This howto is suposed to make Beryl wok on Kubuntu. I will cut to the chase and tell ypou the first thing you have to do. You will have to keep the following open all the time during this howto. Open up a console and get ready to type. First, type, if you have not already done so:
Now, once you are rebooted and logged in, assuming you still have the GUI (that is, assuming you have done everything correctly), launch synaptic and search Beryl and find the package named Beryl. Mark it for installation and click apply. Then, once the installation is complete, search Beryl again, and find the package beryl-manager, and mark it for installation and install it. the hit:
Then if that worked (meaning you see the login screen afterwards), login, and open a terminal and type beryl-manager. Wait a second or two, and you see the red and grey beryl window borders.
To make Beryl run automatically, open, by any means, /home/user/.kde/autostart, where user is your linux username. Copy and paste the Beryl icon from K-Menu ---> System into the directory above. You are done. I will keep this thread open for any questions.
