yum install beryl

Wants to install kdebase and a lot of other kde stuff! I'm trying to keep my FC6 install kde free!

Edit: You can't install beryl without beryl-kde :(

yum install beryl --exclude=beryl-kde

Missing Dependency: beryl-kde = 0.1.2-6.fc6 is needed by package beryl

Sorry, Seve, it's no good to me if I have to install kde stuff.

OK, if I install it (I have all the KDE base packages installed) do I have to do anything special to activate it since I'm using the latest NVIDIA Kernel from the livna? Also, how does one enable it?

Thanks!

No problem Seve, it's only eye-candy and not worth installing kdebase and libs for :D Installing kde stuff in Gnome is like putting fruit in good beer :eek:

Hi,
I think I now what your problem is. yum install beryl installs every single beryl package. Try yum install beryl-gnome.

Brilliant piece of detective work! Well spotted, thanks!

Edit: so, if you want everything it's:

yum install beryl

If you only want a KDE specific install:

yum install beryl-kde

And Gnome as above!

As you know by now, I am very slow :)

That, being said, did it work out for you?

Kind of works, although it's a tad slow but I'm using ancient hardware. What I do need though is someone to tell me how to fix this (See attached shot) As can be seen I've lost a bit of the right side of my screen!

Evening Wayne,

So... Is it worth it?

I remember seeing a thread about that black bar. But I'll be dipped if I can find it now.

It's installed and working (slowly) but the right side is still a black rectangle. I seem to remember a fix being mentioned somewhere but never did find it.

I found some things to add to xorg.conf but they didn't help.

Hello Wayne:
Not that beryl is mission critical or anything, however, I have to admit it is pretty cool.
Even for an slow old fart like me :)

Dan ....... we must fix this dude up :eek:

Aye! That we must! :p

I've read these till my eyes crossed, but nothing strikes me as a fix.

WayneThank you, I discovered it can also be invoked by beryl-manager from a terminal session. It's running great here.
