Installing packages using synaptic on Ubuntu 8.10


So Ive found the synaptic package installer, and was able to install wifi with ndiswrapper and nvidia graphics acceleration. Now I want to install Beryl but I cant find it in the synaptic list of programs. I have it in download manager.

Thank you for your help, I have it installed now.
Can you tell me how to use it to make the windows "explode" when closing and combine multiple windows into a 3d cube.
thanks again.

This should help you to configure all manner of different effects etc: http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/CCSM You will need to have the compiz config settings manager installed.
