    need help with E17


    So I've managed to install e17 from source, but I can't seem to get what I'm looking for out of it. So here's a few questions:

    1. I'm lookng for something like the ibox, but showing not only iconified windows, but all the windows I have open.

    2. How can I put a clock in the modular engage bar?

    3. How do I put permanent icons in the engage module? They seem to dissappear when I close the programs that are running.

    4. How do I get the .eap files to look for icons in folders outside of my home directory?

    I think that's it for now. Thanks in advance.

    That E17's really something. Coming from the other end of the desktop spectrum, (IceWM) E17 feels like something from outer space! All I managed to do was get it installed. I'll watch and learn from your progress.

    ha I definitely agree with that. IMO, IceWM looked worse than how windows looked and wasn't even as configurable. But I only used it for maybe 3 days.

    IceWM doesn't have bouncing icons and all that animated jazz, but it boots in two seconds, is fast as a scalded dog, is highly configurable and gets serious work done in no time. I've used almost all the destop environments and windows managers and I always come back to IceWM! E17 is fun to play around with though...

    You can start beagled in ~/.xinitrc (if you use "startx") or ~/.xsession (if you use a DM), but remember to start it before you start enlightenment and put a & in the end of the line! Something like this:
    Code:
    beagled --some-option &
    exec enlightenment17
    Enlightenment may have it's own startup app manager, but I don't know about it...
