A new feature of openSUSE 12.3 was the final version of include Enlightenment , E17, but only in the repositories, because it does not fit in in the DVD image. Now, according to Phoronix echo, distribution developers are considering this desk take the place of LXDE, that “there seems to be very much alive”.
The reasons for this change, which is being discussed in the openSUSE mailing list factory, would be mentioned, that does not fit all on one DVD and LXDE seems to have a too active, which is not entirely true, because although the desktop version numbering remains constant light, its different components if they receive updates from time to time. At the same time, no one could say that the development of E17 is a roundabout, when the development of the current version is “completed” last December, after 12 years of work.
biggest problem solving conducted this proposal would be the inability to install from the DVD to LXDE desktop environment , and is thus posed other ways, such as leaving out both E17 LXDE as the installation image, and include the option to access YaST both with an Internet connection, redundant, since the same facility as they continue and will remain available in the repositories.
Before jumping the ‘opensuseros’ bolder should be noted that it is possible to do so from the YaST installer , and include few additional repositories you want, choose packages, etc. ., but are options for the experienced user.
Back then, you’d think users prefer LXDE E17 to at least seeing the results of our latest survey, which ended yesterday and we’ll find out tomorrow.
