I have a PC with these specs
Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller
Celeron(R) CPU 2.4GHz
768 MB RAM

I've already installed Ubuntu Edgy and am trying to install Beryl.
A google search brought up a lot of pages that explain how to install Beryl on ATI drivers.

Is it possible to install Beryl on Intel graphics controller?


thanks for your help

Hi MnInShdw,

You video chip is Intel 82845, you cannot use XGL with this video card.  The proper steps to follow is here http://wiki.beryl-project.org/wiki/Install_Beryl_on_Ubuntu_Edgy_with_AIGLX.  For Intel graphics chips, only AIGLX is supporting them (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager/AIGLX).
