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.
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.
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.
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
