I installed the new enlightenment E17 window manager (emerge -av enlightenment:0.17).
It is just great and I would like to know if I can use ecomorph with it ?
And if yes, where do I find it ?

The only place I found it is in the "enlightenment" overlay, but I would have to install the enlightenment-9999 from the overlay since ecomorph-9999 depend on enlightenment-9999.

Code:
r2d2 package.mask # emerge -av x11-plugins/ecomorph x11-wm/ecomp

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N    #] x11-wm/ecomp-9999::enlightenment  USE="inotify jpeg nls -doc -static-libs" 0 kB
[ebuild     U #] x11-wm/enlightenment-9999:0.17/0.17::enlightenment [0.17.0:0.17/0.17.0::gentoo] USE="nls pam spell udev -doc -static-libs -ukit (-emotion%)" ENLIGHTENMENT_MODULES="backlight battery clock conf-applications conf-comp%* conf-dialogs conf-display conf-edgebindings conf-interaction conf-intl conf-keybindings conf-menus conf-paths conf-performance conf-randr conf-shelves conf-theme conf-wallpaper2%* conf-window-manipulation conf-window-remembers connman cpufreq dropshadow everything fileman fileman-opinfo gadman ibar ibox illume2 mixer msgbus notification pager quickaccess shot start syscon systray tasks temperature tiling winlist wizard xkbswitch -access -physics% (-comp%*)" 0 kB
[ebuild  N    *] x11-plugins/ecomorph-9999::enlightenment  USE="nls -doc -static-libs" 0 kB

Total: 3 packages (1 upgrade, 2 new), Size of downloads: 0 kB

The following keyword changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.accept_keywords" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
#required by @e17, required by @selected, required by @world (argument)
=x11-wm/enlightenment-9999 **

The following mask changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.unmask" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
#required by x11-wm/ecomp (argument)
# /etc/portage/package.mask/e17.mask:
=x11-wm/ecomp-9999
#required by @e17, required by @selected, required by @world (argument)
# /var/lib/layman/enlightenment/profiles/package.mask:
# Thomas Sachau <tommy@gentoo.org> (02 Dec 2012)
# Masking live ebuilds, which are broken by upstream
# moves/changes or have broken dependencies
# use the released versions instead
=x11-wm/enlightenment-9999

NOTE: The --autounmask-keep-masks option will prevent emerge
      from creating package.unmask or ** keyword changes.

Use --autounmask-write to write changes to config files (honoring
CONFIG_PROTECT). Carefully examine the list of proposed changes,
paying special attention to mask or keyword changes that may expose
experimental or unstable packages.
r2d2 package.mask #


Do I have to use the hole E17 from an overlay with ecomorph from the same overlay ?
Or is it possible to get it from a regular package from gentoo ???

Puzzled! :roll:

Regards,

BT

afaik ecomorph is WAAAY out of sync w/e since it stopped being updated quite awhile back. ecomorph requires its own modified e src so the two were a matched set, sort of like a fork. you could still run it but you'd be going quite a ways backwards in e releases to do so.

e has been adding its own fairly rudimentary compositing with the "comp" module for things like transparency, shadows, etc. and in svn they have "comp-scale" which can do some basic window/screen tricks (I always build from src so maybe there are ebuilds for that, don't know).

it pales in comparison to ecomorph imm but it's the best there is atm.

Actually, it is far from "fairly rudimentary". The problem is that the effects you need have to be customized in the theme - the theme for the comp module. You should be able to do quite arbitrary stuff with it, but no one has spent time in doing so.

Thank for the info, I won't try ecomorph for the moment.
I will read stuff about themes to see how it works before doing anything.

Regards,

Bernard :mrgreen:
