Enlightenment DR17 and desktop icons and other issues


Is there any way to include desktop icons on this wm? I really like this WM but I would like some desktop icons also on it.

Also AmaroK doesn't remember poop when I'm runing DR17, Audacius same(even on KDE).

You'd need something like... I think it's called iDesk. Or use rox's desktop features.

Don't understand the second part of what you're saying, though.

Second part:
AmaroK works ok in KDE. But on DR17, every change I make in it, add a new music, delete some music or anything, and then when I restart AmaroK it returns to the way it was before.
I.e. if I take AmaroK with no music in it, open it in DR17, load it with music, and then restart amaroK, it's again empty.
Same is for Audacius but it happens the same in KDE too.

Hm, sorry - dunno what could be causing that. I would think maybe you had a read-only config for amarok or something, but you say it works in KDE. And as far as I know, amarok handles its own config - it's not like it passes it off to some settings daemon, right? So it should work fine in enlightenment. And I still didn't follow the last part - you're saying audacious doesn't save its playlist in *either* KDE or E? I guess that could be a perms issue, but it seems unlikely. It just saves a playlist to ~/.audacious/playlist.xspf and re-reads it on re-start. Unless there's a config option to turn that off and I've forgotten about it. Peculiar. Sorry I can't be of more help, but those are some ideas of a ballpark to be looking in. A last shot is that maybe amarok relies on an environment that is set up by KDE's initialization process but that isn't being set up by E's initialization process. Somewhat like the XDG_foo_HOME variables which tell FDo-compliant apps where to store their configs. That doesn't explain audacious, though. Good luck.

Hmm, new version kinda buggy.
CPU load is sky high, and it restarts every now and then...

Ok, back to KDE.

How bou Compiz or Beryl? Will they run on a integrated graphics card?
