Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

Update: x86_64 repo now online

Okay, just updated the repo (and package builds).

#e17 for i686
[takhis]
Server = ftp://takhis.net/arch/i686

#e17 for x86_64
[takhis]
Server = ftp://takhis.net/arch/x86_64

#e17 for ppc
[takhis]
Server = ftp://takhis.net/arch/ppc

PKGBUILD Updates (for furester et al):
*Updated conflicts/provides across the board, one should hopefully be able to switch from community repo now without much, if any, fuss (still has to say 'y' a couple of times). imlib2-cvs provides=(imlib2) actually seems to work (for 'feh' and whatever).
*Added licenses for all packages, the builds should now meet all arch packaging requirements. (BSD sucks in this regards as it requires me to include COPYING for each and every package).
* Updated dependencies (went hunting with "ldd" ;) also, they're a bit recursive, confusing, but you get used to it).
* Added mime-types to the .desktop's, simply double-clicking a picture in e17's internal filemanager should now allow you to open with exhibit/entice etc. (Old users might have to "Regenerate Applications Menu").
*Moved the ./autogen.sh part below the cp -R to-tmp-build dir part, fixes annoying automake/conf errors on subsequent builds.
*If you build something yourself, use `versionpkg` instead of `makepkg`, read more at http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_CVS_%26_SVN_PKGBUILD_guidelines
*Updated descriptions: `pacman -Ss e17` is now pretty ;)
*And lots of minor tweaks here and there.
*e_modules-cvs isn't split up yet though ):

Grab the package builds + fluff here:
ftp://takhis.net/arch/builds/_e17-pkgbu … 070529.tgz



For new users: There are a few different ways to install e17:
0) add the correct repo above to pacman.conf && pacman -Sy
1) if you only want the window manager:
  pacman -S e-cvs e_modules-cvs
2) if you only want entrance:
  pacman -S entrance-cvs
3) interesting stuff:
  pacman -S exhibit-cvs emphasis-cvs elitaire-cvs

If you use "startx" just do:
echo "exec /opt/e17/bin/enlightenment_start" > ~/.xinitrc
or with dbus + launching from inittab:
echo -e "source /etc/profile;exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session /opt/e17/bin/enlightenment_start" > ~/.xinitrc

If you use gdm/kdm/entrance, just select Enlightenment from the drop-down list

To install entrance either add entranced to DAEMONS array in rc.conf, or add this to /etc/inittab
x:5:respawn:/opt/e17/sbin/entranced -nodaemon >& /dev/null

Another trick is to just start e17 as your user directly from inittab:
x:5:respawn:/bin/su - myusername /usr/bin/startx -- -quiet -logverbose 1 >& /dev/null

If, while using startx, it fails to start the first time, you probably forgot to refresh your environment, just log out/back in or `. /etc/profile.d/e17.sh`

If, while using *dm/slim/entrance, it fails to start, maybe they have a custom PATH that you need to add /opt/e17/bin to in /etc...conf (I know slim's like that).

If everything is messed up, try doing a `rm -rf ~/.e`


Finally, head on over to http://get-e.org/ and grab a theme that isn't ugly ;)

Enjoy.

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

Hey reverie,

The 64bit build is working so far. One thing that's kind of strange is that the menu system is completely propagated by software that I don't have installed. I'm guessing that it's all your software(?). Is there an easy way to reset all the menus?

Yeah, I tried it and it didn't work... exactly. It found my stuff, but it didn't get rid of the old stuff.

Also for me, MPlayer is broken with the 64 bit E17. It will start, and videos start to play then stop in the middle or don't start at all. Then when I try to kill MPlayer, it won't shut down. This does not happen under KDE.

Well, `rm -rf ~/.e/e/applications` and clicky/Configuration/Applications Menus/Regenerate should fix that.

Anyways, e17 uses .desktop files now, just like gnome and kde, so here's where the files are: `echo $XDG_DATA_DIRS`. Those (except /usr/local...) come and go with the packages, so maybe you just need to do a pacman -R oldstuff ? Other than that, you've got some .desktop's in your home folder, e17 stores it's stuff in ~/.e/e/applications/all, dunno where gnome/kde hides 'em, probably as a sneaky xml somewhere. I'd also like to take this opportunity to remind the .desktop authors that TryExec= is there for a reason, read, shouldn't show dead .desktops in the menus.

Ya, I've bumped into that as well (on i686), annoying. I think mplayer -vo xv is messed up, read, does funny stuff it's not supposed to, just like e17. Just try one of the others; `mplayer -vo help`. If you find one you like, just put it in ~/.mplayer/config (like, put vo=gl on a new line).

Ps. Furester, the pkgbuilds are in aur now (thx mOlOk), so now you don't have to do anything (I think) wink

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

Hi all,

I just switched from gentoo to arch and I must say it really rocks  wink
I used the easy_e17.sh script to install e17 but I would like to use the reverie repository now.

A few days ago, the following changes occured :

Hello folks,

I just wanted to let you know that Etk and some of the applications
that use it have been moved from e17/proto to e17/libs and e17/apps.
Here's a list of what moved:

etk -> libs
enhance -> libs
enity -> apps
estickies -> apps
etk-perl -> libs
exhibit -> apps
emphasis -> apps

Package managers or anyone that uses scripts that rely on what has
moved should update their stuff to work properly.

Best regards,
hisham.

@reverie : is it possible to update the repository ?

Thanks in advance

P.S. : What application are you using to display the OS, kernel, WM, ... ?

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

Hi guys,
Just installed Arch 686 on a new partition and am trying to compile using easy_e17.sh.  It seems not to want to compile some of the modules like tclock.  The autogen gives theses results;

./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/e17
Running aclocal...

po/Makefile.am:8: (probably a GNU make extension)
po/Makefile.am:10: `%'-style pattern rules are a GNU make extension
Makefile.am:37: `%'-style pattern rules are a GNU make extension


I realize that I could just use the packages from the repo but I'm trying to learn how to do this stuff myself. (So I don't have to ask too many questions in the future).  anyone have any ideas??

Also, I noticed on the Get-E.org site it says;

Please note that there are known problems with using automake-1.10 and currently is not supported for building Enlightenment or any EFL libraries.

Currently Arch is using automake 1.10-1.  Does the '-1' contain a fix for this?

Thanks,

Jim

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

No, a downgrade of automake is required... according to the devs, who claim that they cannot be expected to support every new version of automake out there... even though everything else in their cvs works with latest automake... Right, so, as usual, we have to resort to a cheap hack to work around uptight devs. The simplest fix is to just `cp /usr/share/gettext/config.rpath .`, I've added a quickfix to the pkgbuild in aur, all of e_modules-cvs should compile again. Also updated in takhis repo, I believe there's a new forecast module or some such for you to enjoy. Have fun.

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

Haven't seen any cvs updates in yonks, that being said, I haven't had any issues with it. It has mplayer style controls, uses libxine (>emotion), so eats most stuff, also doesn't seem resource intensive. Interface isn't finished though (missing file/playlist dialogs and prefs IMO), and it doesn't look like it'll be finished anytime soon. Edje theming should work however ;)

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

hey!

Are you able to start an app shaded?
Maybe someone could try to shade and goto remeber->shaded, cause i only get a single-pixel-line, no window decorations etc. (though the app works and can be unshaded ... if you find it)?
I know it worked a few month ago, perhaps something is wrong with my configs ....

Thanks.

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

Works fine for me (just tested), but I'm also running a much newer version, which requires pacman3 to install (or, alternatively, requires me to port some scripts, dunno why the new repo-add doesn't work on debian, but I haven't had time to look at it), here's the new repo, if you're daring:

[takhis]
Server = ftp://takhis.net/arch/i686

The other archs (x86_64 and ppc) will follow once... dunno, once pacman3 is out of testing?

To upgrade to pacman3 (at your own risk, /me likes though), uncomment testing and run `pacman -Sy pacman`, then uncomment testing again (at your digression of course), add my new repo (removing the old, yes, it's just /i686  tagged onto it), and `pacman -Syu`, oh, and answer yes when asked to replace (obsolete/dead) stuff.

Next, and this final step is very important, run `rm -rf ~/.e` ):
Grab new themes from get-e.org (they've all been updated by now)

I should probably point out that they've switched to the freedesktop.org menu(+icon) standard now, this means that it looks for .desktop files in the usual places plus ~/.local/share/applications/ . you might be able to use gnome/kde menu apps to make your own .desktop files now, or that's the general idea anyways. Standards an' all... I did stuff manually, as I'm used to writing .desktop files for new packages wink

alx242, you'll find an updated eclair in there as well, try that.

Sorry for making all this a tad hard, but I'm a bit pre-occupied at the moment, and they do like breaking stuff in -cvs smile


Oh, almost forgot, package groups seems broken using the scripts from pacman3, so if anyone _new_ is looking to install e17, do it like this: pacman -S e-cvs e_modules-cvs entrance-cvs

Might wanna tag emphasis-cvs (very good mpd client) and exhibit-cvs (gqview) to that list, perhaps eclair-cvs, but, meh.

Cheers

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

ahh .. starting shaded works with the new cvs-version.
but i'm kinda confused about where to put my .desktop-files,
when i put them in ~/.local/share/applications they appear in the "Favourites"-menu,
but when i put them in ~/.e/e/applications/all they do nat appear at all.
Thanks for Clarification.:)

MyR

Edit: know how to cofigure favourites and application menus now, But i still do not get any .desktops in the graphical configuration dialog under "all".

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

Thought they'd disabled "all" until they'd rewritten it, you shouldn't be able to find a graphical dialog! :) Patience, I'm sure it'll be fixed soon, perhaps. Anyways, "all" is just "all", meaning it's what it finds in $XDG_DATA_DIRS/applications, you can however "overwrite" them by placing a .desktop file with the same name in .local/... (maybe empty to "delete" it?)... I can't quite remember, will have to read the freedesktop standards (or use gnome or kde tools, they _should_ work the same way, this being a standard). So you can still fix things manually... I'm unsure as to how the graphical dialog will work, because it's a tad more than drag'n drop involved, guess it'll take a third party tool ala alacarte. Time will tell...

Re: E17 Packing Volunteer

Are any other E17 users having trouble with DPMS?  For the last few months I have found that unless I switch my desktops (two monitors) to an empty set that DPMS doesn't work.  It concerns me because I dont want to burn an image into my LCDs.

I have set Option Dpms true in my xconfig. I have also set in 'enabled' in E's configuration.  Could this be caused by the modularization of some of the kernel that happened recently in Arch?


I'd really appreciate any help I can get with this.
