Release 0.2 was released last week and I finally got it to work on Ubuntu Edgy Efty (6.10) installed on a Laptop with an Intel 9xx Graphics card and Laptop.
The instructions in summary:
Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following lines :
deb http://ubuntu.beryl-project.org edgy main
deb-src http://ubuntu.beryl-project.org edgy main
Update the list :
sudo apt-get update
And install the following packages :
sudo aptitude install beryl
This should install "recommended" packages as well as required and emerald-themes is one of the recommended packages
Navigate to Applications->System Tools->Beryl Manager
Have fun :)
More detailed installation instructions (e.g. automating startup) are here http://wiki.beryl-project.org/wiki/Install_Beryl_on_Ubuntu_Edgy_with_AIGLX
I also borrowed some tips from http://tnlessone.wordpress.com/2007/03/17/upgrading-to-beryl-020/
Note:I have also the 915resolution package setup on my laptop so as to ensure I get the full 1400x1050 resolution on my laptop.
