I was trying to get Beryl working properly and somehow or other I've wound up having two of everything in the panel at the bottom of the screen.
Whenever I open an application or webpage, it opens twice!!
Does anyone have any idea what causes this?
No I tried to setup Beryl but couldn't get it to work properly. So I started to fiddle around with different settings then gave up. Now hhenever I open any application two icons appear in the panel, however only one application is opens. Everything else is fine.
The only reason I played around with Beryl is that I changed my video card from ATI and bought a Nvidia GEForce 5500
You might have two windowlist-like controls in your panel? (or two identical panels for that matter?) Try removing one by right-clicking in an empty space where normally open applications would be listed and select remove from panel.
I know this seems like a simple solution, but often you look over the simplest things and try to look for an answer way too far... (It happens to me all the time )
