(Sorry for the inconvenience)

Enlightenment[1] is a lean, fast, modular, and extensible window manager. It provides a desktop for launching applications, managing windows, and doing other system tasks like suspending, reboots, and managing files.
Figure 6.6a: Enlightenment Running on PC-BSD®

The first time you run Enlightenment, you will be prompted to select your Language, then either a touchscreen or a standard computer profile. You will then be prompted to select the size of title bars, the type of window focus, and whether or not to use compositing. If in doubt, you can select the defaults by pressing "Next" at each initial configuration screen.

Figure 6.6a shows a screenshot of Enlightenment running a standard computer profile on PC-BSD® 9.1. The icon on the far left of the iBar has been clicked in order to access the applications menu.

Enlightenment is very customizable. The User Guide[2] describes how to configure windows, shelves, menus, wallpaper, and much more.
