Beryl/Ati/XGL half working, half not!
 
I have recently installed Ubuntu Feisty on a laptop after previously having Edgly/Beryl working with my Radeon Mobile X1400.
Now that the OS is installed, I rapidly installed the ATI drivers and when I use ‘fglrxinfo’ it tells me its using the ATI drivers and its an ATI card. I added Beryl, emerald etc. via apt-get and created an XGL login session which seems to work.

When I run beryl-manager the icon appears but the window manager seems to change and revert back to metacity. In the ‘select window manager’ drop down I have beryl, compiz and metacity. If I use beryl, it *appears* to still be using metacity. If I select compiz then the window manager changes, the windows go all ‘wobbly’ but the title bar of the windows are missing (although I can still drag them about!) and the cube isn’t working!

Anyone know what I’ve done wrong or what’s not configured correctly?

Thanks

Regarding that 3D cube thing: Have u selected the 3D cube option given in the System->Preferences->Desktop Settings dialog?

For ur window manager problem: Try using the bundled Emerald window manager with Beryl.

I have tried all the window managers on the menu, but none of them work correclty. Compiz half works, but the others dont.
the cube is enabled but not fucntioning.

Thats almost the same as the guide i followed. The crazy thing is, the xgl login session is working, beryl is installed and running without error, fglrxinfo is displaying as expected but the program just isn't running correctly....?
