E17 is the Development Release 17 (DR17) of the Enlightenment Desktop Environment. It is currently under heavy development, and is in the pre-alpha stages, but is still quite stable. Many people use it as a day-to-day Environment.

Installing E17

From the community repository (SVN snapshots)

Note: Make sure the community repository is enabled in your Template:Filename.

To install e17:

pacman -S e-svn

To install additional e17 modules and applications:

pacman -S e17-extra-svn

You might also want to install additional Fonts, see recommended fonts for Desktop Environments in particular.

If you need/want an e17 package which is not (yet) available in [community], see if it is available in the AUR.

Warning: As e17 is still alpha software you are encouraged to keep packages of the previous version on your computer, allowing you to downgrade if needed.

Compiling and packaging with ArchE17 script

You can build your own Arch Linux e17 packages with a small python script called ArchE17.

Compiling with easy_e17.sh

Template:Codeline compiles E17 from source and installs it in Template:Filename. It does not create packages and therefore does not install dependencies automatically.

  1. Get it from the AUR: Template:Package AUR.
  2. Edit Template:Filename if you want.
  3. Run it as root to install E17:
    # easy_e17.sh -i
  4. Put Template:Filename in your Template:Codeline by editing Template:Filename. For example, you can add this line at the end of the file:

If you encounter any errors while trying to install E17, first check to make sure it isn't a dependency problem. If it is, install the dependency and continue installing e17.

To update E17 without using the program mentioned below, run this command as root:

# easy_e17.sh -u


Template:Codeline is a zenity script which is made to accompany Template:Codeline. It makes several aspects of updating e17 easier as it can backup and restore your E17 svn tree (in case there is breakage), as well as roll it back to a specific revision (again, in case of breakage) or even let you know when a new revision has come around on E17's svn tree. See this page for more information on this optional component. You can get it from the AUR: Template:Package AUR.

Starting E17

If you use Template:Codeline or a simple Display Manager like XDM or SLiM, add or uncomment the following command in xinitrc:

exec enlightenment_start

More advanced display managers like GDM and KDM will automatically detect E17 thanks to the Template:Filename file provided by the Template:Codeline package.

Installing Themes

More themes to customize the look of e17 are available from:

You can install the themes (coming in .edj format) from the configuration dialog.

You can also change the theme for the etk toolkit (the one which is used by exhibit). You can start the dialog to change the etk toolkit by starting Template:Codeline.


What happened to Entrance ?

Template:Codeline, a Display Manager based on the EFLs, is no longer maintained thus packages for it have been dropped.


If you find some unexpected behavior, there are a few things you can do:

  1. try to see if the same behavior exists with the default theme
  2. backup Template:Filename and remove it (e.g. Template:Codeline).

If you are sure you found a bug please report it directly upstream.


If X complains about X cursors not being available, install the Template:Package Official package.

Screen unlocking doesn't work

If screenlock does not accept your password add the following to Template:Filename:

auth required pam_unix_auth.so

Unreadable fonts

If fonts are too small and your screen is unreadable, be sure the right font packages are installed:

pacman -S ttf-ms-fonts ttf-dejavu ttf-bitstream-vera
