How - Beryl in Ubuntu?


Some days ago a friend came to my home and show me a video of Ubuntu with Beryl. I was amazed of the incredible effects. I want to install Beryl in my Ubuntu 7.10. I surfed to Beryl Project website to get a download.

In the website, Beryl Distros I saw a Ubuntu - How to install. But when clicked i get a 404 error (page not found). So i download a tarball (aquamarine-0.2.1.tar.bz2). I guessed that must be the release name of that version of Beryl. After that, i opened read the install instructions.

Those instructions are not simple for Linux Newbie. but i manage to get in terminal change to directory where aquamarine is and do the "./configure" like the instructions said but i get this error

checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for -p flag to install... yes
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... mawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for kde-config... not found
configure: error: The important program kde-config was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.

Now i wanna know if theres a simple way to install Beryl?
if not
What can I do to solve the problem above?

Compiz-fusion comes by default in 7.10, compiz-fusion is a merge of the compiz and beryl projects, so there is no point in installing beryl in 7.10

It should have some effects enabled already, but you need to go into add/remove programs and search for compiz-fusion and get the manager for it
