The download link for Beryl seems to be broken.

OpenDrive was down recently, and the broken link must be its consequence.

I have re-uploaded the file. There should not be any issues now.

Beryl is working fine for me, no problems with download.
I like the themes.
Thanks for making this available!
EDIT: Forgot to mention I have Lucid 528.

Very Happy Hello,
D/L the pet and will give it a go..
Does Beryl require GL like Compiz??
And arent they merged in Compiz/Fusion..
I thought Beryl was unsupported since then...
Sure is a lot smaller than Compiz...

I found to get this to work nicely, and not have issues with lxpanel, I just installed the xorg package, and the python package, and then beryl, and it works like a treat.

The only issue, which isn't major for me, is I can no longer right click on the desktop to bring up the menu.

Sub_title: so far..

non-lucid 5xx

Tried the dotpets (python & beryl-219) on w514 (wary), got the 'gears' anim on beryl install.. Major issue for me is that all window/bar/panel interiors are blank white areas, no decor either (afaict) in beryl - basically the only bindings that work for me are Ctrl+Alt+bs (exit to prompt) and midclick+drag (seems to change the bg solid->gradient and 'move the cube' with some other blank white areas?)

Had to do any beryl settings from another wm (with the vast variety of settings, it's all too easy to fubar the oem .. and I never did find how to make window/bar/panels display usefully). The beryl-manager would only load in the systray with " --no-force-window-manager" option (in a useful-for-me wm). Yep, theme preview page looks nice (in blackbox, anyhow).

Other - generally I only load a roxpin 'on-demand' and the composite extension (xcompmgr) works fine in other wms like jwm for translucency/opacity. Wbar, conky, appbar, lxpanel .. they're all blanks - wbar will launch apps as usual (guess-click since no display), but only so much to be done with blank windows. Oh well.
