oh well, i finally got it going. compiz is actually installed by default whew! this is really though for linux noobs but the experience that I gain through this is worthy. I even created a website that will cater my personal experiences with linux mint. it's still under development. im just hoping that other users who came from windows will be able to see how easy it was to shift to linux mint. thanks a lot guys for developing linux mint. You rock!
I have the new Daryna and my question is: How do I enable the end caps etc in Compiz/Beryl. There is not a Beryl manager in the menu. I haven't had time to play around much, but I'm assuming I'll have to do this through the "configuration editor", or can I just install the Beryl manager via synaptic? Thanks in advance
