Beryl killed some stuff...

Postby NiksaVel on Mon Apr 16, 2007 1:04 pm

Here is some stuff that Beryl killed after I installed it...

Suspend no longer works... actually it suspends okay, but returning from suspend no longer works, I just get a black screen with my mouse cursor and a box shaped part of screen is dostorted in colors and that's all... sometimes ctrl-alt-backspace works and I can relogin succesfully, BUT I have to reload windows manager for Beryl to work again, and sometimes it just freezes the comp.


Checkgmail icon in tray shows the lists of incoming mails, but it is no longer possible to click on any of the links there (i.e. mark read, delete etc)


Not sure, but I believe Amarok loaded a lot faster b4...

That's all for now :)

Wow, I never realized it was probably causing my suspend and hibernation issues... duh! Are you running Gnome?

Do I add the repo given on this page?

http://blog.beryl-project.org/?p=31

If so, what do I do with the current version of Beryl that I'm running? I installed it manually and got the packages through apt. Do I need to remove them, add new repos and update? Or can I just add the new repos and update?

Thanks!!

I believe that when you enter new repos, the updater should offer to update your beryl...

Enter the new repos and then tell Synaptic to "install" Beryl and Emerald (again) ... it will notice that there is a newer version and update the old versions present in the system. Should work without troubles.

EDIT: Of course, you should do a "sudo apt-get update" after changing the repos or else Synaptic won't notice the new packages. :wink:
