Equinox Desktop Environment

There was a review of the Equinox Desktop Environment (EDE) put up recently, and I figured it might be worth taking a look at.  However, it isn't up on AUR yet.  Could someone make a PKGBUILD for it?

Re: Equinox Desktop Environment

Man, why does it look like windows 98 ?

I guess that's the answer:

If you like innovative user interfaces like tiling window managers, you won't be happy with EDE. Its focus is on being a conservative lightweight environment.

Re: Equinox Desktop Environment

Well I did not write it her, but efltk builds for some time now.

Two of the patches from zlopi's link were already applied, the third one does not harm. I applied all of them in the AUR package, but I do not want to maintain the two packages.

The problem with ede is that it needs someone who really likes it and does some finetuning regarding usability and eyecandy.
To me the upstream project seems to be dead and there is nearly no documentation.
