#93508 Self-help: Error Loading Enlightenment Module After Update

Posted by Malach on 02 August 2015 - 02:34 PM

I had this issue yesterday and Deepspeed helped me with it and asked me to put a self-fix post on the forums.
After running eepDater I received the following error message upon restart:

I had the same error message for the module engage.
It seems the naming can get mixed up on update and the workaround appears to be correctly naming the directory that the module.so file is located in.
The path to the module.so on my system is:


Although on other systems it can be:


A good search to get the correct path is to enter the following at a command prompt:

cd /usr/lib/*linux-gnu/enlightenment/modules 


cd /usr/local/lib/enlightenment/modules

Once you have cd'd into the correct enlightenment modules directory you can ls at a command prompt to see the available directories. One of them should be the module that the error message says can't be found. In my case ecomorph and engage, although it could be any module.

Cd into the correct module and ls to see what directories are located there. There should be a directory that begins with linux-gnu and ends in 0.1.0 in my case it was linux-gnu-x86_64-0.1.0. This directory needed to be renamed to linux-gnu-x86_64-0.17.6 in my case.
A quick way to rename this directory is to use the mv command:

sudo mv linux-gnu-x86_64-0.1.0 linux-gnu-x86_64-0.17.6 

There should be a space between the directory names and it is possible to use Ctl+Shift+c to copy and Ctl+Shift+v to paste in terminology.


This has solved both of my problems. I have intentionally made these instructions usable for people who might be newer to terminal commands, I hope it isn't too long.

The xrandr method worked for me this time from that link. I had tried it before, I am sure it was some sort of user error. I must have used the command as written and I needed to change the display in the command to what my display is called. Anyway thanks so much, I appreciate your help.

@ Malach  Nice Clean desktop! Can you post your conky or at least the calendar part of it?

Thanks Randy, the conky is located here, there are some fonts it calls for also but you should be able to find them. 
Sometimes it is a pain to make it transparent because of how enlightenment does the wallpaper, there are good instructions on this here at question six. I used the feh method explained there and it works well when I have issues.
This conky is really a VinDSL template that I modified quite a bit, there are tons of pretty cool ones later on in this thread. Like after page 1600.

Thanks again, I finally found some themes that would work using synaptic package manager. I hadn't been able to before. I am really starting to enjoy this operating system. You guys rock.
