Bleeding Edge TV 231: Eee PC Full Desktop Mode, and installing Beryl for more awesomeness


The second in our series of Asus Eee PC how-to videos, this episode features instructions on how to activate the ‘s hidden Full Desktop Mode, a power-user mode featuring a launcher similar to the Start menu from Windows. Additionally, Nate True demonstrates how to activate Beryl, a 3d desktop effect engine that adds stunning visual effects to your desktop, including windows that stretch and wobble like Jell-O when you move them around and a rotating desktop cube display.

The process to install and activate Beryl is a bit involved, though the results are quite worth it. Check out the video for the details - and as promised, here are the two long lines so you can copy and paste them to your console:

To authorize the community Eee PC repository:

curl http://download.tuxfamily.org/eeepcrepos/key.asc | sudo apt-key add -

Remember the trailing hyphen (-) IS required. To authorize the Beryl repository:

curl http://debian.beryl-project.org/root@lupine.me.uk.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

Again, the ending hyphen (-) is required. We have a few more Eee PC hacks on the way, so be sure you are subscribed so you don’t miss any.
