Everyone seems to associate beryl with a 3D rotating cube. Well, try this in beryl-settings-manager:
- General Options menu, General Options – change Horizontal Virtual Size to 8.
- Desktop menu, Rotate Cube – increase the Zoom setting (mine is around 14).
- Visual Effects menu, 3D Effects – check “Draw backsides of windows” under Advanced.
- Visual Effects menu, 3D Effects – check “Enable window depth”
- Play around with the various acceleration, time-step, speed interval, and transparency settings.
- Add skycaps and a skydome, and turn on rotating with mouse wheel.
You will end up with transparent rotating desktop octagon or other other polygonal desktop (past 10 really looks busy) with pop-out 3D application windows that float over the desktop – looks even more impressive than a rotating cube. All rotating in your skydome backdrop image.
Beryl just rules.
