Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

first - sorry for my bad english :)

the beryl project is not longer supported. the projects "beryl" and "compiz" are now one project named "compiz fusion".
to configure it - install the package compizconfig-settings-manager via apt-get or synaptic :)

for kde you have to reinstall the KDE package (or use the install-package "KDE Community Edition BETA 011" for daryna ^^)
-> apt-get install kde or via Synaptic :)

Thanks lucifer,
But would compiz be similar to what I got in beryl?

Also for KDE, if I dont want to reinstall the whole OS, how do I do it?
By "apt-get install kde" will my current installation be able to load KDE?

Compiz-fusion is containing all the things what beryl. (as far as I know, I did not use beryl)
