Enlightenment: Terminal Transparency Workaround

With my recent e17 install, I was unable to set a transparent background in any of terminal programs (xfce terminal, gnome-terminal, mrxvt, etc.).

Well, not exactly, I was able to set a transparent background, but the effect didn't take.

I was able to correct it using Esetroot which is part of eterm-utils:

  $ Esetroot ~/Pictures/02043_conch_1280x960.jpg

This is more of a pseudo-transparency I believe. The picture you choose can be different than that used for your wallpaper, which I think is pretty cool.
