Display Issues w/ Debian Lenny & Beryl


Hello

I have just installed debian lenny and the beryl packages from http://debian.beryl-project.org. Beryl runs fine, but it causes windows in GNOME to not fully display their contents unless I minimize and unminimize that window each time I want to refresh it. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Is it probably just a bug?

Never had that issue here with Lenny 32bit and 64bit and beryl using Nvidia GeForce 6800 and driver from Nvidia. Did you also install Emerald and Emerald-themes?. What kind of graphics card and driver do you have?.

I'm using the built in Intel i915 video card that uses the i915 kernel module and the 'intel' X11 module. Also I did install Emerald and Emerald-themes and emerald works. I tried using Compiz as the window manager as opposed to Beryl as well and experienced the same problem. Here is my xorg.conf:

My Nvidia card crapped out on me not too long ago. I also am in the same boat now as I have i915 chip set but am using a cheap ATI PCI graphics card with no 3D support. The Intel integrated graphics do not support 3D also, you need a 3d capable graphics card for the desktop effects provided by Compiz and Beryl.

My graphics card does support 3D though and it is working; Beryl, Compiz and Emerald all work perfectly aside from that issue with GNOME. When I run glxinfo:

$ glxinfo |grep rendering
libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x56
direct rendering: Yes

When I run glxgears:

$ glxgears
2455 frames in 5.0 seconds = 490.959 FPS
2693 frames in 5.0 seconds = 538.149 FPS
2530 frames in 5.0 seconds = 505.042 FPS
2616 frames in 5.0 seconds = 522.901 FPS
