Okay, here's what happened:
1) INstead of "edit_eap" my system has "enlightenment_remote -start-eap-edit gkrellm.eap"
2) I created "eaps" for each Gkrellm and Esetroot and copied the names to ~/.e/e/applications/.order
3) I logged out; when I logged back in all I got was a white screen with my custom enlightenment mouse pointer.
4) I logged in on tty1 and edited the files. First I removed Esetroot, figuring that it was the Esetroot that was screwing things up. I logged in to E17 again and got the same white screen with custom mouse pointer ("dark" theme
). So, I went back to tty1 and removed everything from applications/.order. Now I'm back in E17 and still have my non-transparent Eterm
Is there a workspace-saving feature like in Afterstep?
Is there an option for Eterm himself to set the background image so that I can enable transparency? (it looks really cool with the "dark" theme!)
