Enlightenment on openSUSE, now with profiles.

Hi all,

here is a quick update on whats going on for enlightenment on openSUSE, firstly we now have a working profile, it could do with some enhancements still, i would have liked to get a desktop and laptop profile the later with the backlight and battery monitor unfortunately i haven’t worked out how to disable them for desktop yet. I’d like to customise the apps in the iBar as well but i haven’t quite got there yet. If you have any feedback please let me know and i will try to incorporate it.

I am now working on a theme for openSUSE to match the current background and hopefully help enlightenment to fit in better with openSUSE. There should hopefully be some screen shots soon.

Unfortunately due to upstream issues i have had to roll e17 back to version 0.17.3 in openSUSE factory. This is to ensure that the version of e17 that makes it into openSUSE 13.1 is stable and easy to use for all users.  If fixes come out before the feature freeze i will update e17 again.

As a update currently i don’t see efl 1.8 and e18 being ready for openSUSE 13.1 but we already have packages building in our nightly repository if you are brave and want to try them out. Given they are coming directly from GIT they do break from time to time though.  The nightly repository is now back to almost the state it was before the update to 1.8 and the move to git, some themes arn’t building yet but everything else should be.

      Not easily, you could fork the e17 packages on obs and build them with a custom prefix like /opt/e1* or build them from source to there, e17 should work with the version of efl from the nightly repo.
      The other thing to be aware of is the config is completely different going from e17 to e18 so if you are going backwards make sure to backup your .e folder
