    Has anyone beryled a lite desktop :D

    In the line of digital blasphemy (Akin to a an uncompressed TGA of a stick figure)

    has anyone gotten the odd idea of iceWm or fluxbox and beryl?

    No because iceWm, fluxbox and beryl all are window managers, hence you can only run one at a time.

    In gnome beryl replaces metacity, because metacity is a WM

    Ive been using gnome for a long time now, tried KDE in the past but never liked it.

    What would you say are the advantages and disadvantages of XFCE compared to Gnome?

    Im thinking of switching over to Xubuntu.

    I usually run Beryl by itself, works quite nice.

    beryl, in console mode, would be cool. you could do echo 'hello world' and have it actually echo.

    XFCE works quite well with Compiz.

    There's a video somewhere of Fluxbuntu running with Beryl instead of Fluxbox, maybe you should look on Youtube or somewhere for it.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
