Beryl is the eye-candy effects for X-Windows. I have heard it compared to Windows’ Aero. It allows windows to shake like jello as you drag them and display previews of windows as you hover over them on the task bar.
Used yum to install: beryl-gnome
Note: This is a meta-package that will install the necessary packages.
I had to remove previously installed nvidia driver libraries:
[skp@localhost lib64]$ ls lib*9631
libGLcore.so.1.0.9631 libnvidia-cfg.so.1.0.9631 libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.9631
I created this script: /usr/local/bin/start-beryl
I had to make it executable:
chmod a+x start-beryl
From the command-line, I ran gnome-session-properties and:
- on Startup Programs
- clicked add — /usr/local/bin/start-beryl
