Did it work before?
Did you do anything more?
Please post your xorg.conf and tell us what video card and version (exactly) of Mint you have
Thought I'd let you know, i've now discovered what caused the original problem,before i broke beryl, and that was the oversized login screen, which was about 4 times the size of my monitor, this happens after you run sudo nvidia-settings and then save to xorg, this is something that i always do and i've always had that screen problem. this time round i've done a clean install, got all the updates( all 217 of them) then installed the restricted drivers last, then rebooted. everything looks fine, when i say fine what i realy mean is , absolutely perfect!. So this time i've decided to do something very strange, and that is NOTHING!.
The strange thing is i'm not getting the nvidia logo at startup and i'm not getting that window border problem where you have to run the command: sudo nvidia-xconfig --add-argb-glx-visuals -d 24, and beryl is working great. All this tells me that its the navidia settings app thats the real problem here, maybe thats why its not with the restricted drivers for hardy Heron anymore?
