The Enlightenment Desktop is an open source product of research at Red Hat Software (The Gnome Desktop) and a loose consortium of independent developers (The Enlightenment Window Manager). It's an attractive and powerful desktop (see Figure 7.3). Figure 7.3 The Gnome Enlightenment Desktop. Figure 7.3 The Gnome Enlightenment Desktop. Enlightenment also features the full complement of desktop functionality described earlier in the chapter. Using configuration menus, it is easy to add your own applications and define new actions. Enlightenment is currently Red Hat's favored desktop and the default installed by the 6.0 distribution. It is less mature than KDE, and my own experience suggests that it's still rough around the edges but that will undoubtedly improve. Enlightenment is available from http www.enlightenment.org. It relies on the Gnome product, available from http www.gnome.org. Both are shipped with Red Hat 6.0 and available as Red Hat packages (enlightenment, gnome-core, and a...
Enlightenment is one of the more advanced window managers. It offers many features not found on the traditional interfaces, such as desktop settings, themes, user menus, and more. Figure 4-8 Enlightenment shows off one of its helpful features. Figure 4-8 Enlightenment shows off one of its helpful features. Another unique characteristic of this window manager is its use of themes. Most of the window managers don't make use of themes. The default installation only comes with the one theme, but you can download and install more through the Enlightenment Web site at www.enlightenment.org.
Besides konsole, there are other terminal windows you can use such as xterm (basic terminal emulator that comes with the X Window System) or gnome-terminal (terminal emulator delivered with the GNOME desktop). The Enlightenment desktop project offers the eterm terminal (which includes features such as message logs on the screen background).
The Gnome project, which was started in 1997, is the brainchild of programmer whiz Miguel de Icaza. Gnome provides a complete set of software libraries and clients. Gnome depends on a window manager that is Gnome-aware. This means that to provide a graphical desktop with Gnome elements, the window manager must be written to recognize and use Gnome. Some compliant window managers that are Gnome-aware include Compiz (the default Gnome window manager in Ubuntu), Enlightenment, Metacity, Window Maker, IceWM, and beryl.
The advantage of using one of these sites is that you have access to the Linux kernel and root file system that have been tested with the board and at the same time have access to a group of engineers who are working with the same hardware and software platform, because most vendor sites include a mailing list or web-based forum for support. Depending on the enlightenment of the hardware vendor
The first section of this chapter, What's a Desktop Graphical Environments for Linux, discussed the differences between window managers and desktops, and hinted at the fact that more X Window system window managers are available than you could shake a stick at. Popular window managers include After Step, Black Box, Compiz, Enlightenment, Fluxbox, Fvwm, ICEwm, kwm, Metacity, twm, vtwm, and Window Maker, but there are many, many more.
Enlightenment This is a window manager that's designed with maximum graphical configuration in mind it's possible to make Enlightenment look like just about anything. It was the default window manager in GNOME 1.0 and 1.1. The Enlightenment Web site is http www .enlightenment.org.
That being said, GNOME offers the richest, most configurable desktop currently available for Linux. GNOME even allows you to change window managers to change the look and feel of the desktop. Although the default window manager for GNOME is Enlightenment (http www.enlightenment.org ), there are many other window managers available
One of KDE's aims is to provide users with a consistent integrated desktop, where all applications use GUI interfaces (see Figure 9-1). To this end, KDE provides its own window manager (kwm), file manager (Konqueror), program manager, and desktop panel (Kicker). You can run any other X Window System-compliant application, such as Netscape, in KDE, as well as any Gnome application. In turn, you can also run any KDE application, including the Konqueror file manager, with any other Linux window manager, including Blackbox, Afterstep, and even Enlightenment. You can even run KDE applications in Gnome.
With a window manager, you can think of a window as taking the place of a command line. Operations you perform through the window are interpreted and sent to the Linux system for execution. Window managers operate off the underlying X Window System, which actually provides the basic window operations that allow you to open, move, and close windows as well as display menus and select icons. FVWM2 and AfterStep manage these operations, each in its own way, providing their own unique interfaces. The advantage of such a design is that different window managers can operate on the same Linux system. In this sense, Linux is not tied to one type of graphical user interface (GUI). On the same Linux system, one user may be using the FVWM2 window manager, another may be using the Xview window manager, and still another the Enlightenment window manager, all at the same time. You can find out detailed information about different window managers available for Linux from the X11 Web With a window...
