Beryl - No effects manager?


I just successfully configured my system for Beryl, and everything is working fine. I have Beryl effects and everything -- but I can't change them!

When I r-click on the Beryl icon in the top panel, a menu should pop up with an option to go to the Beryl Effects Manager or something similiar, right? I don't get that. I get the Emerald Theme Manager as an option, and all the window rendering and advanced options, but no way to change the effects. I get the same menu when I go to Applications >> System Tools >> Beryl, AND when I use the terminal to it.

Help?

First, Look in System/Preferences and see if "Emerald Theme Manager" is there. If so, that will change your beryl themes.

If its not there.

open a terminal

sudo apt-get install emerald

That should also install emerald-themes. If it doesn't, also install emerald-themes with sudo apt-get install emerald-themes.

Once that is done, go to System/Preferences/Emerald Theme Manager.

I believe you want beryl-manager. Try starting that from a shell.

No, I get Emerald Theme Manager in the menu, it works fine. I'm talking about whatever you use to change the active effects for Beryl -- such as the way windows close/open and the cube properties.

Sorry, I misread your post, the first paragraph I thought read I can't change themes, not can't change them. Yes, beryl-manager should do it.

Running beryl-manager just opens up the same menu. I did some searching, and I'm missing the beryl-settings program. That's what's missing from the menu, and when I go to run it from terminal, it can't find it.

RESOLVED:
Hah, I feel like an idiot. I didn't realize that Terminal was telling me how to install beryl-settings when I tried running it.
