Beryl on a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop

Postby moparman44 on Wed Aug 08, 2007 6:08 am

I have read many forums about Beryl and using ATI Graphics cards... I have tried all the ones I have found. My Dell has an Express 200m ati graphics card with 256mb ram. It is listed as able to work with 3d effects, and I have used Beryl on Pclinuxos with no problems so I know it works. I was just wondering if anyone has had any luck getting it to work on Mint. I have tried all the suggestions in the Ubuntu Forums...still no luck I am running the latest ATI driver (38.6). I also have installed compiz-fusion. Anything to do with 3d effects just refuse to work. Any help would be appreciated.
Here is my config file:

Though you posted in the How Tos I will give some advice.
This is from here, just don't use the hole thing and always backup files before editing them. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=440962&page=3
Code: Select all
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf(5) manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
