Since there seems to some interest in E17, here is a screen shot of Bodhi Linux installed on Mint 11 LXDE. Right now the wall paper says bodhi, I need to create one that says bodhi + linuxmint. So far running well with no problems, memory usage, for me, is less under E17 than LXDE. Installing was pretty easy to do. I just added the bodhi repo to the /etc/apt/sources.list. Then do an update, since there is no gpg key, the system will always ask if you want to install from an untrusted source.
## Bodhi Linux Repo
# US Mirror
# German Mirror
# deb http://nexus.nsroot.cz.cc/bodhi
# Swedish Mirror
# deb http://mirrorc0re.se/bodhi
I know it say lucid but that does not seem to be a problem. Then installed the following: enlightenment, bodhi-profiles, taskbar, places and any other modules you want such as forecasts. Also install some themes, bodhi-theme-(theme name). It is probably easier to do in Synaptic.
Logout and choose the enlightenment desktop from the lxdm menu and that was it. If anything goes wrong you still have LXDE.
