As has been posted to death on numerous forums, enlightenment is at E17 from Debian sources. It cannot be installed via tasksel, but can be by apt-get install
Various people desire E>17 for various reasons, one being kicking the tires of Wayland.
As a test I tried the instructions on a Debian testing Sparky install on an Atom with 1Gb. Instructions are athttps://www.enlightenment.org/distros/debian-start
One more thing needs to be installed libpoppler-cpp0v5, I also installed libpoppler-cpp-dev
It does take awhile to compile, it gives some wicked error messages when it is compiling terminology. The compile listed at that E web site does not give the proper flags to compile with wayland and weston support, but, but, I did a reboot and I could mouse down to enlightenment in sddm and voila, There it is. And terminology works. One well crafted script.
Considering that the web site listed above is probably focused on debian stable and prior to the gcc and other major changes, that is quite impressive.
Enlightenment is not my DE of choice. But if people want to grow and learn why not use this thread or start a new one about what flags to use, what works, what doesn't.
EDITED: addition. PackRat posted at VSIDO http://vsido.org/index.php?topic=416.msg13428#new
I do not
know much about the repositiory. I do not
know if it will work with changing one word in the line to "testing" from "unstable" I have read things and interpreted them that testing Wayland in a VM is not much of a test, the true test is on bare metal. I would be tempted to try it on an old computer, but I do not have the time.
