Cassandra: Beryl problem

Postby ceti on Thu May 31, 2007 3:44 pm

Hi,

I installed cassandra today. When I enabled Beryl, I ended up with window borders and decorations not showing up. I installed the NVidia driver with Envy, it's ok. My DefaultDepth on xorg.conf is 24.

Is this a bug? It worked on Beta014

Please, help!

Cheers
Sorry, but that's the way it is.

Great, man!
I borrowed these lines from your xorg.conf and it worked:

Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
Option "RenderAccel" "True"
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"
Option "backingstore" "True"
Option "TripleBuffer" "True"

Thanks

I had the same problem and the only thing I needed to add was
Code: Select all
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

I doubt the additional lines are doing any harm, but anyone else who encounters the problem can start with this.

The rest is so my videos don't get choppy, when it's a movie like 300.
