See this

This was taken when i was using Gnometal icons. The rendering isn't that great due to not enoiugh memory which wil, be taken care of shortly

The application is called engage.

does this work with kde?

jim
18th May 2005, 03:26 PM
what work with KDE ?

engage ?
I would say so
from http://get-e.org/User_Guide/English_pages/4.2.html
Standalone Engage specific information:


The standalone Engage should work in almost any windowmanager, except E17.

I mean a styles , icons etc.

jim

I installed Engage and got it working following Jim's guide. It was a bit of a nightmare. It's also pretty buggy and making the eapp files is something I won't even try. It runs quite quickly however.

jim
19th May 2005, 11:43 PM
Building the eapp files is really simple if you don't want to , I host them i have about 100 different eapp file so pick your poison.

I have Ubuntu installed on my notebook.

I had to compile and build the WHOLE E17 framework from scratch. Talk about a nightmare
Be glad that Fedoera Core users can yum install engage and everything esle.

May I ask whata engage is and what it does?

Thanks for the help...

coxis
22nd May 2005, 01:34 PM
Engage is a dock , like Mac OS X dock.
It starts apps ....

24th May 2005, 08:39 AM
How do I get engage? What site do I go to? I am running fc4, so I think that I would need the source tarballs? Please do not move this post as it is relevant to this thread?

Thanks for the help....

jim
24th May 2005, 11:43 AM
See my other post in this thread # 13

The latest build from the CVS in which Didier built engage from has a problem. When the CVS is updated, didier said he will build a new set of rpms. take a peek at his site
http://sps.nus.edu.sg/~didierbe/fedora/3/en/i386/RPMS.e17/ and make sure the rpms are dated AFTER 5-29-2005 within the name of the rpm. I had already chatteed with him about this so it should only be a few days before everything is fixed !

coxis

I just tried the latest rpms and still the same problem I emailed didier about thios along with a strace. So hopefully someone can get to the bottom of this.. I don't use panels in gnome So off to E as intended

If you installed Enlightenment ( which i think you need to) in order to have engage.
try switchdesk enlightenment

once enlightenment opens open a terminal window and enter this
enlightenment_remote -module-load engage

It should use the .order file you have.

jim
5th June 2005, 03:42 PM
Here is the fix

rpms dated 20050603 require the following rpms installed
esmart-devel, imlib2-devel, edje-devel, ecore-devel, evas-devel
ewl-devel, enlightenment-devel, embryo-devel, emotion-devel

So a simple

sudo yum --enablerepo=Didier -y install esmart-devel imlib2-devel edje-devel ecore-devel evas-devel ewl-devel embryo-devel emotion-devel enlightenment-devel


should get everything for you

jim
5th June 2005, 06:39 PM
See the tutorial now I updated it to reflect the changes. Ther is also a text file link to compare the rpms you have installed against the ones I have installed

5th June 2005, 06:43 PM
Ok i take a look at toturial

I don't know what is new in toturial.

I just do the yum stuff from 28post.

coxis
5th June 2005, 06:59 PM
Ok it works :

I've just add :

yum --enablerepo=Didier -y install esmart-devel imlib2-devel edje-devel ecore-devel evas-devel ewl-devel embryo-devel emotion-devel enlightenment-devel

Thanx very much :)

I finally got Engage up and running and I am thrilled so far. I wanted to know how do I make icons for new programs? Like DVD Shrink that I run through Wine; how would I get an icon for that in Engage?

So, now what did I download, and what does it do :) hahahahahaha Sorry, I am new to Linux, and find it fun installing things and running things just to see what they do, so what does this do?

You just installed Enlightenment. It's another window manager, like Gnome or KDE. You can log into it by changing you 'Session' from the GDM Login screen or by typing 'switchdesk enlightenment' in a terminal window.
