Building and Dependencies

If you have an existing EFL or Elementary install, you may wish to delete its header files and libraries before compiling and installing to avoid possible conflicts during compilation. Please compile the dependencies in the following order (click for README):

  1. efl
  2. elementary
  3. emotion_generic_players
  4. evas_generic_loaders

Note: E20 depends on EFL v1.15.2 or newer for X11 compositing, and 1.16 for Wayland support.

Below are links to the project pages for each of the dependencies:
