Engage enlightenment


Hello, everyone!
I'm trying to get engage running on Gnome.
I currently have "?"s instead of icons, and I don't know how to add launchers.

I tried to find build_icon.sh to create icons, but I couldn't find it.
It should be located in /usr/share/engage (but that directory doesn't exist!).
Any ideas?

For using the CVS version of engage change build.sh to read

Code:
#!/bin/sh

# actually compile a edje file with all the gfx etc.
edje_cc $@ -id . -fd . icon.edc icon.eapp

# add eapp properties to the file - they are ALL optional EXCEPT name and exe
# and exe is optional for directory .eapp files
enlightenment_eapp \
icon.eapp \
-set-name "NAME YOU WANT THE LAUNCHER TO DISPLAY" \
-set-generic "" \
-set-comment "COMMENT ON THE PROGRAM (IS NOT USED YET AFAIK)" \
-set-exe "THE BINARY OF THE PROGRAM (WITH PATH)" \
-set-win-class "THE WINDOW CLASS"
If you use this you can replace the icon.png with the icon you want to use then run the build.sh. You then need to copy the icon.eapp to ~/.e/apps/engage/launcher

NOTE: You will need the full CVS version of e17 installed to be able to do this

Thanks :-)
I'll try it eventually, but I installed gDesklets Starterbar now.
Sorry you had to look it up!

I was recently doing this myself also as an experiment

If you fetch e17/libs/engrave and e17/apps/e_utils there's a nice little GUI to create launchers. Kinda buggy and seg faults every now and then but it goes alright
