Enlightenment problem


Ok, so I added enlightenment through the synaptics manager. It installed fine as did fluxbox and blackbox. However the problem I am having is when I boot up the only sessions I can choose is kde, gnome, blackbox, fluxbox, and failsafe. How can I add enlightenment to this. I have searched google but have not found much.

Most window managers install a .desktop file to /usr/share/xsessions. For instance, fluxbox installs /usr/share/xsessions/fluxbox.desktop. All graphical login managers in Debian check the /usr/share/xsessions directory to see which window managers are currently installed. If there's no .desktop file for enlightenment under /usr/share/xsessions, you can take a look at the other .desktop files there and then create one for enlightenment. After that, your login manager should give you the option to start enlightenment.

Freudian slip??

Don't do that. Try experimenting with the themes and perhaps have just one 3x3 virtual desktop.
