Well...I'd recommend doing these two things:<br />
<br />
1) Use google/ubuntuforums/beryl-wiki to your greatest advantage. NOTE: Unless you weren't catching on, that would be _EXACTLY_ where I'd pull stuff from if I was telling you what to do. It's the answer key.<br />
<br />
2) Be more specific. What works? What doesn't? How exactly does it crash?<br />
<br />
I can't really answer your question. There is no magical command you type and all of your troubles go away...let's be realistic, here

Just follow the appropiate links. Start of with XGL/AIGLX installation then follow the instructions for the CompositeManager/Beryl. The only thing that changes between installation in different desktop environments is how XGL is set up.

I think if you follow <a href="http://wiki.beryl-project.org/index.php/Install/Ubuntu/Dapper/XGL#Running_Beryl" target="_blank">this guide</a> to the bottom of the page you should be good to go.<br />
<br />
Let us know if you need any help (making a script to put in ~/.kde/Autostart, etc).
