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.

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....?
