Beryl has merged with compiz a couple of months ago. No point in installing Beryl, it is now part of Compiz. Almost all plugins are already ported. Are you missing anything?

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.

Either by typing its name, or possibly ccsm. In a terminal or in that quicklaunch thingy (alt-F2).
I don't have it installed so I'm not sure.
