I am assuming you mean http://desk3d.sourceforge.net/ , yes?

If so I just tried it in Fedora Core 1. Very cool eye candy but it doesn't do anything more useful than impress the natives. It is also quite a resource hog.

I am also assuming that you need (as the webpage states) imlib2-devel and it may also complain about libGL.so.1 (or something).

If you are going to build it yourself as I did you will need the imlib2 and imlib2-devel package.

If you just want to install it from the prebuilt RPM you should only need the imlib2 package (there is a source listed on the bottom of the link I posted).

If it still complains about libGL.so.1 then just try installing it with the nodeps option to RPM. This is a common wierdness due to using Nvidia drivers from Nvidia.

If you don't have full 3D accellerated graphics system none of the above will help.

This http://desk3d.sourceforge.net/README explains everything in detail.
