This wiki page is just a scratchpad for now. It may become a sort of howto, who knows?!? Actually, it's related to my Enlightenment installation on DEVUAN, so without systemd, pulseandio and similar bloatware
PS: pulseaudio is now needed for bluetooth to work, so unfortunately I'm still using it, but I'm working for a replacement using ALSA and some other stuff. Stay tuned!
http://devuan.org for more details on my distro without systemd bloatware!
Many thanks to the "e" IRC channel on Freenode for all the support I received and the patience to answer my silly questions!
Install from sources
apt-get install joe mc git build-essential autoconf autopoint check
(Yes, I use Joe as editor because I'm used to Wordstar commands since '80 Any editor can work )
As stated in https://www.enlightenment.org/docs/distros/start :
You will want to ensure the default prefix /usr/local is available to build tools. If you know what you are doing, you can change the prefix, but this here shall assume you do not, and the above prefix is used. These environment variables are used during build, so you may want to make them more permanent.
export PATH=/usr/local/bin:"$PATH" export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:"$PKG_CONFIG_PATH" export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:"$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
Below choose one of the following CFLAGS to use. To ensure your code is compiled with decent optimzations you should also set this up in your environment:
export CFLAGS="-O3 -ffast-math -march=native"
Note that if you wish to compile for older architectures than your current system, please look up the compiler documentation and replace -march=native with something appropriate.
If you wish decently optimized code that is still debuggable (but that optimizations may still make a little hard to debug) you can do:
export CFLAGS="-O2 -ffast-math -march=native -g -ggdb3"
If you want a really debuggable piece of code where optimizations mess with little to nothing at all use:
export CFLAGS="-O -g -ffast-math -march=native -ggdb3"
Runtime Library Linking
Note the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable is set. You can ensure the system always supports /usr/local/lib by editing /etc/ld.so.conf or adding a file to /etc/ld.so.conf.d and simply have a line in either file that says:
And remember to run sudo ldconfig tool every time you install a library to ensure caches are updated.
For libraries (build these before applications), build them in order:
Then any further applications or tools (in any order now) such as:
enlightenment terminology rage
git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/core/efl.git
(NOTA, da dentro una dir, se devi prelevare o aggiornare efl, per dire, fai solo "git pull" E BASTA) (guarda git howto)
Require: meson / ninja!
apt-get install python3-pip pip3 install meson apt install ninja-build pkg-config cmake libssl-dev libjpeg-dev zlib1g-dev libglib2.0-dev libdbus-1-dev libharfbuzz-dev libpoppler-cpp-dev libspectre-dev librsvg2-dev doxygen libssl-dev libjpeg-dev libsdl2-dev libluajit-5.1-dev libfribidi-dev libgif-dev libtiff-dev libmount-dev libblkid-dev libsndfile1-dev x11proto-print-dev libxtst-dev libbullet-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev libraw-dev libxcomposite-dev libtool libtool-bin libgstreamer1.0-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev gnutls-dev libwebp
Look at the meson_options.txt for opts to disable with -D as below!
And the final step is:
# CHECK IF YOU NEED Pulseaudio SHIT or not. here!\ meson --prefix=/usr/local -Dsystemd=false -Dpulseaudio=false -Davahi=false . build ninja -C build sudo ninja -C build install sudo ldconfig
And that's it!
BEWARE if you use that prefix, some libs will go in /usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ instead of /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ but that's missing in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/somewhere, so ldconfig won't found the libraries and the following compilations will FAIL with missing lib errors!
