34== Building and Dependencies ==
35
36 - [[https://git.enlightenment.org/core/efl.git/tree/README | EFL]]
37 - libpam (Linux only)
38
39Highly recommended to ensure proper functionality (though you can live
40without these):
41
42 - connman (For network configuration support)
43 - bluez5 (For bluetooth configuration and control)
44 - bc (For the evrything module calculator mode)
45 - pulseaudio (For proper audio device control and redirection)
46 - acpid (For systems with ACPI for lid events, AC/Battery plug in/out etc.)
47 - packagekit (For the built in system updates monitoring and updater)
48 - udisks2 (For removable storage mounting/unmounting)
49 - ddcutil (specifically libddcutil.so.2 for backlight control)
50 - 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)
51
52**Note:** Enlightenment 0.24.0 depends on EFL **v1.24.1** or newer.
