been googling a bit about Enlightenment and ubuntu, and i found another project that seems a little bit like this project
Elbuntu ( http://e17blog.tuxfamily.org/elbuntu.php / https://launchpad.net/ebuntu )
they may have some package you can use, or mayby collaborate with.
Hope this info helps
Hi Xy, this project was born exactly because Elbuntu and Elive do exist. While Elive is an official E17 project, I like it but it has some defects I cannot live with. Elive is not for total beginners, since it is some kind of an alien desktop for normal people. It has no tray icon space, lacks a great number of tools and configurators, even if it has a stand-alone and dedicated configuration system.
Elbuntu is then an E17 port to Ubuntu, ok, but it is apure E17 desktop, without any tool for configuration, without a tray icon space, again, and it is really difficult to use. I'm not talking about the fact that it has almost no applications or dedicated themes in it. Well, I mean, it doesn't look at all like an Ubuntu derivate. With this I mean that it is not userfriendly at all.
If you read the main page you'll discover that the Geubuntu goal is a completely different one than bringing people just an E17 alone desktop. People may like it or not but Geubuntu means to mix some gnome applications, configurators, and functionalities with those provided by E17. The fact is that E17 is not a Desktop Enviroment but a set of libraries and a Desktop Shell (More than anything else, it is a Window Manager), so it is not designed to provide a full working desktop for everyone. A lot of pro users love to use a pure E17 desktop, but they often have to run the command line too, and this is not Ubunt-ish at all.
Geubuntu, on the other side, has for example a panel giving you a working tray icon space for programs like gnome-power-manager, update-notifier (Do you know that in elbuntu / elive you have to manually update?) and the likes.
That's a big difference, since from the panel you can also run particular applications from gnome to configure some aspects of your desktop and system like the gtk theme and so on.
Well, there are an enormous numbers of differences. The fact is that Geubuntu tryes to give people an easy to use, ubuntish, E17 desktop. Try out Elbuntu and tell me if it is an user-friendly and immediatelly configurable desktop, than we'll talk about it again
Plus, from the next release, Geubuntu will have fully original themes, backgrounds, login screens and so on, it will have a much more indipendent soul
Eyecandy is very important for an E17 desktop.
