You should find an enlightenment directory in your users home directory where you should find the applet config files there. They are basically plain text config files you just add and remove whatever programs you want by specifying the path, name, etc.

I am not at one of my machines to tell you the exact location but if you browse that directory you'll find them.

"Emacs" "/home/justin/.enlightenment/gnome_icons/gnome-emacs.png" exec "emacs"

so this is what i tried to do with emelfm

Is /home/justin/emelfm-0.9.2/ the path to the icon you want to use?

Well I just noticed that the other, example, path is to an icon, so why dont you make your one to the icon of emelfm, or just some default icon?
