    Enna use case 

    Let me introduce you a very cool usage of Enna (v0.4.0 from Ubuntu Packages). These photos have been taken at the home of a coworker of mine. He have integrate a PC running GNU/Linux and a 17″ touchscreen  in his wall. The mediacenter has two video outputs, one for the touchsreen and another for a video projector.
    This is so funny !!!

    Don’t blame me these pictures have been taken with an iPhone (bouhh!)

      good think of doing in every home. I’ve just one question for you, is possible to modify the Exit’s bottom of Enna to make the shut down of the OS directly from it, without close Enna first and then OS?
      thanks a lot

      Cool project 🙂 I like it very much.
      However, i got some problems and have no idea where to get help.

      Hope you can direct me to the right place. Mailing list or something.

    Enna Compilation on Ubuntu 

    As neither eina nor EFL are released, you must compile them. They are Ubuntu packages for EFL but they are old, and API have changed. If you use them, compilation should failed. It’s better to compile all libraries with your little fingers 🙂
    The result :

    Enna Main Menu

    Enna Main Menu

    (More …)

      I just tried out the latest version in svn/hg and I must say I am pretty excited on how this project will turn out.

      Add TV-support and I will install this on my HTPC as soon as it reaches product quality.

      Keep up the nice work!

      And in order to use libplayer, don’t forget:

      sudo aptitude install mplayer

    • daryl 11:17 pm on October 31, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      whoa…. I have seen enna in CVS (now svn) for some time now. This is the first time I have seen in up an going. As the easy_e17 script skipped rage I am assuming that this is not the media center app for e17???

      Ok I like it but here is my one question. I am a CEDIA certified home theater installer and I can not live without surround sound. I know how to send commands to mplayer instructing it to utilize alsa to pass through the ac3 and dts audio tracks. I am not familiar with libplayer but I am wondering if the context is the same? Will the same commands that tell mplayer to preserve and not to downmix that beautiful 5.1 track be applicable to Enna?

    • captainigloo 10:26 am on November 1, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      I think that rage is not a full mediacenter app. It’s Raster’s toy. This app is in E SVN to show what we can do with EFL. Enna is more a mediacenter app, and is more usefull.

      For you mplayer question, I’m not 100% sure that what you want to do is possible, but I guess mplayer options are compatible with enna. Mathieu and Ben (libplayer’s authors) could answer better but I think that mplayer options in $HOME/.mplayer are not overrided by enna. So ac3 adn dts track could be play like you do without enna. Enna just embeded mplayer window.
      If you use emotion as main enna backend, you can’t do this.

    • Mathieu SCHROETER 12:08 pm on November 1, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Nico you are right!

      Just put the configuration in ~/.mplayer/config, the file will be read by MPlayer.

      I know that it’s a obvious thing for a power user like us 🙂 , but you mistyped the autogen.sh line… it’s “–prefix” instread of “-prefix”. Newbie may be in trouble with this!
      Just installed… looks very very nice!

      It’s seems that they are a problem in WordPress CSS. – – are render as juste one -. When you do a copy/paste into terminal, – – are transorfmed in a bad character. I should maybe change the current theme to avoid this kind of problem !
      Thanks for this report :).

      I’m stuck again when making enna. The error I get is:

      enna_module_photo.c: In function ‘_create_menu’:
      enna_module_photo.c:378: error: ‘Enna_Module_Photo’ has no member named ‘item_class’

      Can someone assist me with this?


    • captainigloo 9:19 am on March 7, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hi Stefan,
      It’s a bit compilicated to compile enna these days, As i have done some changes, add elementary as have seen. Last week E guys have break some of EFL api so I had to change some part of enna too.
      Today I think that you should compile without problem.

      First you must have all uptodate libs from E17. To update your libs :
      svn update
      ./autogen.sh –prefix=/usr
      make install
      for each libs :
      eina, eet, embryo, ecore, edje, elementary, libplayer, libvalhalha, and enna.
      libvahala is new , but in a very good shape, and developped by Mat. I think that i will blog about this in a near future.
      Hope that this infos help you


    • captainigloo 9:25 am on March 7, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      oops livalhala can be found on geexbox repository.
      So if you want test it : hg clone http://hg.geexbox.org/libvalhalla/

      thank you!

    • Stefan 10:42 pm on March 7, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      FYI; all the EFL libraries where at head (39412) but I still get the same error. I will keep trying 🙂

      • captainigloo 11:35 am on March 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        you have maybe some of them installed in /usr/local/lib ?

    • eric 10:35 am on April 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      i have the same problem as Stefan. maybe the dmesg may help:

      Hi, I get stuck while making enna. This is whats get printed:

      The root of the problem may be that I haven’t successfully installed the libvalhalla, I’m missing libavformat which I cannot find on the urpmi. Anyone?

    • alexandre 11:36 am on October 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Enna looks really great, but I get a problem while compiling enna, it tells me there is “No package ‘libvalhalla’ found”.

      And when I want to compile libvalhalla, I get the following error :

      ~/libvalhalla$ ./configure && make && sudo make install
      Checking for compiler available…
      Checking for libavformat …

      Checking for libexif …
      Package libnfo was not found in the pkg-config search path.
      Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libnfo.pc’
      to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
      No package ‘libnfo’ found
      Package libnfo was not found in the pkg-config search path.

      Error, can’t find libnfo !
      See file “config.log” produced by configure for more details.

      I hope you will help me, I don’t no the way I can get libnfo, when I did sudo apt-cache search libnfo, I got nothing.

      has anyone successfully built MPlayer (not Media Player) for a Windows
      CE device? If so, any recommendations to get started is gratefully

      What I want to achieve is to play video and audio from RTP streams.

      Best regards!
