Hello.

I wanted to give a try E17 (once more), and (once more) it seems not to work.

I got this same problem in this laptop some months ago as well. But at that moment I couldn't even bother to search for a solution. The problem is easily describable: I run enlightenment_startx from my .xinitrc, the screen shuts down, I reboot.

For a second I can see a couple of terminals that are launched from .xinitrc, then it sits there for a second or two, I don't see any panels or anything E17 related. The screen shuts down but the laptop is working there's disk activity, and if sshd is running I can remotely login). The only problem is that the screen goes off. Changing vt won't turn it back on either. So I have to reboot.

My .xinitrc file does a lot of stuff, but the problem is not there (I have like 20 WMs in there, and all of them work fine, it's launching enlightenment_start) which screws up the whole thing.

Below I paste the log from the last run, in case someone can make any logic out of it. By the way, this is an r300 chip, the driver is well tested and stable, and in any case no other WM and/or compositor has given me this kind of problem.

Code:

The last few lines are probably due to X being killed when I press the power button and ACPI takes into scene so I wouldn't worry about them.

Thanks for reading and for any idea you can share :)


Postscript: it just ocurred to me that maybe E17 is, for some odd reason, turning off my monitor in favor of one of the non-existent ones. This laptop has three image outputs, according to xrandr.

Code:
# xrandr -q
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1440 x 900, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
LVDS connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1440x900       60.0*+
   1280x854       59.9 
   1280x800       59.8 
   1280x720       59.9 
   1152x768       59.8 
   1024x768       59.9 
   800x600        59.9 
   848x480        59.7 
   720x480        59.7 
   640x480        59.4 
S-video disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)


Now the problem is to figure out how to change that if that's even possible. :roll:

I suggest you disable xcb for e17 and it's libraries. E18 (efl) will issue a warning during configure, saying xcb being poorly supported.

E18 is out for a while and >=0.18.3 works overall nicely for me. You might want to give that one a try.

I am trying what you suggested, so far it's been working for a few hours without any major glitch.

It looks nice and all... but from a usability standpoint I am struggling to make any sense out of this (well, I felt the same way in the old enlightenment so that was to be expected).

Configuring key bindings is a pain. I have to go back and forth only to configure super+number bindings to change the active desktop page. I took me like ten minutes to do so, because for some reason it was binding the keys in the wrong order. I suspect I am not getting the basics of the workflow in that dialog (not that they are clearly indicated or particularly intuitive anyway).

Also, the feature to remember window pasition and size is, for the most part, completely broken when it comes to terminal windows (at least, it is so for urxvt).

Besides that, there are minor annoyances, like my mouse moving by itself (I really, really, really hate that). I am sure it can be disabled somewhere though. I just have to find it ;) Or the way that the feature to automatically change desktop on the left and right borders interferes with panels on such borders when you set them to autohide. Or the default autoraise value for windows when you set the sloppy focus feature which makes the whole thing unusable... Again, I am sure this is all configurable, but...

Going back to key bindings, I guess I need to do some reading or something. Configuring a bunch of key bindings can't possibly be that difficult. Maybe it's just that I have become so accustomed to plain text config files...

But I am going offtopic. I'll just keep you informed if this crashes or something. I consider this solved since the purpose of the thread was to be able to launch the desktop, and that part is not done, so, thank you :)
