Evas is the preferred graphics engine as it provides most eye-candy.
It requires Imlib2 and freetype2 and supports a number of optional libraries.
The canvas is what evidence puts the icons of the icon-view and the
shelf on. You may use GNOME-canvas, or the enlightenment canvas, evas.
GNOME-canvas would be part of your distribution of GNU/Linux and may well
be on your system already. evas means one more file to download, but it
also means having a much fancier icon-view in the end.
You may download the packages, or build from CVS.
|freetype2||needed by evas. required, but I bet this is on your system already.|
|imlib2||fancy thumbnails. without imlib2, you will only get
thumbnails (image previews) for PNG and JPG format images;
with it, for about a dozen others, as well as previews
for TrueType fonts. some theme-plugins such as the
text-path also use imlib2 for fancier looks (but
may usually be built to less effect without imlib2).|
highly recommened when building from source; required for ready-made binary packages.
|ebg||enlightened background. ebony is a (legacy) editor to create enlightenment 17 backdrops. to use ebony, you need ebg. ebg backgrounds are stored in edb-files, so if want ebg, you'll need edb as well. required only when using ebony.|
|edb||enlightened data-base. needed only if you want to use legacy data files from the first incarnation of enlightenment-17 that never made it out of CVS. ebony-created enlightenment 17 backgrounds and etcher-created e17 scrollbars come in this format. optional; required when using ebg.|
|eet||enlightened compressed archive. for now, one more format to thumbnail. will become more important in the future as edje/EWL uses it. optional.|