It's a powerful, easy to configure environment which helps to make your computer easy to use. enlightenment -- (Version 0.15.5, 3,835K) Enlightenment is a window manager for the X Window System that is designed to be powerful, extensible, configurable and pretty darned good looking It is one of the more graphically intense window managers. Enlightenment goes beyond managing windows by providing a useful and appealing graphical shell from which to work. It is open in design and instead of dictating a policy, allows the user to define their own policy, down to every last detail. This package will install the Enlightenment window manager.
A choice of many experienced Linux users is Enlightenment (www.enlightenment.org). Technically speaking, Enlightenment is a window manager, which means it provides just the basics of the user interface. Users must therefore source extras, such as a file manager, from third parties (although the Konqueror and Nautilus programs from GNOME and KDE can be used, of course). Those who want the totally stripped-down experience will appreciate IceWM (www.icewm.org), where features are sacrificed for simplicity and, to paraphrase the official web site, simplicity is offered in order to stop the interface from getting in the user's way. Like Enlightenment, IceWM is a window manager, rather than a desktop environment, so it supplies just the basics of the user interface. In terms of the user experience, both Enlightenment and IceWM introduce radical and innovative concepts to the Linux desktop, and so the learning curve can be a little steep. They're certainly not clones of Windows and or Mac OS...
Well, not exactly cosmic nothingness. The last bit shifted out of the left end of the binary number is bumped into a temporary bucket for bits called the Carry flag, generally abbreviated as CF. The Carry flag is one of those informational bits gathered together as the EFlags register, which I described in Chapter 7. You can test the state of the Carry flag with a branching instruction, as I'll explain a little later in this chapter. If you shift a bit into the Carry flag and then immediately execute another shift instruction, that first bit will be bumped off the end of the world and into cosmic nothingness.
That said, if a bit's destiny is not to be lost in cosmic nothingness, you need to use the rotate instructions rcl, rcr, rol, and ror instead. The rotate instructions are almost identical to the shift instructions, but with a crucial difference a bit bumped off one end of the operand reappears at the opposite end of the operand. As you rotate an operand by more than one bit, the bits march steadily in one direction, falling off the end and immediately reappearing at the opposite end. The bits thus ''rotate'' through the operand as the rotate instruction is executed.
The fastest way to do this is simply to shift BL to the right by four bits. This is what the shr bl,4 instruction does. The low nybble is simply shifted off the edge of BL, into the Carry flag, and then out into cosmic nothingness. After the shift, what was the high nybble in BL is now the low nybble.
Text for Output, has recipes on creating PostScript output from text, including outputting text in a font. People have written PostScript template files for creating all kinds of documents--from desktop calendars to mandalas for meditation. The Debian cdlabelgen' and cd-circleprint' packages contain tools for writing labels for compact discs. Also of interest are Jamie Zawinski's templates for printing label inserts for video and audio tapes edit the files in a text editor and then view or print them as you would any PostScript file. sf WWW http www.jwz.org audio-tape.ps sf WWW http www.jwz.org video-tape.ps
The next step on your path to gcc enlightenment is to understand how to compile programs using multiple source files. Let's say you have a program consisting of two source files, foo.c and bar.c. Naturally, you would use one or more header files (such as foo.h) containing function declarations shared between the two programs. In this way, code in foo.c knows about functions in bar.c, and vice versa.
As a warning, here is the story of the obsessive system administrator who bind-mounted home to be able to work effectively within the pbuilder chroots. After a particularly rough day, he logs in to his pbuilder chroot and executes thecommand that cures the senses and the soul, and paves the path to enlightenment rm -rf . Knowing that pbuilder chroots are not persistent, he sits back, takes a deep breath, and feels as if a giant stone had been lifted from his chest until he finds out that the bind-mounted home directory inside the chroot is in fact the same as the one holding all his data.
The desktop or window manager you start is the default window manager set up by your Linux distribution when you installed your system. Many distributions now use either Gnome or KDE as their default. For Gnome and the K Desktop, different window managers are used kwm for the K Desktop and sawfish for Gnome. You can run Gnome or KDE applications on most window managers. To have Gnome use a particular window manager, you need to select it using the Gnome Control Center. You can also use a window manager in place of kwm for KDE. Check the window manager's Web site for current information on Gnome and KDE compatibility. Currently, Enlightenment is fully Gnome compliant, and AfterStep and Window Maker are nearly so. Red Hat only provides Enlightenment on its Publisher's Edition, and Window Maker is added for its Standard Edition.
