33== Building and Dependencies ==
34
35 - [[https://git.enlightenment.org/core/efl.git/tree/README | EFL]]
36 - libpam (Linux only)
37
38Highly recommended to ensure proper functionality (though you can live
39without these):
40
41 - connman (For network configuration support)
42 - bluez5 (For bluetooth configuration and control)
43 - bc (For the evrything module calculator mode)
44 - pulseaudio (For proper audio device control and redirection)
45 - acpid (For systems with ACPI for lid events, AC/Battery plug in/out etc.)
46 - packagekit (For the built in system updates monitoring and updater)
47 - udisks2 (For removable storage mounting/unmounting)
48 - ddcutil (specifically libddcutil.so.2 for backlight control)
49 - gdb (If you want automatic backtraces on a crash in ~/.e-crashdump.txt - don't forget to build EFL and E with gdb debugging to make this useful)
50
51**Note:** Enlightenment 0.24.0-alpha depends on EFL **v1.24.0** or newer.
