i have beryl working (and have for some time). wanted to try compiz. emerged it, but when i try to start it using the beryl manager (or from the command line with compiz --replace) i get the error

Code:

libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x5b
compiz: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is not supported by direct rendering context, trying indirect rendering context instead
compiz: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
compiz: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz: No manageable screens found on display :0.0


and a few seconds later beryl reloads.

Try starting compiz with the provided '/usr/bin/compiz-start' script.

That's because of a bug in gtk-window-decorator; --replace doesn't work.

Try killing beryl's decorator before using compiz-start. You could also modify the script to do this.
