    Question Installing Beryl on BT2.0

    hi guys!

    ok, this is what i would like to do, if possible please tell me how to do it!

    i have a dual boot windows Vista with BT2.

    But i love what Beryl can do - have downloaded Sabayon live CD jsut cos beryl is installed onto it.

    Is it possible, and How/ is there alternatives - to getting Beryl functionality on BT2

    Thanks!

    I have installed it several times, but not on BT so i don't know how it would work there... but there are a lot of nice walkthroughs about installing beryl, just google around a while and i'll bet you'll find several.. but i'll look into it a bit on my own too and let you know if i find something useful

    how did you know that was going to happen ?

    anyways, something was obviously not right about the way I installed beryl because i never could switch from the KDE to the Beryl window manager after installing .. and after rebooting I did not get into any window manager but I am almost positive that this has something to do with the changes I made to the xorg.conf .. I'll have to work on some homework today so I don't know if I'll bother with any troubleshooting today... unless someone wants to write a report on mobile database implementation for me and let me work on installing beryl

    well, I'll probably have a look at it again tomorrow or on tuesday but if someone tries and succeeds with the installation please post here
