Blender + Beryl shouldn't be aproblem. Just call blender -w and it opens blender
in a window. I use following .desktop file for a menu entry in KDE (should work
also with gnome, its a freedesktop.org standard):

cat /usr/share/applications/blender.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Blender 3D
Comment=3D modeling, animation and rendering
Comment[de]=3D Modellierung, Animation und Rendering
Exec=blender -w %U

When I call Alt+F2 and enter blender, it runs this .desktop file -> blender in a window. :)
But most of the time I run blender from yakuake, so I can see the terminal output.
