I found the logs and all (/var/log/entrance.log, ~/.entrance_session.log
and some stuff in journalctl as well), but couldn't find a fix yet.

Basically entrance works, starts E, but after a couple seconds, E just
abruptly exits (crashes?)

I believe this has to do with ecore et Cie using /tmp/.ecore, sockets and
pipes and stuff in /tmp that belong to root user (with mode 0700), so the
login user can not use those. PulseAudio also fails to start because of
invalid permissions.

Not sure if something changed in EFL wrt. which folders are selected for
runtime files, but  EFL itself definitely breaks entrance.

[E-devel] Behavior break


I have learned that commit 5cb6cdbc5e1a13ea0262e155983b494e6519abde in
efl tree break all the past version of Enlightenment. Without patching
Enlightenment itself, there is no way to fix this apparently. We are
now very close to the release and this is breaking one of the few
application we have. I think this patch should be reverted asap.

Lately I've had some apparently random segfaults with a recent git

[E-devel] Work items for 1.15


We are only a few days away from beta3. Time to get a small list with 
items ready we want to get fixed before 1.15 gets out.

This comes up from my personal run through phab. Might be misguided, 
wrong or I might even had forgotten something.
Speak up if that is the case.

Please have a look at the following and see if you can help to fix them.

Phab show stopper: Gengrid is broken when scrolling fast

Phab high: 100%CPU, spinning in 
eina_list_data_find_list crashes when alt-tabbing Genlist crashes on clearing items 
in "selected" callback. E19 black screens with custom theme 
with EFL/Elementary 1.13+ Elementary.h includes Evas_GL.h Edje_CC does not handle nbsp 
properly on arm / remove nbsp in whitespace from flipselector.edc

[E-devel] Issue with Elm Entry and backspacing at the first character of a new line

Source code I'm working with ->

When I have a multi-line elm entry in ePad and I place my cursor at the
very first spot in a line and press the backspace key, the line is removed
as expected, but the cursor is no longer focused in the elm entry it was
just in. Causing the user to have to click back into the entry to continue
typing in it.

If you are using arch ePad is in the AUR and you can see what I mean for
