How do I get Beryl to run at startup on PCLinuxOS 2007?

I don't HAVE to have it run at startup, but it gets old having to re-enable it after every reboot. I'm a noob to Linux, but if someone can point me in the right direction...

Um... shouldn't you be using compiz/fusion? Never mind... you add it to your startup scripts.

The generic method is to add the CLI commands to the end of /etc/rc.local

If you have a fully-updated version of PCLinuxOS, you will no longer have Beryl, it will have been replaced by Compiz-Fusion.

To get it running on startup, you run PCLinuxOS Control Centre, Hardware, Configure 3D Desktop Effects.

Go to the PCLinuxOS site for details of how to run it on a "per-user" basis using "Fusion-Icon".
