And if you're using KDE, put this in a .sh file:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
beryl-manager
I'd name it beryl.sh just so you know what it is.

Then put it in ~/.kde/Autostart/ and do this in a terminal:

cd ~/.kde/Autostart/
chmod +x beryl.sh
./beryl.sh

If Beryl Manager starts, then it works!

The special thing about this is that KDE automatically runs whatever it finds in that directory. So if you want to start other apps when KDE boots up as well, then just add the respective commands to your .sh file. For example, I have Mozilla Thunderbird in there, so every time I boot up, I can check my email with fewer clicks.
