To all Romanians out there: I just added the Romanian translation.

It's funny though, that if you can read and understand this, it means you don't actually need it :)

I had a brief look at that script and I don't see XGL to be downloaded. I'm looking for XGL deb for Testing (to make Beryl working on GF 2 MX). Where should I look?

Why is it not for ATI or grafics card independent?

you change the System to SID.
Beryl and components works in Etch, too, without any problems. Take a look on it, i think it would be nice to have somthing for Etch, and it will be nice to switch your gnome relatet code to KDE ;)
beryl wirh emerald works fine in KDE in Etch, too.

Keep up the good work you're on the right way imo.

What does it have to do with kde-apps.org?

It's a taylored shell script for a specific distro, and the only interaction with the user is donw using a GNOME application.
