Hello everyone, i am a beryl enthusiast as in i like Beryl, i am very pleased with ubuntu's default ability to install drivers and enable compiz, but I still want to get Beryl going under 7 10... has anyone been able to do this, and if so do you know of a tutorial or instructions, or can you tell me what you did different from feisty etc.. thank you very much,
Lol sorry,... ive been getting loose in the linux department lately, the new release of ubuntu has been drawing me back, is there a compiz with "the cube" etc. b/c the one that come's default on ubuntu don't have that stuff..... explanation?
Oh, you are right... Since this looked so much like it did in fedora (system - preferences - appearance - desktop effects) I assumed that you could start the compiz-config settings manager from there. I was wrong. Apparently you have to install it, its available in the repos.
It should be... you can either do a search in synaptic - Start it with: 'gksu synaptic'.
Or you can search from the command line with 'apt-cache search compiz config'
Both will tell you that the package is called compizconfig-settings-manager
If it really isn't there, enable the 'community-maintained' repo.
