Beryl Installed.. now blank screen with stripes
i've installed Beryl with the automatic install script. Everything boots up the same but after the Kubuntu load screen i get a black screen with grey, vertical lines coming from the bottom of the screen. When i type in my password i do hear the login sound. i have run 'apt-get remove beryl' and it did so with no problem. The problem still persists. The script installed Nvidia drivers which i did not have installed before. This is what i think is causing the problem. Any ideas? i am not sure what to do.

I am SuSE user and would use "sax2" if I get any display problems.
Not sure if it is there on Kubuntu, give a try

i did that 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg' to get things working again last night. Then i reinstalled Nvidia drivers manually. The same thing happen. So now i know for sure it is not Beryl causing the problem but the Nvidia drivers.
What is the difference between 'nv' and 'vesa'? How should i go about getting the best use out of my Nvidia Geforce FX Go5700 card? Try installing Nvidia drivers again, use 'nv' or use 'vesa'? i don't know much AT ALL about these things.

Hey which drivers are you installing. You need 3d drivers for beryl !!! If you dont have 3d drivers you get white screen with stripes.

Vesa is a generic driver and it works for almost all graphics cards ( it doesn't work for a few ATI cards though). 'nv' is generic driver for all types of nVidia Cards. check /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers folder. all drivers are stored there.
install nVidia Driver specific for your card for best use.
