Manjaro Net 0.8.7 – E17

Tutorial, if this can be called like that, starts once you install Manjaro from Net install .iso. I am not going to explain how to do that, if you do not know how to do that, just end it without starting. Try Bodhi linux instead.
Manjaro is based on Arch and brings same problematic configuration. This will cover basic how to get Enlightenment desktop on net version of Manjaro.

Once you have installed Manjaro Net edition you should update it, doubt somebody wants to use outdated software/packages.

Firstly login

sudo bash
pacman -Syyu

You might type above command twice to make sure all is up to date.

As I am almost 100% sure you will want to use yaourt repositories, you will need to compile some stuff and for that you need base-devel, I have installed ALL packages from it:

pacman -S base-devel

Now we can get starting for E17. Firstly we need to prepare login manger for it.

nano .xinitrc

Then type this in the end of that file:

Click CTRL+X, then Y then Enter.

Now it is time to install some packages which we will need for a start:

pacman -S enlightenment17 slim terminology  yaourt leafpad

Now it is time to enable login manger which we just installed:

sudo systemctl enable connman

Mostly you will not be using LAN cable all the time, like me, and will need some GUI for wireless, E17 has one, which is very light, however will conflict with some packages already installed:

pacman -R netctl openresolv
yaourt -S connman econnman
sudo systemctl enable connman

Now it is time to reboot and see our login manager, windows manager and working network manager.

The rest is up to you, rest of this are steps which I do, partition mounting, software installation, they are not so frendly explained:

yaourt -S google-chrome deadbeef spotify faenza-cupertino-icon-theme archey qbittorrent minitube-git 

pacman -S gimp mirage k3b clipit vlc libreoffice-calc libreoffice-writer lxtask arandr

Archey config in the end of file:

leafpad .bashrc

archey -C blue

lsblk -f
leafpad /etc/fstab
