Out of the darkness comes Enlightenment

Software

Although KDE is my work horse, every day, desktop environment, I enjoy testing different environments from time to time. Enlightenment is one environment that I had wanted to try for a while.

I remember seeing some beautiful Enlightenment screen shots about 10 years ago. However, at the time, installing it was not an easy task. And frankly, KDE fulfilled all my needs on a DE. However, my admiration for Enlightenment has never really gone away. So, I was glad when I heard that PCLinuxOS had a release sporting this DE. Knowing how easy it is to install and maintain a PCLinuxOS desktop, I thought this may be the time to finally give Enlightenment a try. And I was right.

I have only started playing with it, so don’t expect a deep review. I only want to highlight the beauty of the environment and the good job the PCLinuxOS team did in customizing it for their distro.

I could read just enough code to identify the problem, but not enough to actually fix it. Read more
