Tips and tricks. by Monkiboi

If you're creating a config file from scratch make sure you have these two lines at the top of the file:

#include <definitions>
__E_CFG_VERSION 0

otherwise Enlightenment will ignore the file completely. This has been pointed out to me a number of time by people trying to get the "desktop icons" tutorial to work.


By default enlightenment will stretch an image to fill an area. This is not always ideal (i.e. patterns) and we've found a little documented rule that allows the image to be tiled. Simply place:

__FILL_RULE TILE

into the image class you want tiling to occur. To be honest I can't remember what parameters affect the tiled image but if I recall correctly it was simply a matter of adding this rule and away we went.


Please send any themeing tips to me and i'll put them here with a credit.
