Fedora Core 4 and Enlightenment E17

November 28, 2005

It has been a while since I messed with a Windows Manager and I have not ran Enlightenment in ages. So I figured I would give E17 a spin, this is what I did in order to get it up and running.First, make sure you’ve got an update yum file with some of the latest FC4 software. You can get one from here or here.

Next, ensure that you have a repository for Enlightnenment you can find some here.

Now, this might be a little tricky, but this is what I had to do.

I had a very basic install of FC4 with no KDE or Gnome. Next, I did a

yum install imlib2.i386
yum install eterm
yum install enlightenment

After, all has been installed do a

switchdesk enlightenment

log out and log back in and you’re good to go.
