removed the efl libraries and there was another in home which sent to trash - seemed like a redundant one. go figure. so far no issues with my lxde debian so will stay with this unless i have to reinstall. i am happy with debian lxde.

and fr you debian masters out there - reasons for debian and also E. most distros are based off of debian that i have used or based off of ubuntu which is debian based and i am most please with bodhi and moksha and was therefore interested in the e22 development. that is my only reasons and main reasons. i have 2laptops i run daily i count on and only had access to an old macbook. ny wife's laptop also runs bodhi so not going to experiment with hers either.

hope you understand.

To uninstall, keep the your source and go back in and run
Sudo make uninstall

For each one and hopefully they added that feature to the make files. If you got rid of your source then you have to reconfigure and compile it, then run the above command. This is so you can “trick “ the source into thinking it’s installed. The compile part you might be able to skip.

I’ve got version 16. and. 22 on slack and they both work

if you got everything installed and cannot find it in the listings from your login manager, then check xsessions for its desktop file.


Code:
$ ls /usr/share/xsessions
cinnamon.desktop    e16-session.desktop  xfwm4.desktop
cinnamon2d.desktop  xfce.desktop
in yours you should see some that says enlightenment.desktop. If not then using sudo copy one, anyone to

Code:
cd /usr/share/xsessions
sudo cp -v xfce4.desktop enlightenment.desktop
sudo nano enlightnement.desktop
then in that file change the name , and Exec to whatever enlightenment uses, I am in Void and do not have that installed so I cannot check its name , but the executable should be in /usr/bin

desktop
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Enlightenment
Comment=Log in using Enlightenment (Version 0.22.4)
Icon=/usr/share/enlightenment/data/images/enlightenment.png
TryExec=/usr/bin/enlightenment_start
Exec=/usr/bin/enlightenment_start
DesktopNames=Enlightenment
just make it look like that, and make sure the executable is in /usr/bin depends on where you set prefix= to when running your configure, or where it defaults to if you did not use prefix=

let me know if this is all that was missing, if it works now then I will not have to do what I told you in your pm to me.

Be aware that every build of enlightenment ">= 17" I tried to test/use in the past was somehow broken (tried up to including 21 - did not try 22.x).

You could have a chance by using "Moksha", which is basically a snapshot of Enlightenment (some version ">=17", details/current status is here https://www.bodhilinux.com/moksha-desktop/ ) with a lot of bugs fixed.

More infos here: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...it-4175649197/

Cheers

I am working on a build script, taken from Slackware slackbuilds, everything is off of slackbuild.org tars and scripts, and just combining them into one main script in the order they need to be in, and am going to get a debian live to test it on. it is compiling fine on Void linux, but to install it. I am going to try using this live boot stick so as to not take a chance on messing up Void during testing.

version 22.x

i appreciate everyone help here but i think i may stop visitng this since i really know so little compared to all of you heavies. i spent a long time trying to find the info in some xsessions file - no find - found 3 xsessions error and an olde error file. looked up on internet and not much help. did not know terminal comands so doing it that way was useless. read somewhere that xsessions is old and xinit is current but then again who knows what is right and wrong when you know very little. i do try and i have struggled for 15 yrs or so - so i run linux but that is more luck than skill. i Do apologize. being old and more of a luddite the older i get - it is tough. i do not even use a cell/smart phone. never did and never plan on it. like linux a lot but know so very little. so thank you all but i will try to become more a lurker than asker or helper in the little i know esp bodhi.
