PostPosted: Sat 17 Sep 2011, 11:39    Post subject:  E16 Window Manager
Subject description: Minimalistic, customizable and lightweight window manager
 

Here's E16, the more-retro and lighter brother of E17 we all appreciate and love Very Happy

Sources are here, I tried to upload them but the forums won't let me ... grrrr Crying or Very sad

It's about the same size as Fluxbox, but has many nice things like its built-in compositor, fast scaling and Epplets Smile

Built on dpup, should work on Lucid and maybe also on Slacko. The sources are 100% vanilla except a small modification to /usr/share/e16/scripts/e_menu_gen that adds menu entries for reboot and poweroff and adds Puppy icon paths.

Many think it's dead, but it's totally wrong - development is active and I think it's a very nice window manager.

In order to run E16 you'll need imlib2 and E16 itself; the Epplets package provides lightweight desktop widgets and the e16-docs one provides documentation and E16's nice help viewer, which has the best window manager documentation I've ever seen.

I tried E17 on slacko, but it didn't work.
Maybe this one will.

E17 did work on lucid and on next.

I installed imlib2-1.4.5.pet and e16-1.0.9.pet in Fluppy 13. Nothing else.
As far as I see the start of E16 is starte16, but the link is broken.
So I don't seem to be able to start E16

I tried e16 now in slacko B4.
The desktop of JWM is transformed in a background picture as non of the displayed icons are click-able. When clicking on one, the menu is displayed to choose applications from.

I installed epplets pet and saw briefly something of utilities.
But I see nothing in the utilities referring to epplets.
Also hovering on the epplets entry, nothing is shown.

I also looked in the settings to find how I could activate a system tray or other shelves (like in E17) but don't find it. Maybe this isn't implemented.

Otherwise pretty snappy in B4.

I must have had sand in the eyes.
Right click gives settings and desktop gives the options to create a system tray and icon box.
However I don't see how I can hide those and unhide when touching the screen edge.

Lowrider,
You have to report in which puppy version this works. Evil or Very Mad

Very Happy Hello,
Beem, you need to kill the Rox pinboard..
In a terminal:

rox -p=

That will fix the layering...

I have installed e16 on Precise Puppy 5, and it works great with one exception: I don't have the Puppy menu. How do I get the Puppy menu to show up in e16?

hi john_e_w

hmm

Haven't tried this one and it's been quite awhile since I did my original e16 from a bunch of packages. Try looking in ~/.e16 and follow the menu trail if there's no 'easy' menu converter. Syntax is pretty easy to follow if you have to build it manually using ~/.jwmrc as a guide. If you just can't get started with what's there, I've sent you a pm with an attached archive of what I have in my precise (sample only since my menu is a trifle customized but pretty close to a traditional pupmenu).

One of the nice things about e16 (and icewm) is it doesn't show 'dead' menu entries so you rarely need to comment-out junk.

Not sure about Iguleder's build, but my e16 is left-click for the apps/pupmenu, right-click is all the e16 config-o-rama+ Wink

oya, welcome to the kennels!
