  • If you are using Ubuntu or a Debian based distro you would use the .deb package. I would look in your add/remove software app to see if is in the Ubuntu repo already. Fedora, RedHat, Centos and SUSE use the .rpm package format.

  • Even before downloading the environement from a web page, I would check the package repositories for your distribution, as Enlightenment is probably already in there.

  • After running a quick check, Enlightenment didn't seem to appear in either redhat nor ubuntu repositories. You can install said package using the terminal:

    For redhat based distros, download the binary RPR file from enlightenment.org and run:

    rpm -Uvh enlightenment.i386.rpm

    For Debian based distros, download the .DEB file and run:

    dpkg -i enlightenment.i386.deb

    These commands must be run as root, and the package name will be different than the examples used above.

  • DR17 is and has been a work in progress for some time and is still considered a beta release. Any attempt to compile it have potential of coming across some discrepancies because it is still being modified, your best bet is to find a the packages in a repo for your distro that others have built by already correcting the errors.

    You can find instruction for installing DR17 on ubuntu at http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-install-e17-enlightenment-desktop-in-ubuntu.html
