sorry about the settings problem. we fixed multiple problems
yesterday (see https://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/2148). there
was a really strange line in local.conf saying EXTENDPE = "" , which
will cause a lot of problems. I have no idea who put that in...
there used to be a wrench and qwerty button enabled theme, and now
raster's illume default theme (illume-theme-illume,
illume-config-illume) provides the same functionalities with a very
different look. OM's theme will remain as it is like our designer
wants it to be. you are free to switch between these two though, by
setting it inside /etc/enlightenment/default_profile.
