Beryl part of Fedora Extras now

Filed under
Software

Thanks to Jarod Wilson Beryl is now part of Fedora Extras and can therefore be installed without any additional configuration - just fire up yum or Pirut, and install beryl-gnome or beryl-kde, depending on what desktop environment you prefer.

Also, the packages which has been included come along with two nice extras:

* The package aquamarine can be used as a window manager inside of beryl. It will use the window themes you chosen in the normal KDE control center.
* heliodor supports Metacity themes and is therefore a drop in replacement for the GNOME users.

There might be more in the future.

Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
