| so, in this post we are going to list top ten 
| fluxbox themes for light themes and other dark 
| themes


E17 review

,----[ Quote ]
| Enlightenment has been quite interesting to me. 
| It has not even got a beta release so far yet I 
| like to use it. That is because, it does things 
| differently. It is very efficient, keeps the 
| CPU far more cooler than any other desktop 
| environment, has nice effects already built-in, 
| and is far snappier than most mainstream 
| desktop environments [I am not interested in 
| comparisions here; so I won't point to any 
| other desktop environment in particular.].
| [...]
| Overall, E17 is nice. It is nice to note that 
| E17 keeps with latest development in software. 
| For now, it is bleeding edge; however I suggest 
| give it a shot before believing anything about 
| it. Its a nice experience.



How to theme Enlightenment E17

,----[ Quote ]
| Before we go on it would be best to point out a couple of outstanding
| locations to find themes. There are two sites that house plenty of E17 eye
| candy (there used to be three main sites until Freshmeat dumped themes â BOO
| HISS!). Those sites are: Get-E and E17 Stuff. The latter has far more themes,
| but the formerâs themes are much more interesting.



Get to know Linux: Enlightenment E17

,----[ Quote ]
| I have been recently covering various Linux desktops. So far you can read
| about Fluxbox, Xfce 4, Window Maker, and IceWM. I also touched on creating
| dropshadows with xcompmgr and transparent windows with transset. If you have
| been reading me long enough, then you know my favorite Linux desktop is the
| Enlightenment desktop. I have been using this desktop for quite some time and
| have never felt it lacked for anything in the desktop space.


7 E17 Linux & BSD Distributions

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE4 is not the only desktop environment which provides a sleek eye candy
| experience. E17 still remains to be one of the only Desktop
| Environments/Window Manager, which provides a speedy and visually pleasing
| experience. There are some Linux and BSD distros which use E17 to provide an
| attractive and speedy operating system, where many seem to be unique compared
| to many KDE, Gnome and XFCE distros...


E17 now available in Entropy

| Now e17 is installed and you can enjoy it by selecting "enlightenment" from
| the sessions menu in the login screen.


8 Beautiful Themes For Enlightenment WM

,----[ Quote ]
| Enlightenment is perhaps the least known and the oldest Windows manager still
| being actively developed. KDE and Gnome (Desktop Environments) made their
| first release few years after Enlightenment had its first release way back in
| 1996. Enlightenment features an iconbar, which the âDockâ of  OS X is based
| on, and is quite different from the traditional WM and DE that we are used
| to. The current version, E17, has been in development since 2000 with slow
| update cycles and perhaps one of the reason why it is not as widely adopted
| as other WM and DE out there. Earlier version of gOS was based on E16-17
| (they moved to gnome). Elive, OpenGEU and Maryan Linux are three distribution
| that has Enlightenment installed by default.


Special dev version 1.9.22-based with Compiz released

,----[ Quote ]
| Have you ever dreamed of Compiz-like effects in Enlightenment 17 ?
| After a good number of previous testing versions, reports, fixes, and
| features added, Elive finally releases the special version with E17 running
| over Compiz (ecomorph).
| Do you want more details? Just watch the video and see what it looks like!

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
