Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Enlightenment is a lightweight, very customizable desktop environment with lots of effects, panels, widgets that need low resources. Enlightenment E18 has been released recently, coming with support for Wayland, the new music-control with support for mpris2 (similar to Ubuntu’s Sound Menu), support for bluez4 for better management for the bluetooth devices, a new appmenu, improvements for the EFM file manager and many others, for more information, see the official changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install Enlightenment E18 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia and Linux Mint 13 Maya.
Because it will be soon available via PPA, installing Enlightenment E18 on the latest versions of Ubuntu and Linux Mint is easy. All you have to do is add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index and install the enlightenment package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vase/ppa
