That's good to know. I'm staying with EFL 1.22.x for the time being since there seem to be a few bugs in the evas loaders on EFL 1.23.x according to a discussion on the Enlightenment-users mailing list:

Python-EFL 1.23.0 release

Davide Andreoli has announced the availability of Python-EFL 1.23:
Quote:
We are pleased to announce that **Python-EFL** 1.23.0 is now released and
available for download.

== Download ==
http://download.enlightenment.org/re...-1.23.0.tar.xz
http://download.enlightenment.org/re....tar.xz.sha256

The packages is also available on pypi, to install just use:
pip install python-efl

For convenience the tarballs contain both the Cython sources and generated
intermediary C sources, meaning you **do not** need Cython to compile the
bindings. Full cython sources are also publicly accessible from our git
repository at:
https://git.enlightenment.org/bindin...ython-efl.git/

More information about the python bindings can be found at:
https://phab.enlightenment.org/w/pro...dings_for_efl/

---

= What's New =
As always new features of EFL have been ported and the usual has been done
in fixing bugs, optimizing speed and improve documentation. (see
**ChangeLog** in the tarball for the full list of changes)

---

= Building and Dependencies =
If you have existing Python-EFL installed you may wish to uninstall them
before compiling and installing to avoid possible conflicts during install
and/or runtime.

To build the bindings you will need the following libraries:
* python (Python 2.6+/3.2+)
* efl (1.23)
* python-dbus (0.83+)

If you wish to compile using the Cython sources a required dependency is:
* cython (0.28+)

To install the bindings run:

(sudo) python setup.py install

or:
(sudo) python3 setup.py install

To generate the documentation locally you need:
* sphinx (1.1+)
* graphviz (optional)

To build the documentation:

python setup.py build_doc

For more information on available build options see:

python setup.py --help

---

= Projects using Python-EFL =
| **Project** | **Website** |
| -- | -- |
| **EpyMC** - Media Center |https://github.com/DaveMDS/epymc |
| **Espionage** - D-Bus inspector |https://phab.enlightenment.org/w/projects/espionage/ |
| **Epour** - BitTorrent Client |https://phab.enlightenment.org/w/projects/epour/ |
| **Econnman** - Connman GUI |https://phab.enlightenment.org/w/projects/econnman/ |
| **Eluminance** - Fast photo browser |https://github.com/DaveMDS/eluminance |
| **Egitu** - Git User Interface | https://github.com/DaveMDS/egitu |
| **Edone** - GettingThingsDone | https://github.com/DaveMDS/edone |
| **Lekha** - PDF viewer | https://github.com/kaihu/lekha |
| **Polkit-EFL** - Polkit agent |https://git.enlightenment.org/misc/polkit-efl.git |
| **Epack** - Archive extractor | https://github.com/wfx/epack |

... and many more that cannot fit in this short list.

I'm again trying to use enlightenment. I already had alienbob's lua, while bullet and luajit from installed from SBo. So I made a copy of the git slackENLIGHTENMENT and ran the install.sh which built efl and python-efl. But it gave an error error message about meson and no pkg_resources when attempting to build enlightenment. So I built enlightment from SBo, which completed without issue. Of course that left me without terminology, rage, and ephoto. But when I tried to build those with the slackbuild in their directories it failed with the error message about meson and missing pkg_resources.

At this point enlightenment does start up, without rage, terminology and ephoto. It seems to work correctly, although I have no sound when attempting to use XMMS, VLC, or Audacious, error about no sound card, while browser sounds are present. I went back and built efl and phython-efl from SBo, but on replacing the sEL versions with the SBo version enlightement wouldn't start at all. I suspect the enligtenment SBo build found some parts of the sEL builds which are missing from the SBo builds and I would need to rebuild enlightment-SBo after the efl and phython-efl SBo's were built and installed to get it to start. Instead I'd like to get the slackENLIGHTMENT process to work by solving the meson "pkg_resources" not present error. Any ideas what to try for that fix?

I know that the sound version from git is for ALSA and not PULSE. Is it simply a matter of starting the PULSE server? Is there a way to get sound from my preferred applications without building rage?

Thanks for your advice.

Is there a way to get e19 to show tasks and pager for both screens of my dual monitor setup? When I had Pager to the shelf only applications and tasks of that screen (ex.0.1) are being shown on the shelf. Is this a shelf setting or an environment setting? Cheers.

Sorry. I have been busy with other things. Are you running -stable or -current? rage, terminology and enlightenment 0.23.1 does require meson but I haven't tested the slackEnlightenment build scripts on -stable.

enlightenment 0.23.x still seems buggy to me. I have noticed that the 'Application Menu' is not getting populated (With my own SlackBuilds). Is this happening to anyone else?

Kind of. The programs show up but the icons are missing. The only workaround is to restart Enlightenment. I'm thinking of reverting to E22.4 since that seems to be working better on both -stable and -current.

I'm using stable 14.2 full install with KDE removed, with AlienBob's lua, ninja, python3, qt5, vlc, others which I believe were needed by qt5-webkit or vlc.I can send if you need. Meson is meson-0.51.0-x86_64-1_SBo. Don't believe any special flags set for building. I was able to build the SBo versions of efl-1.21.1-x86_64-1_SBo, python-efl-1.21.0-x86_64-1_SBo, enlightenment-0.22.4-x86_64-1_SBo and installed them without problems. I was not able to use the script on git to build enlightenment becuase is always failed with meson pkg_resources not available.

I am using Slackware's xfce terminal and obviously vlc with pulse-audio server and everything is working great. But I have some configuration issues which I need help with. For example I have dual monitors and both are working just find. Even the Move To function lets me move windows to each of the desktops. But when I set Pager to be part of a shelf it only shows the virtualdesktop of that monitor's shelf. Is there a way for the pager to reflect both monitors of the virtual desktop?

Cheers,

Does the SBo version of Terminology build on 14.2?
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...m/terminology/
I use bullet, lua, and luajit from SBo, vlc, and qt5 from AlienBOB.
KDE and Xfce series are removed from my setup as well.
I don't use dual monitors so I am stumped regarding those issues.

Maybe you can give me a lead on the dual monitor virtual desktop pager config by sharing where you go for help with configuration, the enlightenment home page or a special group?

I haven't tried the latest terminology, but I have an older terminology 1.0 SBo which I could install to try.

I have been migrating to SBo for many packages, since Eric's focused is properly on packages for -current and KDE's latest suite.
Wife's Win10 has vivaldi so her userid backup on my Slackware system also needs vivaldi and I keep them both updated for her. I'm going to move her to icecat on the Win10 and away from vivaldi since she doesn't like the sidebar at all. I'm hoping to have her use e19 on the Slackware system, thus I need help in getting the configuration correct or she'll be totally confused. Cheers.

I use the #e channel on irc.freenode.net and the Enlightenment-users mailing list:
http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/l...htenment-users

You could try and ask about dual monitor setup on those.

I've installed the terminolog 1.0 SBo and it is working without issue. Thanks for the mailing list reference and channel. Cheers
