Beryl Stuffing up my Titlebars

Postby LostOverThere » Fri Aug 31, 2007 1:23 am

Well, I'm not sure if anyone else has had this problem, but whenever I turn on Beryl, it eats my tooltips like so:

Uh, Like this

Pretty much all that happens is I start Beryl (It did this even before I started changing the Beryl Settings) and it seems to eat my top toolbar.

Any suggestions?

I don't see anything out of the ordinary except a red blob

There's no title bar with the Title, Minimize, Close, Enlarge buttons.

Damn it - I did not see that, you were talking about tooltips :)
This is a well known Beryl "bug"
It can be caused by a theme without those buttons
or Beryl in general. Here is a post from when I knew less :)

If you have a nvidia card I think this helps

Code: Select all

sudo nvidia-xconfig --add-argb-glx-visuals -d 24
then restart X
There is an equivalent for ATI
If not search in the forum for "beryl close buttons" and select "search for all terms" You get nine hits and the solution is certainly in one or more of them

Thanks again Husse.. :wink: Solved straight away!

How do you get Beryl to load automatically when the DE starts up?

In sessions. This how to has it:

Once beryl has started go to mintMenu > Preferences > Sessions and click on the “Startup Programsâ€￾ tab, once there click the add button and type
Code:
/usr/bin/beryl-manager

this will make the beryl manger start every time you login.
