Add this section to your /etc/apt/sources.list, the commented line starting with "wget" is the command to issue to import the gpg key for the beryl repository. Then do an "apt-get update".
Code:
#################
##### Beryl #####
#################
#wget http://debian.beryl-project.org/root@lupine.me.uk.gpg -O- | apt-key add -
deb http://debian.beryl-project.org/ etch main
deb-src http://debian.beryl-project.org/ etch main
Then to install beryl, issue this command, using aptitude if that's your method instead of "apt-get".
Code:
apt-get install beryl emerald emerald-themes
Then you need to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, mine is below if you want to try it, I have an Nvidia GeForce 6800 card using the Nvidia proprietary drivers from Nvidia's site. You need to install proprietary drivers, and the card must support 3d.
Code:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder26)  Sat May 26 01:03:50 PDT 2007

# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
