Beryl works….XGL sucks….

March 19, 2007 at 8:48 am

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T60 with a ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 graphics card in it that was purchased for me by work. For months on Edgy, I was not able to run Beryl at all. Now it seems the latest Beryl updates WORK on my T60. This is a good thing. The bad thing is XGL is frickin UNSTABLE AS HELL.

Has anyone gotten AIGLX to work on this card?? Any suggestion? Can I meake some tweaks to the X setup to make it better?

I really want to use Beryl as it’s the first Window Manager that has actually gotten me to USE the multiple Desktops just so I can hit Ctrl-alt and SPIN the windows in a cube and find the one I want. I especially like hte new 3d effect of popping the windows up like papers hovering over each side of the cube. Fantastic. Plus once people see how cool Beryl is I can then say this ONLY works on Linux! 😀 Anyway, if anyone has some suggestions, just leave me a comment.
