Steps and Tips about Wrench tool in ASU theme

enlightenment_remote

Wrench probably used utility enlightenment_remote

This tool is able to

  • Load, Unload and List modules     ( ENABLED = AUTOSTART, module must be LOADed before doing this )
  • Restart enlightenment, reboot OM, logout from session
  • Manage fonts, virtual desktops, winlist and process freeze detection&killing
  • And a lot of less important (some not available on FR) functions

To use it from SSH you need to setup environment variable E_IPC_SOCKET. Because it points to a file, it isn't hard to locate it. Just do this:

ls /tmp/enlightenment-root

For reply "disp-:0.0-2166|0" do

NOTE: Don't forget to escape colon (":") and remove anything after pipe ("


export E_IPC_SOCKET=/tmp/enlightenment-root/disp-\:0.0-2166

Now you should be able to use this tool from SSH connection

eet -- Way to change enlightenment .cfg files

I've got recently this mail from enlightenment mailing list:

you have to use "eet" command line utility, it is the tool that reads .src and turns then into .cfg if you check out Makefile (and Makefile.am).

 eet -l e.cfg  # list all keys, usually just "config"
 eet -d e.cfg config e.src # writes human readable values to file e.src
 $EDITOR e.src # change whatever you like
 eet -e e.cfg config e.src 1  # compile human readable values to binary form and use compression

If you find that useful and want to help, please create a wiki page with your new knowledge.


More complete instruction will appear tomorrow
