A few days ago we met a new version of Enlightenment 20, Desk very light but also very nice which makes powerful desktops like Unity or KDE. Enlightenment 20 or also known as E20 is the new version that brings among other things fixes for major desktop errors.
It is also the first version that brings support for Wayland, The next graphical server next to MIR. Alongside these developments are others such as the inclusion of new widgets, a new one geolocation module which will allow us to use in desktop computers and a new program of audio mixer. But the most important thing is to fix bugs that have been problematic since the development team released the versions following E17, especially the latest version, the E19.
How to install Enlightenment 20 on Ubuntu 15.10
The installation of this desktop must be through an external repository as the latest stable version of the desktop included in the official Ubuntu repositories is known as I16 and is quite obsolete. So the best way is to open a terminal and type the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:enlightenment-git/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install e20 terminology
This will start the installation of Enlightenment 20 on our Ubuntu, but maybe instead of wanting E20 we want the traditional E17 version, Something that can still be had, in this case, the installation process would be like this:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:enlightenment-git/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install e17 terminology
We must not forget that once we have installed the Enlightenment desktop, we need to disable the PPA repository because if not Ubuntu will install updates and some may not suit us or problems, if we do not care about that, then we will not disable anything.
It seems that Enlightenment 20 is an important version as it not only supports Wayland but also fixes many bugs, A bit of what users and developers like the Bodhi Linux team are complaining about. Hopefully this comes to fruition and this version finally satisfies everyone.
