Question Enlightenment


I am trying to install Enlightenment and I seem to be having troubles. enlightenment-0.16.4-1.i386 plus a bunch of other packages. When I try installing the needed packages it tells me that LibGLcore.so.1 is needed and libmlib.so.1 and a couple of others. I am running Red Hat 8.0 is there anywhere I can go and do one download and get this up and going? Instead of 30 files or so. Maybe someone can enlighten me on how to do this I am willing to start over, if that is what it takes. Not a problem.

Do you boot to a graphical or text login?

why didn't you just install it when you first installed Redhat 8.0?, it was just a check mark away, and then you wouldn't have to do all of this, just click in the theme selector and double click on enlightment,

I did an everything install this last time and I can not find enlightenment anywhere. Let me know where that is, please. As far as logging in I usually log into graphical mode but I can change that. It's not a problem.

it is just fine if you log into graphical mode. do you run KDE or gnome?

If you are running Gnome, which I hope, it's quite simple

GnomeStartMenu> Programs > Settings > Desktop > Windows Manager

click on Windows Manager, select Enlightment, and click OK. Voila! you got enlightment,

enjoy!

In Gnome I don't have a programs >settings and so forth. I am running Red Hat 8.0 now. And I did find the desk switching tool and enlightenment is not there.

it requires a little tweaking
so Gnome you said, I assume it is GDM that is your graphical login screen.
in your /etc/X11/gdm add the folowing file call it Enlightenment with following contents
Code:
#!/bin/bash -login

/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession enlightenment
now in /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession file add in the case statement for other windowmangers
Code:
enlightenment)
                exec enlightenment
                ;;
Mow you can choose enlightenment from drop down list in GDM upon login

Okay now I am a newbie pretty much. Can you be alittle more specific about what you are wanting me to edit. I don't want to mess anything up. Is enlightenment included with 8.0, because I can not find it anywhere.

It should come with it. I mean, from the 7 series, they did change some things, but it's more like the 7 series of Redhat than not. So, what you need to do is open Gedit, type in the new file the text that neo told you, and save it under the name of Enlightment.
Then you'll be able to load it in the Graphical Login Screen at boot up.

This is exactly what you do

You are probably using gdm as he said above.
cd /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions

touch Enlightenment
chmod 777 Enlightenment
(open - use whatevr text editor you are comfortable with) Enlightenment

modify the empty file and type this

#!/bin/sh

exec /usr/bin/enlightenment

(save and exit)

gdm should now show Enlightenment as an option under Sessions..
Good Luck

gosh the other fellow is right LOL.....When you install RH 8.0 make sure you check everything as far as FULL INSTALL...if you are worried about Enlightment during the install go to Other Graphical Desktops and make sure Enlightment is there check marked. Its really as simple as that. Ive done it a thousand times and I know the option is there..GL
