How to Install Enlightenment E22 via PPA on Ubuntu 17.10

   Enlightenment originally began as a project to create a Window Manager for X11. Since then it's grown into the one million lines of C code that form the EFL libraries, as well as a Window Manager and a set of applications. There's a vibrant and active community of developers and users who work on and use the code every day.

Enlightenment E22 Highlights:
  • Greatly improved Wayland support
  • Improvements to new gadget infrastructure
  • Added a sudo/ssh askpass utility gui
  • meson build system
  • tiling policy improvements
  • integrated per-window volume controls
  • See release note for details. 

Installation instructions:

Run the following commands in Terminal to install Enlightenment E22, via PPA, on Ubuntu:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:niko2040/e19

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install enlightenment

 If everything goes well, log out and select log back with Enlightenment session.

Option, uninstall Enlightenment E22 Desktop

$ sudo apt-get remove enlightenment && sudo apt-get autoremove
