[Solved] Beryl Plugin "Desktop Cube" - zoom, no worky

Hey guys,

I know your all two ticks shy of bashing the next Beryl questioners head in, but.... let's go for one.

My system:

KDE 3.5
Beryl 2.1 (from xeffects overlay)
fglrx drivers
Xgl composite manager

My Problem:

I want to zoom out when rotating the desktop cube.

I have tried setting the "Unfold Zoomback Distance" slider, but it seems to have no effect. I have tried all the other settings, but nothing seems to work. I can't find anyone with Google who has the same problem.

Any ideas?

I believe what you're looking for is:
Beryl Settings Manager > "Visual Effects" tab > Rotate Cube > General Behavior > Zoom.

Hey SlowCoder. Thank you for your reply. I feel silly for not spotting it before.
For me though, it's in Beryl Settings Manager > Desktop > Rotate Cube > Behavior > General > Zoom

However your map helped me find it, so thanks again.
