seriously, you did all this?
wow.
does it work?

you only mention "installing", not compiling, and you don't specify the version - you do know that e17 is in debian stable repos, yes?
Code:
apt install e17

Just as general advice, I recommend that you install TimeShift and use that in the future to make a system snapshot before you test new software that may change the system - that way you can muck around to your heart's content in the knowledge that you can revert to that snapshot if you want.

Messing with stuff is fine and to be encouraged! It's just a good idea to have a handy "wish I'd never done this" button.

All the best with your exploration of Enlightenment.

hemlocktree you shouldve probably done this from a live persistent usb/hdd install so you can start over if anything gets messed up lol

I'm going to boot into my persistent Stretch live and see if I can install that stuff and help you figure it out
