It's not a matter of reinventing the wheel. Elive has always used Enlightenment as it's DE.
Exton like AltLinux offers fully configured DEs slapped on to their base system to give people an idea on how they function.
AltLinux does a better job of the 2 IMO. It's based on RosaLinux which in turn is a Mandriva fork.
They've multiple versions on offer with many different DEs which gives anice comparison as to what could be possible and how they differ in RAM and CPU usage.
The big diff with Elive is that it will be totally built, including the base system to accommodate Enlightenment.
Another big diff is that Elive uses the latest Enlightenment builds, i.e E23 at the moment, opposed to E20 on the others.
I recently moved from thunderbird to Sylpheed and i'm really satisfied. I use email just for emails, so i don't care about syncing anything, so it's perfect. Moreover i love the get all button reminds me of hotmail when i was a child.
My screen now fades off to a black screen even when i am using the computor like screensaver is being deployed. I have to remove the power to turn it back on.
Tried compositor; Checked Don't fade backlight and the backlight adjuster but to no avail. screen backlight still fades to blackness
Have experienced that too. Unfortunately for me the link connects to the strongest signal which is a wifi intranet for security cams but has no internet. Then I cannot switch to the second wifi hotspot with internet unless i turn the first one off.
from time to time these dialogs needs a rework with a more intuitive setup, and sometimes there's duplications of features between the different modules, when they are pretty confusing I suggest to report them
Mmmh, are you sure that is not because you ahve it in your packages-to-maintain list? i don't think any connman package should be installed by default
No, I did a completely fresh install.
I had to manually install it myself, as usual as connman from the ibar does not show wifi APs nicely without it.
What's new (again) is that it at least shows up when you call it ..... which it didn't since a while ago.
"nm-applet --show" will still not show up on E23, I think it's a gdm thingy.
