without further investigation i havent got an idea neither.
i was hoping i could su ubuntu, but no chance.

i added a user and as you can see here:
e in xnest
i could enlightenment_start and do some configuration.
but thats not what you want and all that autologin is beyond me. i`m happy if i`m able to disable it ...sorry.

yeah
just make a user

I didnt setup user, as with reg Ubuntu.
that way the end user can set it up

I finished the lenny one last night
works better than the ubuntu one

note that i used my own 503box live rc2 iso
http://multidistro.com/downloads/current/current.html

and its already got fluxbox,etc so now it has e17 too
and its already got user "guest" so very easy

so, you got any improvements for script??

OH
did you notice that the ubuntu e17 is fully ubuntu compliant?
ubuntu boot and etc?

it'll go on usb persistent with unetbootin/usb-creator

no, i`m a barbar. i use e17 as my window-manager, and thats it (i barely use its modules, etc). lol.

i have said it before and i think you are doing it that way (from your shots): the OzOs-script has tweaked the easy_e17.sh in a nice way.
you may update your svn-version and have got a backup (or several) of your running svn-version, you get informed about updates (well: they are daily anyway) and what not.

when not using a repo i use the OzOs-script, and, as i run debian, use this how-tow by Bro.Tiag:
http://cafelinux.org/OzOs/content/op...ebian-gnulinux
But i also used the very same how-to to put e17 from source on Linux-Mint, Antix and Ubuntu
(just to check if it works).
i do it as simple as:
Quote:
put the OzOs-sources into my sources-list
apt-get install e17-svn
Thats it.Done.
perhaps add the OzOs look and feel
perhaps adapt the path
perhaps copy /etc/xdg/menus/debian-menu.menu to my home-folder .config/menu


here are some further info about e17 to be found:
http://debe17.com/
Recommendation->the complete list of OzOs-how-to`s:
http://cafelinux.org/OzOs/content/how-index
a few very easy tips to configure i have added here (but its outdated):
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=38422

ride the lightning

i got a question:
when following your link its the rc2 version, debian on more gas, correct?

Yes its the rc2 one

weird but when I unsquashed it and ran aptitude purge cups,etc
there was no dbus folder in var
so it freaked out and couldn t do some stuff

worried that something was up
(note that I installed my own rc2 to a partition
update/upgrade
then attempted to make e17 debian live from rc2 iso)

I simply copied my existing /var/dbus folder to squashfs-root/var folder and whamo!
it worked

so, then I purged out some more stuff, opera, foomatic,qemu, k3b,etc
then mksquashed it

put it on usb and put persistent live-rw on a partition(cause usb persistent is slow when live-rw is on usb...)
and booted it up
set up desktops,etc for both root and user guest

this is whats cool too; sometimes I have issues with permissions when messing with /home,etc you know?
anyway
I tar.gz'd the contents of /home/guest and /root
put each in /root and /home/guest in squashfs-root
then su'd to user guest in chroot
su guest
cd /home/guest
tar -xvzf guest.tar.gz

and same with root
and no problems with rsync or permissions at boot
yo know I'm not a real coder so i had to find workaround
as sometimes when messing around in /home as root I would get "open files" and rsync errors at boot
not anymore

should I put stuff for user guest in /home or /etc/skel?
I think /etc/skel is used if you make new user, yes?

OH
Thanks for all that info dude
gonna go check that out now