You need to add /usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/somewhere accordingly and do ldconfig again, as root.
git clone http://git.enlightenment.org/core/enlightenment.git/ # I need to disable PAM here? Dunno. -Dpam=false in case? meson --prefix=/usr/local -Dsystemd=false -Dpulseaudio=false -Davahi=false . build ninja -C build sudo ninja -C build install sudo ldconfig
git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/apps/terminology.git ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr/local # but he does exactly that after autogen.sh ;) make make install
ecrire, text editor
This doesn't use meson/ninja, it goes as follow:
git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/apps/ecrire.git mkdir build cd build cmake .. make make install
everything goes into /usr/local
Sudo apt install libast-dev git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/apps/eterm.git ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr/local make sudo make install
this goes in /usr/local by default
git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/apps/equate.git ./autogen.sh make sudo make install
wlan monitoring module
git clone http://git.enlightenment.org/enlightenment/modules/wlan.git ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr/local make sudo make install
cpu monitor module
git clone http://git.enlightenment.org/enlightenment/modules/cpu.git/ ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr/local make sudo make install
Some warnings here, dunno if it's ok.
git clone http://git.enlightenment.org/apps/rage.git/ ./autogen.sh ninja -C build sudo ninja -C build install
OLD - NOT NEEDED
connman / econnman
for econnman you need:
git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/bindings/python/python-efl.git apt-get install cython python setup.py build python setup.py install
git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/apps/econnman.git ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --localstatedir=/var make make install
apt-get install intltool openconnect libgtk-3-dev libgtk-3-0 git clone https://github.com/jgke/connman-gtk.git ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr/local make make install
just launch "connman-gtk"
connman isn't an E package, so apt-get install connman ! but warning, it does remove wicd! so do it when you're almost sure. apt-get autoremove will help clean out stuff.
or use packages by Martinx - ジェームズ (Devuan community)
Not needed if using the EFL from git.
git clone https://git.enlightenment.org/core/elementary.git
poi ./autogen.sh ./configure
Starting the whole thing
It's not automatic in Devuan, dunno why.
I installed lightdm. Also, I had to create this:
asbesto@rover:~$ cat /usr/share/xsessions/e.desktop [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Name=Enlightenment Comment=Use this session to run E as your desktop environment Exec=enlightenment_start Icon= Type=Application DesktopNames=Enlightenment asbesto@rover:~$
and now lightdm see it as a dm.
Tap to click - scroll bar shit
Added into InputClass section of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf :
Option "TapButton1" "1" Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
Repositories for E18/E19 ?
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:niko2040/e19 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install enlightenment
To disable edge flipping, open the Settings Panel, go to the Input tab, and select Edge Bindings. You can disable all the edge bindings there. If you use /usr/local: Your installation prefix is *NOT* /usr so this means you need to ensure some files are visible to dbus otherwise services cannot be started when needed. You will need to do the following: System-wide installation: ln -s /usr/local/share/dbus-1/services/org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service or add "/usr/local/share" to $XDG_DATA_DIRS User installation: ln -s /usr/local/share/dbus-1/services/org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service ~/.local/share/dbus-1/services/org.enlightenment.Ethumb.service In case of error: ./configure: line 8396: syntax error near unexpected token `win32-dll' ./configure: line 8396: `LT_INIT(win32-dll disable-static pic-only)' do root@rover:/home/asbesto/Desktop/src/e/efl# aclocal configure.ac:276: warning: macro 'AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION' not found in library configure.ac:285: warning: macro 'AM_GNU_GETTEXT' not found in library configure.ac:374: warning: macro 'AM_PATH_LIBGCRYPT' not found in library and root@rover:/home/asbesto/Desktop/src/e/efl# autoreconf -i configure.ac:285: warning: The 'AM_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro is deprecated, and its use is discouraged. configure.ac:285: You should use the Autoconf-provided 'AC_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro instead, configure.ac:285: and use '$(MKDIR_P)' instead of '$(mkdir_p)'in your Makefile.am files. and try again. IT DOESNT WORK. FUCK THAT SHIT edita configure alla riga 8396 e leva la merda di riga, che non c'entra un cazzo, rilancia configure and you see that works. ma anche installa libtool e libtool-bin, root@rover:/home/asbesto/Desktop/src/e/efl# apt-get install libtool libtool-bin poi ridai questo: autoheader \ && aclocal \ && libtoolize --ltdl --copy --force \ && automake --add-missing --copy \ && autoconf \ && ./configure con tutte le tue opzioni del cazzo Those are unnecessary, graphic acceleration will be use automagically if available. --enable-fb enable raw Framebuffer access.
