Enlightenment GUI


Hello all, I have recently come into contact with the Enlightenment interface and was absolute struck by how slick it was. Does anyone know of a decent distro that has this interface built in, I already tried ELIVE, but they won't let you install for free!!!

This is hardly scientific but I went to distrowatch and used their new "Search by included package" engine, and searched for distros that included "enlightenment 1.0.2" which I suppose is the current version. It returned:

Quote:
• Arch Linux: current
• Gentoo Linux: unstable
• Lunar Linux: moonbase
• Mandriva Linux: cooker
• Source Mage GNU/Linux: grimoire, grimoire
• T2 SDE: snapshot
Here's the link: http://distrowatch.com/search.php?pk....0.2#pkgsearch

Note that you could install enlightenment in pretty much any Linux I suppose, but I'm guessing that these ones listed have at least got it configured to some degree.

Where/how did you 'come into contact' with enlightenment?

I'm not sure what you mean by 'built in', but I use it under OpenSUSE. it is not part of the default install, but is easy enough to add.

Should have first have clarified the 'it' bit, too. E16 and E17 are quite different and look quite different. E17 is a 'work in progress' but most of the time, a lot more of it works than KDE 4.x (imho, ymmv, etc, etc). And it is attractive, without being heavyweight.

For e17, you have to add a slightly obscure repo like this, and then select e17 and maybe a couple of theme packages (23Oz, 2be), if you like, and, short of a download, you are done.

Yes, I heard that; really puts people off, me included.

Arch Linux appears to be a no GUI linux, so not sure why they are saying that it has the enlightenment interface, lol.
