Mailing Lists

If you want to contact Enna's developpers or follow project's development you can subscribe to GeeXboX development mailing list, and send us an e-mail.
You can subscribe to GeeXboX commits mailing list to be informed of all modifications that occured on Enna's mercurial repository.


We always lack of C developers and fully welcome new players to join the team. If you're interested in Enna's development, here are a few prerequisites:
  • Acquire EFL, through their latest releases and snapshots. Right now, Enna only a few mandatory libs from EFL project, namely Eina, Eet, Evas, Ecore, Efreet, Embryo, Edje and E_Dbus.
  • Acquire libnfo (optional but still recommended).
  • Acquire libvalhalla
  • Acquire libplayer
As a convenience, these librairies have already been packaged for Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) users. If you run on this distribution, the easiest for you might be to add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb karmic main

Once done, you may just install the required librairies through the following command:

aptitude update
aptitude install libeina-dev libeet-dev libevas-dev libevas-engines libevas-engines-extras libecore-dev libefreet-dev libembryo-dev libedje-dev libedje-bin libedbus-dev libhal-dev libhal-storage-dev libnfo-dev libplayer-dev libvalhalla-dev
