debian has all the little bugs worked out of it now. i saw different examples or beryl, and have since tried to install it through different gui programs and automatic scripts with the same result. looking at the terminal(and i can post what it says if anyone asks), it shows that half of the urls that it tries to access don't load, so therefore it can't get beryl. it's the exact same result every time. have things since been updated since the packages i have were created?
