Bug Description

Have been using
http://wiki.beryl-project.org/wiki/Install_Beryl_on_Ubuntu_Feisty_with_nVidia
to try to get Beryl working, I have however previously installed the
'Official' Ubuntu Beryl packages (not sure if this is relevant). I
have installed the 'new' binary nVidia drivers and they seemed to work
(were in fact VERY fast).

Anyway if I forrloed the instructions, restarted gdm and when I turn
on the desktop affects in the Ubuntu (Preferences?) menu I get wobbly
windows (but the desktop switch is not working). Thing is as soon as
I start the beryl-manager I seem to loose the windows manager (i.e. I
can see/use the windows but the theme has gone and I can move/resize
windows).

Any idea whats going on?

This is more of a support query (https://answers.launchpad.net/ ) than a bug report...

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. However, this beryl package is not from the official Ubuntu repositories, and as such is not supported here. Please report this bug upstream at http://bugs.beryl-project.org/ . Thanks!
