Big screenshot: http://dotpups.de/dotpups/WindowManagers/e16.jpg

Epplets:



This is a small, fast and beautifull Windowmanager.

It wants you to "think different", as some things don't work as in JWM, Puppys default-Desktop.

You can set several options in E16 with a RIGHT or MIDDLE-click to the Desktop or windows.
For example, that minimized windows are displayed as small screenshots (iconbox).
Or that the bottom of the screen moves like a sea (fx-waves).
Take some time, to explore all options.

Download
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=41023#41023

Tip:
to move borderless Windows like the Iconbox, click it, and hold the left ALT-Key.

Tip2:
As the iconbox just shows minimized windows, and there is no Taskbar, click with the middle mousebutton on the Topbar, to see a Window-list.
Or install fbpanel:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=3765
I also included an Mac-Expose-like window-overview.

Tip3:
If you use a Mousecurser-Dotpup, the less beautifull Enlightenment-cursors might disturb. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=2714
When you choose a new theme the first time, it is extracted to /root/.enlightenment/themes.
Simply delete all "cursors.cfg"-files there, and E16 does not use own cursors.

Tip4:
If you need Trayicons, try this Dotpup:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=4208
I don't know, if E16 itself supports trayicons.

Tip5:
If you want "Mac-like" icons (mouseover-effect), use tablaunch http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=3892

Thanks Mark Smile
This is probably as close to enlightenment as I will ever get.

You might say I am enlightened now . . .
What a strange place.

We have to use the full wxbasic (PuppyBasic is not enough?)
I used the full version because that is what is suggested
I downloaded and installed ALL the .pup including the themes
(I nearly got stuck in one just now - using the middle mouse button allowed me out)

I thought fluxbox was weird but this is something completely different . . .

I am assuming that
ctrl + alt + backspace
and
xstart jwm
will get me back to Kansas (or the default window manager)?

Something very different . . .

Code:
xstart JWM


xwin jwm
will do it.
Yes, the menu needs wxBasic, not Puppybasic.

Enlightenment is a typical UNIX-Desktop, for example the focus-handling is irritating for Windows-users.
One of the first things I have set up, is that a window raises, when I click into it.
I also enlarged the Iconbox, and the size of the mini-screenshots (thumbnails).

My mistake (JWM = jwm) corrected

I also could not work out how to turn on the PuppywxB_menu so it runs in Enlightenment? Will have to read your first post again . . .

I am not used to UNIX so this is very new - but very interesting. It also seems solid (so far anyways)

Be interested in how others get on . . . Cool

You can run the menu in /root/.xinitrc

Add before "exec $CURRENTWM" this line:
/usr/local/Puppy-wxB-menue-0.8/Puppy-wxB-menue &
Then it will start with Enlightenment.

Or click it in a ROX-window.
To start a ROX-window:
Click on the Desktop, -> User Application list -> XTerm
In xterm, type "rox".

WOW!!!

That is really teaching Puppy a new trick!

Small, fancy, different and sure to turn some heads about Linux.

That is remarkable...thanks for the dotpup. It will take some getting used to, but well worth it.

Try running the icons after installing the Dotpup, by typing in a XTerm:

/usr/local/DragnDrop-Icons/run-dnd &

If it works, add that command to /root/.xinitrc before the line "exec $CURRENTWM".

If you get an errormessage, please post it here.

My regular desktop icons seemto work just fine. I don't have sound set up to work properly yet, and I can get around the puppy menu by dragging the icons from Rox onto the desktop.

Any idea how to get it to use my sound?

Oh fine Rhino.
I just see, enlightenment had modified my /root/.xinitrc

If ROX-icons are not visible, open a Xterm, and type
leafpad /root/.xinitrc

Delete the line
exec /usr/bin/enlightenment

Then it should work with ROX-icons.

Nevermore, did you try the wxb-menu mentioned?
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=1985
It displays the entries from the JWM-menu.
