Beryl debuts a dazzling community-built 3-D desktop

Thursday, November 09, 2006

From the article:
As we reported in September, a group of developers forked SUSE's Compiz compositing window manager to create a community-based project called Beryl. The new project has quickly become a popular choice for supporting the 3-D desktop effects that make the Linux desktop sizzle these days. I installed Beryl on Ubuntu Edgy and have been running it for the past week. I find Beryl impressive, but, predictably, unstable.

Read more @ Linux.com!

Note from the Nerd: Wow, Beryl looks nice. I am really liking my current setup with Xgl and compiz, but it isn't all that great for gaming and such, as Xgl likes to mess some things up. But really, I don't game much. Sadly the compiz session manager I had installed a while back (see post: New Compiz Manager is SUPER 1337!!!!) is messing up for some odd reason. Whenever I switch to a different window manager such as kwin, and then go back to compiz, problems appear. The cube doesn't rotate well, and whenever maximizing or minimizing a window, the screen turns black for a second.... odd... oh well, I'll see what I can do about it. But really, Beryl looks nice! Go Linux and Open Source!!!
