Smile Configuring Enlightenment with KDE and Gnome in RedHat 9.0


Dear Members,

I have recently installed RedHat 9.0 and have been trying to config Enlightenment to work in KDE and Gnome environments, but with no success.

I have already downloaded Enlightenment rpm package and it installed correctly.

I read that to config it in Gnome I should use the option "Window Manager" in Gnome Control Center, but when I try to run Gnome Control Center I just receive a window with many icons, ONE of which is again Gnome Control Center. If I click this icon, the same window opens again, and so on.

I also read that to install it in KDE, I should put the following line in .startkde or .xinitrc file:

exec /usr/bin/enlightenment

However, there is no .startkde configuration file in my system, although there is a binary startkde file. Should I create a .startkde file?

I have already created a .xinitrc file in my home directory, and put the line above there. But it made no difference.

Any help?

Thanks a lot.

Marcelo Pereira

Exclamation Similar Problem

I just installed Enlightenment on my computer.
I have Red Hat 9 and GNOME.
In the past I installed Fluxbox WM and I've had no problems with that.
I cannot get my computer to recognise that Enlightenment is there, and hense can't use it. Any ideas??

it is a PITA to get it working correctly in RH9.. back when i used RH.. i found this website that had some rpm's... this configured everything properly and added it to the session list...

Well I managed to get enlightenment on my Sessions menu (login screen) by placing a file titled "enlightenment" and using chmod +x <name> on it. This file contained the line:
exec /location/of/enlightenment/bin/enlightenment

This would have worked if I didn't have trouble with my installation, but I do. I'm thinking of changing my distro to Debian (via Knoppix) very soon so I'll play with enlightenment once I've done that
