That is a nice wallpaper, Cygnus. I also like the simple row of icons at the bottom.

How resource intensive is Enlightenment compared to the small Window Managers like IceWM or JWM? How can you tell?

At what specs would this Window Manager become too slow?

rhino i can tell you that on my 300mhz 192mb ram celeron the speed of jwm and enligh is the same.
the memory used is 10mb highter with enlightenment..
and unless u turn on the effects (ripples and waves) even the cpu seems as low as jwm.

Theme-mix of Azteker2000/Azteker, heavily overworked.



Big Screenshot: http://dotpups.de/dotpups/WindowManagers/e16-themes/azteker2000-mu.jpg

The launchbar on the left is part of the Theme, I "puppyfied" the entries.

Aqua-Theme

This made some problems.
As the windows have no border, it just looks good, if you activate shadows for your Xserver.
But then you got a "corrupted" Top-bar with the original theme from freshmeat.net.
You could see, that the menu was made up of small grafics, each dropping shadows.
So I removed the menu from the Topbar.
But tobe able, to keep the round corners on the top-bar, I had to use 1 picture of fixed witdh - so this just looks good with a resolution of 1024 pixel width.
For other resolutions you must edit
/root/.enlightenment/themes/Aqua-mu/buttons/images/macos-logo.png in mtpaint or Gimp.

I also get some small artifacts with shadows enabled.

Ok, could reduce/remove the artifacts over the titlebars.
Uploaded the theme again.

The 'button' icons on Rhino's Cheetah desktop are great! Are they available for download somewhere?

I updated these 3 themes.

*removed*
Aqua-mu.pup
azteker2000-mu.pup
darkone-mu.pup

Changes to all:
fixed Display-errors when shadows are activated.

New in Azteker:
A "Puppy-Button".
It can display the tasklist, the main-menu, or toggle the visibility of the launchbar.
I also changed the menufont, as though the old one looked cool, it was difficult to read.

Shocked that's strange...

Try
middleclick to Desktop -> maintainance - purge all caches.
Then logout X and restart xwin.

If that does not help, you might delete the whole folder /root/.enlightenment
But this will delete your personal settings, too.

Then E will start with afresh configuration.

How do you change the font size in the different themes? The menu fonts seem small and hard to read for these old eyes.

I am currently running the shade theme and it seems the mods are endless with enlightenment!

Great....more hours trying to figure out another toy Laughing
