I’m running Ubuntu on a Dell with Intel integrated graphics, the Intel GMA 950. Traditionally, integrated graphics have been left out of the eye candy fun, but this recent chipset is actually pretty good. I’ve run Vista on this Dell, and the Aero effects work great, so I was pleased to find instructions on the Beryl forums where Fyda spelled out what you need to put in your xorg.conf to get X11 ready to run Beryl – Link

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.
