The Official E17 How-to Thread
So far the latest version in portage is "enlightenment-0.16.9999".
Follow the HOWTO emerge e17 wiki for more info.



[*]How-To get a completly transparent Engage theme:
    download "module-transparent.edj" to "/usr/share/engage/themes"
    Code:
    cd /usr/share/engage/themes
    mv module.edj module-backup.edj
    cp module-transparent.edj module.edj

    Then restart enlightenment!

    To adjust the transparency (eg. to something a little less than 100% transparent) decompile module.edj and change "color: 255 255 255 0;" on line 34 of module.edc to something like "color: 255 255 255 40;"
    Code:
    cd /usr/share/engage/themes
    edje_decc module.edj
    cd module
    nano -w module.edc      #edit line 34
    ./build.sh
    cp module.edj ../

    Then restart enlightenment!


[*]How-To create a custom .eap file (enlightenment application file):
    open up a terminal and launch the program you want to make an .eap for
    in a terminal run "xprop WM_CLASS|cut -d \, -f 2", click on the program you want to make an .eap for
    the terminal will return the WM_CLASS name for the prgram you are making an .eap for, use this information when configuring your .eap with "e_util_eapp_edit" util.
    Code:

    cd ~/.e/e/applications/all
    e_util_eapp_edit <custom_app_name>.eap
