can't install Beryl

Postby dw5437 on Tue Apr 01, 2008 3:53 pm

Now I have everything set up to use Beryl but it will not install. Here is my terminal. By the way, I cannot find anything in synaptic when I search for Beryl.

dw5437@dw5437-desktop:~$ sudo aptitude install beryl

I suppose this is posted because of todays date
Anyway Compiz is installed by default and you can't install Beryl because it's abandoned (joined compiz)
and thus you don't find in the repositories

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Thanks Husse. I finally set up compiz and everything works fine. Some days I just go brain dead and forget everything I ever learned. :D :D :D
Despite the date, I do not play on the forums. If y'all get a play room I will join it though. Appreciate your help.
