Question Getting error "could not initialize dbus plugin" when starting beryl

Hi! I'm a complete Linux , and I need help. Anyone know what that "could not initialize dbus plugin" error could be? I can't copy the whole error message because when I start beryl I get the error and then my computer freezes and I have to reset. I'd really appreciate your help, since I've been going nuts because I'm dying to get beryl.

Thanks in advance!

Are you missing the beryl-dbus rpm?
I think that actually beryl is freezing your desktop session, to test do alt+ctl+F2 which puts you in a console window (just login at the prompt) and if the pc runs fine in this window then you can kill beryl (pkill beryl) then return to your session ctl+alt+F7 and restart beryl (restarting may be problematic, I have to use the menu to restart beryl-manager because everything else is appears dead)


beryl, dbus, errors
