i rebooted the system (to clear everything out of ram) and loaded xgl
and checked to see that my window manager was set to beryl. Sure enough,
it wasnt (it was set to metacity). So i changed it to beryl. At first,
it gave me an error (and for the life of me, i cant remember what it
was). I tried changing it from one desktop manager to another and back
to beryl and it wont display that error again.
but No, i dont have any sort of red emerald (as i rearranged my desktop
and i think i may have taken out the notification area)

i dont really know what you mean by this question.
i just installed it from the ubuntu repository
