    entrance issues


    Hi all does anyone setup and have working enlightenment and entrance?I emerged enlightenment from cvs and entrance successfully but i can't add any other sessions.I wish i could add xfce and enlightenment but i can't get it worked.I edit the database with
    Code:
    edb_gtk_ed /etc/entrance_config.db
    command and did that
    /entrance/session/[num]/icon default.png
    /entrance/session/[num]/session xfce4
    /entrance/session/[num]/title Xfce 4
    (as number i add once to the above ones for the sessions)
    but i can't get it to work.Only when i edit kde session and make it xfce i managed to succeed but i want to add a new one entry.Also i can't change the theme for entrance whenever i change it in the database entrance becomes very crappy any idea for that?Any suggestions?

    Not at my box right now, but I believe there is a variable that controls how many sessions are listed. Look for this in the entrance config...it may solve your woes. If not, I'll take a look at mine when I get home tonight.

    To emerge something from cvs you should unmask the package from
    Code:
    -*
    keyword in /etc/portage/package.keywords files
    e.g.
    Code:
    echo x11-misc/engage -* >>  /etc/portage/package.keywords

    Tonight, later in the week...same diff.

    /entrance/session/count is what you're looking for, though. That specifies the number of sessions that are listed.

    On a tangent, are you trying out e17 or are you running e16 still?

    Yeah...there are a couple things that I miss (Alt+TAB..) running e17, but all in all I really enjoy it. They've done such a great job with the development of this WM...
