So I've recently gotten back to Gentoo from a way too long absence..
I've gone for E17 as my DE but I'm currently having some trouble with it.
First up is the fact that it won't recognize any of the .edj theme files that I've downloaded. If I try to load them nothing changes and if I try to import them I get a message about them not being real .edj files.

The second issue I've got is that I can't change wallpaper as a user (wheeled one) but as root it's working splendidly.

Edit: Oh and I used this http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/E17#Overlay as the guide for installing e17.

Well, you saw my thread about it. If you figure it out, I'd be interested in knowing what fixed it. 8)

There is a thread about recent theme problems on the enlightenment-users mailing list. The full thread hasn't hit the archives yet. The quick answer was:
Quote:
Few days ago edje binary format was changed. You need to convert old .edje
files, via edje_convert, like:
Code:
find ~/.e -name '*.edj' | xargs -n 1 edje_convert