Yes, there are many window managers to choose from. Some people like the flashiness of Enlightenment, running with KDE or GNOME, while others prefer the spartan wm2---the choice is yours. enlightenment Enlightenment is a graphics-intensive window manager that uses desktop themes for decorating the various controls of the X session. sf Debian enlightenment' sf WWW http www.enlightenment.org
Hello and welcome to the 2003 Edition of the Advanced Linux Pocketbook. Last month we gave you the updated Linux Pocketbook, so by nowyou should be an old hand when it comes to the basics installing software, configuring settings, and connecting to other machines. You should be at least savvy when it comes to the command line, even if you can't do much more than manipulate files. Grep should be in your bag of tricks, and your fingers should gravitate to the '1' and's' keys automatically when you sit idle at the console. If you're keen to learn how to make the most out of Linux, you're in the right place. While the first book dealt with how to get Linux up and running on your system, this Advanced Pocketbook develops your skills from there. Remember back to when you installed your first Linux distribution and looked up to the geeks that seemed to know so much more about this obscure yet powerful operating system. They dazzled you with talk of Python scripts, pages built using PHPNuke,...
Although it may seem, at first glance, that working with Linux requires years of hands-on experience, tons of trial and error, advanced computer science training, and intense dedication, take heart It's not true If you can tell somebody how to find your office, you can certainly build a Linux system that does what you want. The purpose of this book isn't to turn you into a fullblown Linux geek (that's the ultimate state of Linux enlightenment, of course) it's to show you the ins and outs that you need to master in order to build a smoothly functioning Linux system and to give you the know-how and confidence to use it.
However, desktop functionality, such as drag-and-drop capabilities and the GNOME workspace switcher (discussed later), works only with window managers that are GNOME-compliant. The current release of GNOME uses the Metacity window manager. It is completely GNOME-compliant and is designed to integrate with the GNOME desktop without any duplication of functionality. Other window managers such as Enlightenment, IceWM, and Window Maker can also be used. Check a window manager's documentation to see if it is GNOME-compliant.
The installation of the GUI, or graphical user interface, is the next part of the installation process. Often, you configure a GUI interface in Linux by using XFree86, which is a freely redistributable Open Source implementation of the X Window System that runs on UNIX, Linux, versions of BSD, Mac OS X (Darwin), Solaris for the x86 platform, and OS 2. XFree86 is the base software that provides the support between the hardware and graphical user interface. The KDE, GNOME, Enlightenment, Blackbox, AfterStep, twm and fvwm windows managers all run XFree86 as the interface to provide hardware support. The ability of Xfree86 to provide hardware support is constantly being updated by the XFree86 Project, Inc., located at www.xfree86.org, and currently provides support for not only the x86 platform, (hence the X in Xfree86), but also for Alpha, PowerPC, Sparc, and in-the-works MIPS CPUs. As Xfree86 has evolved, it has provided better and better support for more variations of hardware, and...
Vendors offering devices for the Multimedia Users group have a preexistent and ready-made market growing out of the current market for smart phones. Although multimedia is most often associated with images, text, and music, it can also mean application programs that integrate data from a broad spectrum of independent sources. Probably the best known and most popular application that does this for mobile devices is Canola. It is built using Python and the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL), and it uses a plug-in system to enable YouTube, Flicker, and more. There are Google Summer of Code 2009 projects approved to create plug-ins for Twitter, Remember the Milk, and even an IM client.
Unlike C, which is converted into machine code that really isn't too different from what you actually write (the language has been described as Assembler with delusions of grandeur ), your PHP program is being run by a virtual machine simulated by the PHP engine. When it comes to performance tuning, this can make for difficulties because it becomes that much harder to predict what will work well and what will not. This will be examined later, but for now you may wish to meditate on the results of the following test code
During the past year, GNOME has reached majority rule status, with 53 of you electing it your favorite desktop environment. This trend is despite the breakneck development of KDE 4 during the past year. Although GNOME garnered only a few more votes than it did in 2008, KDE's vote count slipped as you've warmed to Xfce, Fluxbox and Enlightenment. The long and influential coattails of Ubuntu can only make any presidential candidate green with envy.

One of these window manager derivatives is known as Enlightenment. It happens to be the default window manager for the GNOME desktop environment on the gOS operating system, a derivative of Ubuntu that is installed on some PCs sold by Walmart. With Enlightenment, gOS works on top of GNOME to provide a look and feel closer to current Macintosh operating systems.
A widget set which is part of the Enlightenment suite is Elementary. This is well suited for embedded devices as it has a small footprint and, although it is a small API, it is one which can be entirely themed using the power of Edje. This makes it very attractive for device manufacturers looking to highly customize a device. Packages for Ubuntu are available from http packages.enlightenment.org. Add deb jaunty main extras to your etc apt sources.list and then install elementary
