    I know only the repository of the slackware 12/current , because i prefer to compile the packages from the source code.

    Have you try to compile beryl from source code , download them and the extract them after do for each the following
    ./configure (if this doesn't complain about anything then )
    make
    make install

    you need to have the libXcomposite and the libwnck and some others , but i'm using slackware 11 and dropline gnome wish contains a lot of packages , so i can't explain exactly the procedures in this under Slackware 12. i'm going to switch but not know ,but basically the best solution it's to use compiz instead ,and you can install beryl if you like by installing all the missing package that the configure script will tell you about them

    regards.

    you can use compiz by typing compiz --replace , but there is some required configuration related to each VGA , but in principle you have to add the following line in your xorg.conf

    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "Enable"
    EndSection


    Sure these effects are possible in Slackware but you must know all the configuration in slackware should be done manually .

    I have beryl working.
    I compiled each package & fix the dependecies as they come.

    I will try compiz --replace from terminal.

    The title bar will go and no effects. I think there is dependency problems.

    slackware 12 has xorg 7.3 so no need to update it.
    How to manually update xorg?


    How to get cube effect?

    How to get cube effect?
    I don't know really what is the difference between the compiz compiled for Slackware and the one for ubuntu, because under Slackware i didn't manage to run correctly compiz ! for my i810 vga , but under ubuntu it runs good .

    but what i see is ubuntu runs a script before executing compiz, the script is located in /usr/bin called compiz wish after running it calls the compiz.real !

    but i'm running beryl in my Slackware and it's quite good, one you or me found the Solution for Slackware we will post here , i like compiz because it's more stable however i'm not having a serious problem in beryl.

    You got the cube effect with ubuntu ?

    as i told you , ubuntu has a script to enable/disable some feature before running compiz , in Slackware there is no script , you run the compiz decorator and the menu bars disappears !

    but this wroked for me , but i'm running slackware 11 , with Xorg used from KateOS (Xorg 7.2).
    LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 compiz –replace –indirect-rendering gconf&

    probably in kde you should try something like this !
    compiz --replace decoration wobbly fade minimize cube move place resize rotate scale switcher water zoom &
    kde-window-decorator &
