Fantastic idea. I originally did want the latest Enlightenment, but I just gave myself a crash course in SlackBuilds (thanks for the nudge).

So, if I understand correctly (all using only SlackBuilds.org, btw), I need to download the tarballs for both the slackbuild script and the source for the main package and all of the dependencies. I have done that.

Next, I extracted the script tarball for each.

Next, I dropped the source tarball in to the newly created folder matching each. (I initially tried to install the first listed dependency [lua, if it matters] and it didn't work because it was looking for the source tarball inside the directory).

Now, I have folders for each dependency, as well as enlightenment itself. I also went in to each directory and made the scripts executable, using chmod +x.

Am I ok so far? And if I am, should I move all of those files to, and run the executable scrips from /tmp?

Thanks much.

Auroch
all the steps are the same for each one.
this is what page came up fo me https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...enlightenment/

starting from left to right on that list of dependencies, click on it, if you see dependency for that one, then click on it, then if you see dependency for that one, click on that, until you no longer see dependencies needed, then start from there and work your way back to the original one on the enlightenment page, then do the same for all of them until they are all installed, working your way across that list .. right to left , that is the way I go, don't know if that matters, left to right or right to left, but you have to have ALL of the dependencies installed before actually installing enlightenment.

un-taring the slackBuild file first
example
Code:
userx@Voided.1 & Downloads >> $tar -xvzf enlightenment.tar.gz ; mv -v enlightenment-0.17.6.tar.bz2 enlightenment ; cd enlightenment
enlightenment/
enlightenment/xinitrc.enlightenment17
enlightenment/doinst.sh
enlightenment/README
enlightenment/enlightenment.SlackBuild
enlightenment/enlightenment.info
enlightenment/slack-desc
'enlightenment-0.17.6.tar.bz2' -> 'enlightenment/enlightenment-0.17.6.tar.bz2'



userx@Voided.1 & enlightenment >> $ls
README     enlightenment-0.17.6.tar.bz2  enlightenment.info  xinitrc.enlightenment17
doinst.sh  enlightenment.SlackBuild      slack-desc
BUT that is tricky if you do not understand what I just did.

un-tar then move the tar ball source into that slackbuild dir then cd into that slackbuild directory then run the slackbuild file

Code:
./enlightenment.SlackBuild
when it is done it will show you where it is at on the screen, all you have to do then is.
Code:
#installpkg '/path/packageName
the eaisest way to do that is first type as root
Code:
installpkg
making a space afterwords, then highlight the /tmp/PachageName then middle click on it with your mouse then hit enter.

....so, since I have the patience of a crack-head who's been without for a week, I went ahead and started installing dependencies. I got to the third (following SlackBuild.org's install order), which is eet, and got this error:

checking for EET... no
configure: error: Package requirements (eina >= 1.7.10 openssl zlib) were not met:

No package 'eina' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables EET_CFLAGS
and EET_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.


I did install "eina" just prior to "eet" without error.

BW, I understand what you're saying, I really do.

I says it needs "eina"

I run the scrip and install "eina" and it finishes without error.

I move on to the next one and it still says it needs "eina".

which one are you running? this one?

start here then work your way backwards from it
did you run installpkg off of eina build fist?

https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/libraries/eina/

work your way back up and find posting 31

TL/DR: Executing install script for enlightenment-0.17.6-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz.
Package enlightenment-0.17.6-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz installed.

BW: Man, I'm such an idiot. Apparently what I've been doing the whole time was just compiling the install script, but not actually installing it. I had all of the packages that that had their dependencies resolved sitting in /tmp. The others I easily made once I installed THEIR dependencies. Once I ran installpkg on each, in order, everything went fine.

Thanks a lot for your help and putting up with my ignorance.

The desktop crashed after initial setup. It loaded the environment, but on click on the desktop brought up the applications menu and then everything froze. After a reboot though, all seems to be working as it should.

Haha, the sad thing is, I ran this version of enlightenment a few years ago. I somewhat liked it, but felt it was...umm....awkward? clunky? for some tasks (like visual customization, etc.). I knew what I was in for, but I continued to use it in the past. But now, with KDE Plasma as an option, I think that may be the ticket for me.

The main goal of this was for me to learn something. And thanks to you (and everyone else who commented), I DID.

I guess I'm a glutton for punishment, loving Slackware but being less-than-good at command line, and also sometimes wanting the "newest" of "whatever". I guess that literally goes against everything that Slack stands for, but I digress.....

Oh, wanted to say also, I love your signature BW......

Until my next needy moment *grin*

I tried slackware briefly. I found it a bit clunky. Having to build so many things from sources and as root (bad idea). Then it was missing things like the java open gl libs, so I couldn't even play my usual games. Back to debian I went, as I can build packages simply and NOT as root. Slackbuilds.org is a great resource for any distro. Along with the arch wiki. I liked that slack had a substantial development subsystem installed by default, but not for me.
