    Move over OSX, E17 is here

    And I thought Fluxbox was quick. E17 from CVS is as smooth as butter and has better visuals then gnome or kde. The drop shadows that E renders doesn't slow down my machine horribly like xcompmgr. I highly recommend people to try it out. Next on my list of things to do is get icons working for engage and install evidence.

    I can't wait until the code is stable. The next gen desktop for linux is here. :smile:

    I've been waiting a long time for E17 to become stable. I love E16 (my primary desktop environment). It's fast--as fast as IceWM if not faster, and I like the clean uncluttered desktop. I swung by the enlightenment site a few weeks back just to see what was happening and I saw they had added xine and a few other nifty things to the environment.

    Maybe I'll give it a try. Thanks for the info.

    Is there a way to add programs to the fluxbox menu?

    Change the background?

    Been trying to figure how, if its possible but haven't been able to.

    To edit the fluxbox menu you need to change ~/.fluxbox/menu

    To change the background you need to change ~/.fluxbox/startup

    There are instructions within each file to do what you want.
