Gnome is out, e17 is in

We should go for the 3G, SMS and GPS or other functionnalities such as the cams, yet I don’t like gnome on the M! and rather consider e17 as a real alternative. So e17, here we go, and we’ll take care of the other stuff at some later time.

cd /usr/src/; mkdir e17; cd e17/

sudo aptitude install svn cvs

edit a shell file and paste this:


set -e



svn co $SVN

PROJECTS="eina edje eet evas ecore embryo e_dbus efreet eina e"


export PATH="$PREFIX/bin:$PATH"


for PROJ in $PROJECTS; do

pushd trunk/$PROJ

make clean distclean || true

./ $OPT && make && sudo make install


sudo ldconfig


Make it +x, run!

chmod +x

sudo aptitude install automake autoconf

sudo ./

You might have to run things once or twice since the dependencies order might change.

Anyhow, edit or re-run. Adapt to your needs.

Once all this is fine, do some update:

cd /etc/alternatives

rm x-session-manager

ln -s /usr/local/bin/enlightenment_start x-session-manager

Restart X, set your options, and you should be ready for a new experience.

Note: as i was saying in Step 0, doing all this is quite gready in terms of room. Using a (15€) 4Go µSD card for /usr i had to remove some dirs while doing the initial svn co for e17... if you followed theses steps, the poor 4Go card might now look like this (still compiling e17!):

/dev/mmcblk0p1 3.8G 3.3G 314M 92% /usr

Sadly, we needed all that space to setup the things. If new lenny kernels do work, let us know, lots of compile time and space could be spared. And when e17 hits the stable & released flag, another chunk could be teared off.

Many thanks to all projects and documentation posts, the road wasn’t quite as a nice and easy one to get there, but we’ve made it! Time for a cup of tea, and enjoy your new MID device.
