OK

who knows how to configure e17 without X?

I tried running Xnest while chrooted but e17 wont start via command

enlightenment_start

specifically

Code:
Xnest -ac :2 &
and then I did in e17 chroot terminal
Code:
env DISPLAY=":2" enlightenment_start &
and it just says no such file,etc?

its in /opt so pretty weird place huh?

any ideas on how to start e17 in Xnest
or how to setup e17 desktop,etc without X??
thanks

OH
heres some pics of the livecd I made with script
the pics are what happens when it boots to desktop
e17 must be configured first...

I was thinking of trying the full path to the executable.
Something like /opt/e17/bin/enlightenment_start.
I take it you tried that already?.

If the command is not in your chroot, you can use
Code:
chroot NEWROOT [COMMAND [ARGS]...]

yeah I did

I tried many combos

like youra and all kinds of stuff
damn it

I mean the CD works as is so not a issue
but I would like to have e17 fully configed before making into iso?

I also noticed when I ran the script a moment ago and just added e17 and gdm, etc
and added the
Code:
chroot squashfs-root/ easy_e17.sh -u

chroot squashfs-root/ easy_e17.sh -u -only=etk_extra esmart enhance exml imlib2 edb edje_editor edje_player edje_viewer emotion entrance eclair evfs evolve elicit elitaire emphasis empower engycad entrance_edit_gui entropy ephoto estickies expedite exquisite extrackt engage enthrall exalt exalt-client exhibit rage drawer emu flame moon news penguins rain snow language photo efm_path efm_nav e_phys mpdule notification b_and_w
it made a bad iso
so maybe no easy_e17.sh prior to making iso?

for the Xnest stuff I was referring here for Debian
from the 2nd post
http://www.debe17.com/web_pages/dean...apr08.php.html

specifically
Quote:
Now you can start the graphical environment in the xnest window.
if you have e17 installed then start it with the following command
Code:
env DISPLAY=":2" enlightenment_start &
so, I dont know?

from here:
http://cafelinux.org/OzOs/content/op...ebian-gnulinux

check if its in the path:
Code:
OzOs-debian:/# cat /etc/profile | grep "/opt/e17/bin"
PATH="/opt/e17/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"
PATH="/opt/e17/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games"
if not:
Code:
sed -i "s/PATH=\"/PATH=\"\/opt\/e17\/bin\:/g" /etc/profile
i run into that kind of trouble too, but only now and then.
not sure why (on a usual install on hard-disk, not from xnest).
i could solve it but i don`t know how anymore...lol.


there is a tool called enlightenment_remote. as i don`t know about it and ain`t got interest in learning it you may ask at cafelinux.org.
perhaps someone might tell you (from what i know i don`t think it really is what you want. it ain`t big fun. lol)

for such purposes going the repo way might be more easy.


ps:i did install and configure enlightenment from xnest and live-helper, so it is possible.

good luck

Lovin e17 Dude
never saw a WM like this one
still have much to learn...

I call it an alpha cause you gotta setup e17 yourself
i tried configuring it, but it either freakered out or came up at boot with initial e17 setup

now, the iso offered lets you start with the default e17 scheme
but other themes and wallpapers are in there

try it out
and you can re-run the setup from e17 module load menu

it installs just like reg ubuntu

I'm making a Debian Live 503 one now dude
much harder in a way cause ubuntu looks out for depends,etc more

yes, its great, and i`m far from knowing all its configurations or modules...

mhh, its just an idea, and i never did it:
you can`t run it, configure it, save /home/user/.e somewhere and put it into the final iso?
perhaps.

but, its quite a dumb question as i know you build iso`s day in and out, you did create a user after chroot, yes? sorry for this question.

as said: i would try the repos and ask at cafelinux for help.

i will check your iso and let you know.

Oh

I had to use Xnest as root to setup /root
I then transferred most of that, notably
.mozilla, .e, .subversion, and some other folders
to

/etc/skel
etc/skel populates /home/$NAME
then you gotta chown all of etc/skel before mksquashfs'n it

Code:
chroot squashfs-root/ chown -R root:root /etc/skel/
chroot squashfs-root/ chown -R root:root /etc/skel/*
chroot squashfs-root/ chown -R root:root /etc/skel/.*
just to make sure,LOL

anyway, no, no users setup
its the default ubuntu livecd with e17

note that there is no Gnome desktop, just e17...

how do you login if you only got root?
as (default)- user with autologin or as root?
i would try adding a user.

but:i had that problem too, as said, so it might be something completely different.
