E-TextEditor a.k.a e is my favorite text editor on windows. AFAIK there is no text editor on linux that matches what e can do except for VIM. When I saw the post about making e open source I was pretty exited and wanted to try it out. More here
So I grabbed the source from GitHub and thought of building it. I am making this post to explain all the problems that I faced while building e. You may or may not face the same problem or you may face different problem altogether, so good luck.
