post ur n00biness there and they will answer in about 6 minutes with

oh wait whats this assface

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2...highlight=beryl

u probbly dont know how to click on a link so here

3 Great guides have been ported to the USDF here to cover nvidia, intel & ati.

Have a look here for other howtos on Beryl & Official Compiz

Go to #ubuntu-xgl on irc.freenode.net for support.

Nvidia have released beta versions of their 9xxx series drivers. In laymans terms, this allows compiz/beryl to now run directly on an x server (xorg7.1) without separate aiglx or xgl.

As far as i understand, you MUST remove all existing xgl/aiglx from your system for this method.

STEP 1: Add repos

Please ensure you have a completely updated pc before continuing:

Code:

Install your *ubuntu-desktop metapackage specific to your DE, e.g. sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Add one of these repos in "system>admin>software sources" or /etc/apt/sources.list

Code:

deb http://beryl-mirror.pricechild.co.uk edgy main

deb http://ubuntu.beryl-project.org edgy main

For the latest beryl.

This should work for the 64bit:

Code:

deb http://compiz-mirror.lupine.me.uk/ edgy main-edgy main-edgy-amd64

Run one of these commands to add Quinn's key.

Code:

wget http://beryl-mirror.lupine.me.uk/1609B551.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Don't forget to

Code:

sudo apt-get update

STEP 2: Install nvidia drivers

Option 1:

This section is borrowed from: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...8&postcount=62 & Aramanth off irc

The machine i used this on had previously installed Nvidia drivers from method 1: http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/Latest_Nvidia_Dapper

You must have this repo:

Code:

deb http://seerofsouls.com/ edgy contrib

or

Code:

deb http://ubuntu.lupine.me.uk/ edgy lrm-amd64

(for AMD64)

Added as well as another mirror in order to use this method.

(key at http://seerofsouls.com/ubuntu.html)

Code:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx

sudo apt-get upgrade

The upgrade should update your linux-restricted-modules & linux-restricted-modules-common packages.

Code:

sudo nvidia-xconfig

Should backup and update your xorg.conf

Restart the computer and your new drivers should be installed. (You will have to have had previously followed method 1 in the link above, or you will have to change xorg as outlined there.

Option2:

Ok... according to here you must remove linux-restricted-modules, which may remove functionality of some wireles cards etc.

However, mine is still working

If you would prefer to install the nvidia drivers from nvidia's script, you may simply download the NVIDIA beta drivers from here, then:

sudo nano /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common[/code

Add "nv" at the bottom. (no quotes)

Code:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential gcc gcc-3.4 xserver-xorg-dev

sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-glx nvidia-settings nvidia-kernel-common

sudo rm /etc/init.d/nvidia-*

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9629-pkg1.run

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

And restart your computer. The Nvidia script should change your xorg.conf to enable nvidia drivers, so this will work without any previous nvidia drivers.

Remember that following this method requires a reinstillation of them every time the kernel changes.

STEP 3: Install Beryl

Code:

sudo apt-get install beryl-core beryl-plugins beryl-plugins-data emerald beryl-settings beryl-manager beryl beryl-dev emerald-themes

STEP 4: Enable compositing in X

This next section is from: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=77030

in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (Remember to back it up again just incase)

Add this to Section "Screen"

Code:

# Enable 32-bit ARGB GLX Visuals

Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

# If you are using an older version of compiz that

# does not support rendering into the Composite

# Overlay Window, you will need to disable clipping

# of GLX rendering to the X Root window with this

# option, or you will get a blank screen after

# starting compiz:

# Option "DisableGLXRootClipping" "True"

After receiving black screens on login... i've hashed that last line and now all is fine.

As far as i know the following is deprecated... although you may as well try with it on and off to see the difference:

Quote:

Add

Quote:

Code:

Option "TripleBuffer" "true"

to Section "Device"

It should help with performance, especially during rain!

Personally, running rain with glxgears behind on a 5600xt 256Mb RAM, this line increased my FPS from 0.3 to 192. Also, the aladin's lamp animation is a lot smoother.

Restart your computer

Please ensure that your defauldepth is at 24!!! not 16!!!

STEP 5: Lets Go!

Type beryl-manager into alt+f2 or a terminal and all should work.

I hope this has worked If it doesn't then preferably try and get help in the IRC channel first: #ubuntu-xgl on irc.freenode.net If your problem gets fixed, then post it below and i'll add it to this main post if important

STEP 6: A few things you may want to change:

Some users may be experiencing a black screen on restarting X because of eeprom loading before X. Simply comment out eeprom in /etc/modules and you may get everything fixed I would reccomend checking your xorg.conf changes first though, as many people will not need to mess about with this latest fix.

In bsm, leave "sync to vblank" on

Don't use "detect refresh rate"

And set your refresh rate to what it should be.

You can find this out using:

Code:

nvidia-settings -q all | grep RefreshRate

See the thing is K1u, you made me stop watching a video, so I had to come deal with your shit. That is not good. You could have said "hey, here's a guide you can follow to do it, search google for this, its the 3rd link down, the one called "compiz + fancy shit 101". That way you can help them, tell them to google something and avoid using the phrase STFU. So your certified a n00b to warn others not to take you seriously.

Oh, and if you want fancy shit out the box, try fedora core 6, worked like a charm for me.
