Seeing Double

Postby George1955 on Sat Jul 14, 2007 6:33 pm

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?

Don't know what's happened to you. Let's try to sort it out
Is this just when you use Beryl or all the time?
You write
Whenever I open an application or webpage, it opens twice!!

Webpage - does this mean that when you click a link you open two pages?

Thanks
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 :P )

Nope that didn't work either.
