How can i install newest E17 ??
August 07, 2007 12:34AM
Hi.

I wanted to try out E17 in the newest version and added the 'tests' repository to synaptic.
I have tried to update all packages to the newest version and it seemed to work. But then after reboot no loginscreen appeared. I was thrown back to the commandline ( yes, with a very nice background ). When I started entrance from the manually it just stopped running, saying nothing. there wasn't even a syslogentry. Nothing.
When I start X using 'startx' the E16 desktop appears, but there are black aereas on the screnn ( just where ibar normally is placed ).
Does anyone out there know how to install these new Versions ?

Thanks in advance.

tests repository is VERY experimental, don't expect that anything works since new e17 is included by default on Elive wink (also a lot of things don't works, new e17 needs to be "good integrated" to Elive)

try this (as root)

cd /usr/share/entrance/themes;
rm -f default.edj;
ln -s e17-default.edj default.edj

Hi,

I've had this problem, too. What you can do is this. From the command line, use startx, and get into e16. Then, run elpanel (you can do it from a shell or from ibar -- even though the ibar area shows a black rectangle the names of the applications will show if you mouse over them).

In elpanel, choose the "Keys" icon, then the icon that looks like wooden doors. Choose the default entrance theme, reboot, and you should be able to get back into entrance and e17.

Hope this helps.
