I just installed Beryl on my radeon 9800 pro and it works pretty well! All the effects works, everything seems to be nice. I just found that my "gnome" look .. I don't know how to call it seems to be an "old version" look :


Look at my firefox menu bar and my taskbar at the bottom. How can I make them looks sweet back ? Thanks

Hey redfinger... use the gnome theme manager to make your gnome taskbar and icons look a little nicer...

Click: Bianca mintMenu > Control Center > Desktop > Theme

Play around with the different themes and icon sets and find one you like. This may mess up your Beryl theme but going back into Emerald after you are done and reselecting your Beryl theme should have everything looking nice.

Best of luck with Linux Mint + Beryl! :-D

Thanks for the help but I had already tried this. The theme change (title bar) but my gnome bar at the bottom stay the same. Same thing if I select Metacity window manager, the gnome bar stay the same. Any ideas ?? Thank you.

The gnome bar definitely changes for me... which GTK theme are you using? Have you modified it from the default?

I'm using the Bianca (Blue) theme and this is what it made my gnome bar look like: (hope this like works... if not try copy and pasting it)

Hey guys, I just found what was wrong. I just had to put

Code: Select all

in my startup programs and after that, my gnome looks sweet again. Thanks for the help!

hmm it's probably because I installed Beryl with the "automatic" method for ubuntu and Ati ... GL_and_ATI
I just reinstall it and at the end it said that if we have a ugly gnome after, just to put that in our startup program list.. I did and it work's so I guess that this script mess up with my gnome settings

Ah yeah :) the automatic method is still "beta" I think. I did it the good old fashioned way :wink:
