Changes at Sparky Enlightenment settings

There is a small but important change in the Sparky’s default Enlightenment settings.
You can ignore this post if you have only Enlightenment desktop installed.

If you installed Sparky with Enlightenment with ‘sparky-desktop-enlightenment’ meta packages, via APTus or Minimal iso image, and have more than just the Enlightenment desktop installed – there is a conflict between connman+econnman and network-manager which is a dependency of all Sparky desktops (excluding Enlightenment).

To avoid such conflicts in the future, Sparky Enlightenemt uses network-manager gnome applet as default now (fresh installation via APTus or Minimal iso).

If you would like to change your existing Sparky’s Enlightenemt settings, do:
1. Make full system upgrade
sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade

2. Install the new settings:
sudo apt install sparky-e-run
3. Make sure connman is removed:
apt purge connman econnman ofono
4. Run APTus -> Dekstop -> Enlightenment icon to overwrite Enlightenment desktop settings.
5. Relogin to take effects.

The nm-applet loads to trayer in the right corner now.

Enlightenment on Sparky

 

Extra 0.0.1

There is a new, small application available in Sparky repos, for Enlightenment lovers: Extra 0.0.1.

Extra is a app which allows you to install elementary themes on your computer.
The app is based on elementary and uses efl libraries to download the theme.
It does so by fetching themes from extra.enlightenment.org.

Installation:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install extra

There is also a short entry about Extra in Sparky Wiki:

Enventor 1.0

 

Enventor 1.0.0 landed in Sparky repository.

Enventor is an EDC editor with some convenient functions. It was started near the beginning of June 2013, so expecting it to do everything a mature script editor does is a bit premature.

It is a visual EDC editor with real-time preview of the Edje file.
Does syntax highlighting, highlights relevant parts while editing.

Installation/upgrade from an older version:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install enventor

Demo:

 

Enlightenment 0.21.2

 

There is an update of Enlightenment 0.21.2 ready in Sparky repository now.

Make upgrade as usually:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

If you would like to make fresh installations, run:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install enlightenment

The present version of Enlightenment 0.21.2 uses EFL 1.18 and Python-EFL 1.18 (both available in our repos).

The ’emotion-generic-players’, ‘evas-generic-loaders’ and ‘elementary’ packages have been removed from Sparky repos already.

 

EFL 1.18.0

 

There is an update of EFL 1.18.0 ready in Sparky repository now.

Due to the Enlightenment’s developers changes, the ‘evas-generic-loaders’, ’emotion-generic-players’ and ‘elementary’ have been merged into the EFL package and they are no available (as separated packages) in Sparky repos any more.

There is no changes with installing Enlightenment, so do it as before:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install enlightenment

To upgrade EFL and other Enlightenment’s tools, do:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

It removes ‘evas-generic-loaders’, ’emotion-generic-players’ and ‘elementary’ automatically so no need any special users attention.

 

EDI 0.3.0

 

There is a new “E” tool available for the Enlightenment lovers, in our repository: EDI.

EDI – The Enlightened IDE is a project to create a complete IDE using the EFL.
It aims to lower the barrier to getting involved in Enlightenment development and in creating apps based on the EFL suite.

The binary ‘deb’ package of EDI is available for 64 bit systems only.
Installation:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install edi

Building for 32 bit failed.
Anyway, there is a source package available in our repos too (dsc, orig and debian archive) if you would like to build it yourself.

EDI

There is also a Wiki page of the EDI tool:
https://sparkylinux.org/wiki/doku.php/edi

All Sparky’s Enlightenment’s applications have been re-built to provide the present versions of dependencies (specially for the source packages) and to be compatible with the upcoming EFL 1.18.
