  1. Yup, you do this in the terminal. Whenever you see instructions that start with “sudo” you can be 99.99% sure it is something to be run via terminal.

  3. This isn’t working on 64-bit. Nothing happens when I open it and if I run it from the terminal, I get a bunch of warnings and an error:

    [libplayer/mplayer] Err: error during MPlayer initialization
    [Enna] [mediaplayer.c:936] Err: Mediaplayer initialization

  7. Worked fine for me in 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10. I did not really like it though but thanks for the tutorial, I’ll have to keep an eye out for future updates maybe it will get better with time.

  9. Hi, I’m from france and want to use Enna on my Karmic but I have the same issue “[Enna] [mediaplayer.c:936] Err: Mediaplayer initialization” when I launch this application. I had already update mplayer and it’s the same error ! Please help !

  10. You really should have messed up your MPlayer installation. If “mplayer” starts well in a shell, there’s no reason it won’t work in Enna

  11. I have been waiting on enna for a long time and it is great to see this release. It is really more of a multimedia desktop than a standard app.

    I should mention that, ironicaly given its heritage, this version is incompatible with e17 from the “official” e17 repos at packages.enlightenment.org due to library versioning issues. It does however work nicely with e17 built from current source code.

    Enna is a great demo of the power of the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries as a cross-platform development tool.

  12. I installed this Enna successfully but I am unable to find the option to change the city. The weather shows New York. I guess it should have read the city from the Ubuntu config but it doesn’t. Any idea how to do it.

    Best regards

  13. I cant get this to work i dont have the permissions to save the source list file every time i try to save it it says it doesn’t exist. I am assuming this is because linux only gives you permissions for your users home directory nothing else. i am a linux nube and need some help. Please and thank you

    sudo su
    Give your password (the password that you provided while installing ubuntu)

    Traverse to the specified directory and then perform the install.
