How to use Enlightenment Desktop Enviro?


I just did a fresh install of RH 7.2 and chose to install KDE and Enlightenment. I have Logged into Enlightenment but I have no idea how to use it, except for how to get up the menus by clicking on the mouse buttons. Are there any good resources that help newbies use Enlightenment??

Well, I'd like to be able to access programs and the Xterm through it, but the only thing I can make it do is show all these config menus. The only thing that I have on the screen is the desktop previews for the 2 desktops and the iconbox which has no icons in it, and I cannot figure out how to add icons into it, and how to access programs...

No, I don't have Gnome installed, and I don't have a three button mouse, but it is set to emulate 3 buttons. Does that mean click both buttons at the same time to make it a "3rd button?"

e is pretty easy and stable window manager, once you got a hold on it is a bliss to configure, check their website, the configs are under /usr/share/enlightenment (at least on my system)
or it can be /usr/X11R6/share/enlightenment/ , as a general rule do as root
find / -name enlightenment -print
to find any references to enlightenment.

Enlightenment desktop with KDE functionality?

Is it possible to get Enlightenment desktop with KDE functionality?

To me the KDE desktop is hideously ugly and computery whatever you do with it. So it would be nice to get the beauty of Enlightenment 16 but still have the KDE menu - hidden; I mean whatever you need to do what KDE does. TIA.
