Install Enlightenment 0.19.1 in Linux Ubuntu and Mint Using PPA

Enlightenment is an open-source desktop environment, used by default on Bodhi Linux. It uses its own window manager, based on the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries, comes with nice and useful widgets and includes a lot of customization tools.

The latest version available is Enlightenment (E19) 0.19.1, which has been recently released, coming with the below fixes, among others:
  • don’t add nocomp damages for input-only windows
  • check protocol visibility for nocomp breaks, not comp object visibility
  • manually break out of nocomp
  • end nocomp on nocomp end…always
  • force render queue on unmaximize if client was fullscreen
  • add borderless theme for deskmirror clients to support various animations
  • comp render queue on every client resize instead of on unmaximize
  • force comp render queue more aggressively to detect changes in nocomp
  • client hooks should not continue to be called if the client has been deleted
  • thaw evas on winlist activation with no clients available
  • modules/teamwork: Use eina_file_mkstemp() to avoid problems with umask
  • fix: Add more desktops to be tiled by default in the tiling config.
