The unpleasent way:
Go to the folder of the theme:

cd /root/.enlightenment/themes/darkone

Search for the font-entries:
grep -rin Vera.*/ *

This lists all files with linenumbers, that contain the Vera -font.
Edit those lines with an editor, for example from Vera/7 to Vera/10

--------------------
Maybe easier:
Change the Font-Resolution of the Xserver:
Puppy - Control Panel - set global Font-size
--------------------
Maybe also possible:
Replace
/usr/share/enlightenent/themes/winter/ttfonts/Vera.ttf
and
/usr/share/enlightenent/themes/winter/ttfonts/VeraBd.ttf
with other ones.

Most of my themes (will) use these fonts, so if you replace them, you can affect most themes at once.
--------------------
We might need a script, that can replace font-sizes...

I found a severe memory-bug in the menu-editor, that could delete your menu.

Please update!
*removed*

----
Expect a "complete" Enlightenment next week.
I could automate/customize the setup, so it will be more"newbee-friendly" Razz

Now some more testing and Addon-scripts.

Q: "When will E17 be finished?"
A: "When Duke Nukem forever is released" Wink

No, E17 (CVS) already is nice.
You can use an August-release in Puppy:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=5312

But as you can see, it is 40MB compressed (though I ripped out 20 MB).
Compared to that, E16 is a miniature with 1.2 MB + Themes.

And at moment, E16 is more userfriendly than E17, that misses some things, and where Addon-programs like menu-editors might not work any more in the next release due to Api-changes.

But the size really is the ko-criterium, so I'll stay with E16 Smile

I am having a very hard time trying to download files from
dotpups.de. I can't seem to get onto the server at all. Is anyone here in the states hosting these files?

I hope.

Rhino, when I saw the lizard theme I laughed. That one is funny.

I updated the menueditor-Dotpup with the documentation.
Though it takes 150 kb, it is important.
Without the nice screenshots I would not know, how you can create submenus.

Thanks MU. That site works for me. The other one just wouldn't let me in. I thought it was justeveryone chomping at the bit to get enlightenment, but after a couple of weeks, I decided that I needed to try something else.

Here is a Testversion of the "all-in-one-Enlightenment".

http://dotpups.de/dotpups/WindowManagers/Enlightenment-DR16/enlightenment-16-for-Puppy.pup (13 MB)

Requires approx. 20 MB (plus the Dotpup, plus temporary space), so be shure to have at least 50 MB free Diskspace.

It includes Menueditor, Puppymenu, Expose, some addon-scripts and Buttons, Imlib2, and several optimized themes.

If you already have an older version, please delete or rename /root/.enlightenment.
This makes shure, the setup-script works best.

If you are new to E16, install this Dotpup after the first one:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/WindowManagers/Enlightenment-DR16/enlightenment-16-for-Puppy-MUs-config.pup (800 kb)

It is a preconfigured folder /root/.enlightenment
Although my setup-script helps keeping things easy, not everything can be automated.
So this does the "last optimization".
To see your own Dotpups in the Main-menu, first click on "reload Puppy-menu".

After installation, exit X (hit CTRL-ALT-Backspace).
In the prompt,type:
xwin enlightenment

If it does not work, simply type
xwin jwm
to go back to your Puppy-Desktop.

I hope I forgot nothing - but keep in mind, it is a Testrelease.
So expect it might not work, and report errors you encounter.

I did not add new Rox-icons,.as customizing E16 itself took all my time.

Small addon for the "All-in-one-Enlightenment" (8 kb):
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/WindowManagers/Enlightenment-DR16/e16-iBar-Editor01.pup

Written in PuppyBasic, it allows to alter the entries (the programs to run) for the Iconbar.

I could not find a way to show the icon bar in the virtual desktops. I don't know if it is a bug, a "feature", or if I'm just missing something. Other than that, I really like this window manager! It seems to have a good balance between looks and performance.

To hide the launchbar, click with the middle mousebutton on the "Puppy"-Button on the top left.

Or rename
/root/.enlightenment/ibar/ibarbuttons.cfg.
I could add a small menu-entry for that.

dwv86:
The bar is visible in a virtual Desktop, but not in a multiple Desktop.
I don't know how to change that.
Multiple Desktops also have other disadvantages, for example shadows don't work in them.
You could use more virtual Desks instead of multiple Desks (middle click Desktop for Options-menu).

The replies tell me it works?
Then I might move the final version without further changes this weekend from the "testing"-folder to the "windowmanagers"-folder.

Any more suggestions/wishes?

Am I supposed to have icons on my other desktops or even on the virtual workspaces? I do not. It is not really a problem since I still have the menu.

Also, I ran into the problem to the epplets column on the menu being too long due to the icons...so I manually just removed the icon link and replaced it it with NULL in the appropriate file and it seems to work well.
