. It doesn't remember some setting between log-ins, especially fonts and mouse cursor. I've set a left-handed pointer using LXAppearance and have to reset it each time. I also can't set my own wallpaper as it throws up an error: "enlightenment couldn't import the picture because of conversion errors"

I really haven't got the time or energy to troubleshoot the problems and KDE "just works"

Hmmmm.

You must not be holding your mouth right. <....>

I've had none of those kinds of issues. Solid as a rock here.

Re: E17 heading towards a Stable Release

I *think* the entry may be wrong in the log-in screen (KDE) but it's been so long since I've had to edit anything by hand I've forgotten what to do

Edit: Nope, it's correct...

Re: E17 heading towards a Stable Release

Well, that's solved the problem of the wallpaper not loading. A critical file was missing from my install. Installed libedje.bin and almost all is right in my little world again!

Now to fix the mouse pointer!

Edit: I wonder what else is missing!

Re: E17 heading towards a Stable Release

I installed E17 last night on my netbook to try it again, and somehow, it's alot better than it was even a couple months ago when I last tried it.

Not only that, it seems smoother and faster than Openbox on this machine(?!). Is this even possible?
