One thing that disturbed me was that my favorite terminal emulator
aterm only used the background image of the first desktop for
pseudo-transparency, which is kind of icky if you have four different
However, it can be solved quite easily by calling :
eesh -e 'hints xroot root'
shortly after Enlightenment starts.
aterm (and other apps using
pseudo-transparency that are not Enlightenment specific) will now get
the backgrounds right.
In fact, this
eesh, the Enlightenment extended shell is a very
cool tool to “speak” to Enlightenment using simple scripts.
I’m building a Ruby library to abstract the interface of
eesh in a
object-oriented way, and I’ve already implemented a sample, IMHO very
useful function, moving windows until they touch some other window.
As a side effect, I also can do stuff like “focus the next window on the left-hand side of the current one” now. Something I always wanted.
The code still needs a bit of polishing and there is a small bug to be fixed, but will it follow.
