Enlightenment


I can not get enlightenment to start. Today I downloaded blackbox, fluxbox, and e. I edited my .xinitrc file so I can switch between gnome, kde, bb, and fb. This is my currnet .xinitrc file.

exec fluxbox
#exec startkde
#exec gnome-session
#exec blackbox
#exec /usr/local/enlightenment/bin/e_gen_gnome_menu
#exec enlightenment

I can not figure out where to point it so e will start. Using RH73. Suggestions?

I use this command...

locate

to search for files. You will need to run this first to update the database.

updatedb


then run this command...

locate enlightenment


if it returns the path and filename then use the path and filename to see if it's executable.

ls -l /path/enlightenment

can't you just # the exec fluxbox and uncomment out the exec enlightment..
would look like this:

#exec fluxbox
#exec startkde
#exec gnome-session
#exec blackbox
#exec /usr/local/enlightenment/bin/e_gen_gnome_menu
exec enlightenment

when i do the command: whereis enlightenment
I get: enlightenment: /usr/local/enlightenment
I changed my .xinitrc to look here and startx but get an error because /usr/local/enlightenment is a directory and not executable
locate elightenment did not show me anything that looked promising

Ok, we got it working. First of all, I did not install it by rpm. I decided to download and try installing it again, this time by rpm.
So i rpm -qs enlightenment > out.txt and saw /usr/bin/enlightenment . I modified my .xinitrc and it works fine. Thanks.
