Installing Englightenment in Debian


Hi, I recently have been trying to install Enlightenment in Debian...I did it pretty easily by using "apt-get install enlightenment" and that seems to have done it. However, I am currently running KDE 3.3.2 and I have no idea how to start enlightenment. A graphical login starts after Debian loads up, with no CLI.

If anyone could help me with this that would be great, I am pretty stuck and couldn't find any working answers with google.

Thanks,
chris

You could start by using ctrl+alt+F1 to go to a console, log in as your user, su to root and do:
#/etc/init.d/kdm stop
then ^D or 'exit' back to your user
and use the command to start enlightenment! (Can't help you with that one!)

isn't it an option in the Sessions menu? and the command to start it is 'exec enlightenment'.

I get that there is no such file or directory...I am running the latest version of kde.

I also don't know what you are talking about with a sessions menu, where is this? When I first start up there is just a login box with no options whatsoever.

Thank you for your guy's help,
chris

Sounds like you don't have the kde display manager (kdm) installed. I assume you're running xdm, which doesn't have a session management facility (AFAIK).

In that case, try
#/etc/init.d/xdm stop

and then the appropriate command to start enlightenment (exec enlightenment doesn't sound familiar, but it's a long time since I've used it)
