Instructions for installation and trouble shooting is available @
I always have to tweek a bit to get Beryl working. Most of the issues
that I have faced with Berly are Missing window decorations and Black
screens. They have been unique to nvidia cards and the beryl wiki page
has good info about fixing these issues. I always backup xorg.conf file
before tying out.
I dont feel a difference in performance while using beryl on my lenovo
3000 n100 laptop with 128MB nvidia go 7300 card. Not sure about intel
