    Beryl settings manager does not start


    I successfully installed beryl after many efforts. It seems to run (transparent windows, beryl cube, etc) but the problem is that when I click the settings manager nothing happens. Any ideas?

    Have you tried running beryl-manager on the command line? Do that and post output here, I had a similar problem that was because Python couldn't import berylsettings

    I cannot run the settings manager. the red icon appears in my tray and I can select windows manager, advanced beryl options etc. But I cannot start the settings manager. Also when i type "beryl-settings" output is :

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/beryl-settings", line 23, in <module>
    import gtk
    ImportError: No module named gtk

    I'm pretty sure that Juan Pablo was asking you to open a terminal window and type in "beryl-manager" (without the quotes) and post the out put here on the forums.

    There is no problem with the "beryl-manager". It starts. The problem is with "beryl-settings"

    Do you have python-gtk installed? I think the settings manager is written in python.

    Yes it is installed. Everything needed is installed. This is really annoying. My laptop's suse configuration is exactly as my desktop's. But it is impossible to run settings manager. Is there a way to manually adjust the settings?
