Hello all, I;m a new user to Linux and Mint Linux. I just installed Mint on my PC (Xfce version) and have completed some software updates. Next, I would like to get the 3D desktop up and running. I see Beryl, Beryl Manager and Envy in System and Emerald Theme Manager in Settings.

1. Which of these are already installed and which do I need to install?
2. If they are all installed, which manager do I click on first to setup the software? I am familiar with Compiz Fusion but not Beryl/Emerald.

Beryl and Emerald are installed. You click on Beryl in the menu and the Beryl icon appears in the panel - right click and select Beryl as your window manager and you're done.
Then you can start Emerald and play around - provided you have installed 3D drivers for your video card.
If you exerience problems there are several threads in the forum and articles in the wiki to help you
