Enlightenment Desktop for Linux Mint

  7 years ago

Enlightenment known as E most popular the version E17 is known for its stunning effects and high performance. It has wonderful features with addons activated as a matter of taste, highly vonfigurable desktop, application launchers, and modules to bing some features. It now supports Ecomorph a Compiz like desktop mode.

E17 will look fun with Linux Mint with all what Mint is popular for.

I tried E17 onto Mint Rosa and with lots of work in configuring it, I made it a perfect usable desktop.

The idea is good. But the Mint team has already to support 4 great desktop enviroment wich al of them are great and important.

Feel free to suggest that you make and maintain a E version of Mint. ;-)

i think it will bring a lot of work to the team, so i think is better the team decide if it will not affect the support of Cinnamon, Mate, KDE ...

Sounds cool! If any of you seriously want to look into a E version please let me know! I might want in, lol!

I will warn, though, that I spoke to Clem recently about a separate idea and he said that community editions weren't really a focus of Mint anymore. He's a lot more involved now and "more demanding." :-)

You could just install it.

E’s modernism is diametrically opposed to Linux Mint’s famous conservatism. But as a user-maintained toy desktop environment, why not…

That would work for me :-)
I will contact you....

So why not we users create and maintain one E version of Mint?

E is a great environment. But this idea has been posted several times, everytime rejected for the same reason. There is no resource available to create and maintain one more variant of desktop spin
