Confused on Enlightement


Hey all. I want to put Enlightenment on my computer, but when I went to the website, there was so many downloads I got seriously confused. Can someone tell me which ones I need to get......I am running Slack 9.1. Any insight you all can give would be much appreciated. Thanks!
much love,
nikki

Do you use a desktop manager like GDM or KDM or do you use startx? Does it show up in fluxbox under window managers?
