Autostarting beryl messes up systray


I have an entry in ~/.kde/Autostart to start beryl automatically when I login.
The problem is, some of my system tray icons end up floating on the desktop every so often.
Is there anyway to stop this? Maybe by making sure beryl starts before everything else?
I'm using beryl with xorg 7 and nvidia driver so I don't have xgl installed so I don't think I can do it from the X startup scripts (or maybe I can?).

Try loading it from your .xprofile, it worked for me

Hmm, I don't have a .xprofile. Can I just create it, presumably in my home dir? And if so, what would the correct entry be?

yes, just put the line as if you launch it from a konsole in a file called .xprofile in your home.

Good luck

Well I tried it on suse, sidux and ubuntu and it didn't work on any of them unfortunately. Could it be something Slackware specific? I don't use beryl on Vector so I haven't tried on that.
