Projects / Enlightenment


Enlightenment is a themeable, fast, flexible, and powerful window manager that is designed to be as configurable as possible in both look and feel. In addition, Enlightenment provides an applet API that provides functionality somewhere between the GNOME applet system and Dock Apps from Afterstep/WindowMaker. The current design aim is for Enlightenment to become a desktop shell.

            More a question than a comment: I can't figure out how to connect to my wireless network. The programs I can find allow me to put in specifications, but there is no "Connect" feature that I can find in any of them.

            How should I go about connecting?
