I was thrilled to see a slew of new Beryl packages land in Ubuntu yesterday.
There’s been a furious amount of activity from the MOTU and Beryl upstreams to get these packages ready for Feisty inclusion – cleaning up copyright issues as well as getting the packages themselves into first class order. Now the rest of us can test Beryl simply by:
- enabling universe in /etc/apt/sources.list (or, in Ubuntu, just use System->Administration->Software sources)
- installing Beryl (“sudo apt-get install beryl”)
After I’d done this, I could get Beryl up pretty much immediately by just running “beryl-manager” at the command prompt.
A huge thank you to the folks who worked so hard to get this done in time for Feisty – lupine_85, racarr, imbrandon, pricechild, and others! The MOTU team’s response to this challenge was awesome.
